Blessed Feathers

This West Bend, Wisconsin, duo began making music when Jacquelyn Beaupre recorded some songs and asked Donivan Berube to help finish them up. Eventually, it turned into a fully collaborative project for the two who work, live, and play together — and boast that, between the two of them, they can play anything. There’s a natural, woodsy feeling in their music, especially on recordings, thanks to their unique recording techniques and honest, optimistic approach. They stopped by the studio to share some songs and talk about giving up the flute and finding it again, not knowing what they’re doing, and how the project got started.

Featured song: “Hey! All You Floridians”

Blessed Feathers’ EP, Peaceful Beasts In An Ocean Of Weeds, is available now.
