About Us

Hi there!

We are The Greater Good.

We are Charmain Lovett on vocals and Dave Stacey on guitar and we are so excited to be able to bring you an awesome selection of acoustic tunes for all occasions and all tastes.

We like to keep our setlist varied and throw in some unexpected songs in amongst some beloved classics, but are always happy to cater to what the audience want. Ultimately we just want you to have a great time with us!

The Greater Good was formed in 2022 after Dave and Charmain met in 2021 whilst both working as deps (cover musicians) for a soul band. At the time they were both in other bands, but as fate would have it 12 months later they both had amicably parted ways with their respective bands and felt that there was a gap in the market for a quality acoustic duo that would be just at home in a cozy corner of a pub as they would entertaining wedding guests or playing to a festival crowd.
Through carefully selected songs and boosting our sound with a loop pedal to create something a bit different, we have had fantastic feedback from audiences and venues alike, and this means that we now have regular gigs in some of the areas best bars and venues as well as lots of regular enquiries for weddings, festivals and private parties.

Here’s a little bit more about us:

Charmain

Charmain has been singing for nearly as long as she has been able to talk!
From being dragged up to sing the solo at every school event going, through to being repeatedly told to “SHUT UP” by her little brother when she would sing Alanis Morrisette all day every day in her teens, music has always been a huge passion.
At the age of 17, Charmain started singing with function bands ‘The Make Me Smile Band’ and then ‘Sonic Fusion’ who she sang with for a whopping 17 years, and during that time supported Southwest treasures, The Wurzels and duetted with Grammy Award winner, Joss Stone.
Although she doesn’t have any music qualifications, she did get a gold star for playing Little Donkey on the recorder particularly well at the age of 8 and has now expended into playing the tambourine and kazoo…..and if Dave let’s her, maybe a cowbell too!
Sadly, Dave isn’t an accomplished recorder player. If he offers to play London’s Burning please smile, nod and then run in the opposite direction.
However, he has been playing guitar since he was 15 and attended the ACM when he was 18.
This led to him playing with the likes of Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Reef and Skunk Anansie.
Since then he has played for a wide variety of artists and bands across the country at various festivals and events, including playing at the iconic Royal Albert Hall.
