Whitehorse, Yukon’s Declan O’Donovan, who’s touring the country to promote his new alt-roots blues LP, will be in Montreal this weekend.
This blues-, jazz-, rock- and roots-inspired pianist and singer is releasing his debut self-titled solo album, which features his wicked, soulful vocals over his unique blend of genres.
“I don’t consider myself specifically roots or blues, but when you throw in a word like ‘alternative’ in front of that, it gives you some imagination as to what you can use those different genres for,” said O’Donovan.
The tour kicks off at Divan Orange on Oct. 6 and features stops all the way to Vancouver.
Listen in the latest Link Live Session, filmed at old-timey jazz bar Gainzbar. Watch his performance of “Crumble,” off his self-titled LP below.
