A month after turning 17, Donivan Berube left home and disassociated himself from the church of Jehovah’s Witnesses, thus saying goodbye to his entire family and all of his friends, forever. Then he took off to travel the continent and live out of a tent, releasing albums on small labels as "Blessed Feathers." In the time since, he’s worked as an English teacher in Huaycán, Peru, a librarian in Big Sur, California, a luthier in Flagstaff, Arizona, and ridden his single-speed bicycle across the country.

Aside from touring the US, Canada, & Europe with bands like Father John Misty, Youth Lagoon, and the Cave Singers, his 2014 album “Order of the Arrow” was featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, and his 2015 album “There Will Be No Sad Tomorrow” was released by Vinyl Me, Please. But after the dissolution of his marriage he found himself at the end of the road, alone, having lost everyone.


Sometimes I laugh so hard that it makes me cry
Sometimes I feel so happy that I could die

I don't want to go outside
I don't want to run away
I just want to stay right here with you all goddamn day

We could sleep in the yard
It would feel just like sleeping inside
We could sleep in the car
It would feel just like sleeping inside
We could sleep on the floor
It would feel just like sleeping outside
We could sleep on the porch
And it would feel just like sleeping anywhere at all

Oh honey
Don't tell me it's over
Don't tell me the night is over

Please don't fall asleep just yet
'Cause I still need you
Yes I could use you sometimes too
