Since the release of his acclaimed self-titled debut, musician Declan O’Donovan has been combining strikingly original songwriting with exceptional musicianship and character, and has quickly become recognized as one of the Yukon’s most innovative and captivating artists. Following a winter and spring spent in Montreal, Declan has completed his sophomore record ‘Broken Sky’, recorded with Juno-award winning producer Jean Massicotte (Patrick Watson, Lhasa, Alejandra Ribera, Adam Cohen) at Studio Masterkut. Joining Declan on the record are some of Montreal’s most talented and creative musicians, including members of The Barr Brothers, Patrick Watson and Bell Orchestre. The final result is a strong balance between the craft of roots and folk music, and the sensibilities of a more contemporary and alternative sound. Lead by an unmistakable voice, Broken Sky finds O’Donovan expanding his range both as a vocalist and as a songwriter.
