The Lucky Valentines (No. 1402)

The Lucky Valentines, a Fort Benton, Montana based trio, use a mix of folk melodic sensibilities, tight harmonies, and a whole lotta love to make sad things beautiful. Their organic, timeless sound emits sadness, joy, and wonder, creating an acoustic adventure centered around the human experience. Jamie and Shaun Carrier, who form the backbone of this trio, are married with several children, and they bring the compassion and empathy necessary to raise a family into these very intimate stories. Jamie and Shaun are joined by Grant Stebbins, a multi-instrumentalist playing banjo, lap steel, bass, mandolin, and dobro. He says that playing with The Lucky Valentines is a great opportunity to get back to his folk roots. Jamie and Shaun have been making music together for since 2010, and 2020 marks the release of their second studio album. They've written upward of sixty songs, played hundreds of live shows together and have been featured on Montana Public Radio's Musician's Spotlight, at Austin's Iconic Hole in the Wall Cafe, and the Red Ants Pants Music Festival. Their poignant sound is personal, direct, and stirring.
