She's taking 'Her Sweet Time', making music, telling stories, traveling the back roads, never in a hurry; it's like a lazy night by the campfire, or a party in your good friend's kitchen. Originally from Ontario and Quebec, Beth Miller and Caroline Shooner first met in 1996 on the open stage of the Fat Cat, in St. John's, Newfoundland. Beth bought Caroline a beer, one thing led to another, and they became musical pals... Inspired by her adventures and her small town origins, Beth's tunes convey in a story-telling style the tender bittersweet quality of everyday life. Montreal-born Caroline adds to the mix her sweet harmonies and the twang of her banjo. She also contributes the occasional French 'chanson'. The girls took to the road in 1999, wandering from Cape Spear to Vancouver Island in their old van Lizzie (may she rest in peace). The trip and a few van troubles inspired the idea of Her Sweet Time, a reflection on their new direction in music and in life. From one big island to another, they traded the North Atlantic winter storms for February crocuses, and settled in Victoria, BC. 'Storm Dancing' is Her Sweet Time's latest CD. Beth and Caroline definetely took their sweet time with this new recording. After a year on the road, traveling the country and digging their roots in Ireland and the Czech Republic, the pair returned to Victoria. In the tradition of their first album, they set up a home recording studio and, in between sirens and dogs barking, managed to record a few sweet tracks. Fall was a good time to launch "Storm Dancing". The season seems to inspire the same themes: thankfulness, remembering folks who are no longer here, letting go and moving on... This new CD is about being grateful for it all.
