“Main Street Parade” and “We Are Giants” by A Fine Surprise

On stage for the first time at Hollywood’s Hotel Café, something magical happened between solo performers Louise Goffin and Billy Harvey as they traded songs during the show. The immediate and unexpected chemistry prompted them to form the duo A Fine Surprise.

They recently released two singles “Main Street Parade” and “We Are Giants.” The songs are melodic and soothing; a perfect mix of bright acoustic guitars and soaring voices.

Louise Lynn Goffin is a songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and a recording artist. Her musical talent provides the right color of instrumentation while her lyrics and top-line vocal phrasing often brings an emotional vibrancy to the music she helps create.

Over the years, Billy Harvey has been playing his own brand of post-modern pop, working not only as a songwriter but also as a producer. He has also been quietly directing, animating, and editing the accompanying music videos to his records, culminating in his 2008 documentary, Everywhere Now. The film premiered at the SXSW film fest to rave reviews.
