linois is prepping Safflower - his fourth solo album for release this Fall. The album’s nine tracks were completed one at a time and released on the Internet each month since January. With this release the artist has given birth to a project that is both experimental and extraordinary in its approach... Donivan Berube from Blessed Feathers has quite the story. The month after he turned 17, he left home and disassociated himself from the church of Jehovah’s Witnesses, which meant saying goodbye to his entire family and all of his friends forever. Then he took off with his dream girl (now wife) to travel the continent and live out of a tent. All of that life experience finds it way to his new album There Will Be No Sad Tomorrow. The result is a compelling and rootsy tale that is one part traveling music and one part biography that is a blessing to our ears and a testament to the triumph of one man’s human spirit... See ya next month! For articles & event previews visit CD / DVD Reviews • Music News Feature Articles & More! 2015 - ISSUE 10 85
