Blessed Feathers "Order of the Arrow"

In 2009 Jacquelyn Beaupre and Donivan Breube make Blessed Feathers a "thing." Shortly after in the summer of 2010 they book a few shows in small Wisconsin clubs with bands like Youth Lagoon and Phosphorescent before releasing a a limited vinyl release of bedroom laptop recordings on a small Wisconsin boutique label. Soon after they quit their jobs to take on a four-week tour with Mount Moriah and the Cave Singers.  

In the summer of 2013 the duo regrouped in upstate New York to record their first full length studio LP with producer Kevin McMahon who has worked with the likes of the Walkmen and Real Estate. Doug Keith (Sharon Van Etten) also makes his way onto the album. Drawing from "polyhythmic influences of 1960's" along with funk/blues and two weeks of recording, the album was done and they were back on the road for a six-week national tour. With all the immediate praise it's not hard to see why they landed as number one on lists such as Paste Magazines "10 Wisconsin Bands You Should Listen To Now."

Order of the Arrow, their latest release is available for purchase now, along with tour dates on their site Blessed
