This is not the musical or any of the U.S. bands with this name—this is an early 1990s band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Comments:

This is a collection of lively pop songs with harmonic vocals, the best of which (to my tastes at least) feature the odd vocals of Meg Lunney. The songs are not all bouncy, of course, there are some lovely ballads like "Good News" and "Beneath The Willow", which has an almost traditional feel, but mostly this has a delightful energetic and fun upbeat feel.
