The DoneFors in February and Onward
Our chemically modified momma nature is thawing Toronto’s curbside glaciers. It almost feels like spring cleaning time. Readying for things anew. Time to take on a different world – fresh challenges vs. fresh perspectives. 2011 may have reaffirmed to the world that anything is possible with hard work, conviction and support of like-minded individuals. Anything is possible.

The DoneFors’ Album #2
In our humble corner of the world, The DoneFors are working towards a common goal to create good music. We’re almost at the end of the recording process for album #2. three more pushes, and we’ll birth this lovely baby into the arms of the world – to be loved to death, scrutinized to death, or straight up forsaken. It is impossible to make accurate predictions in this funny monkey business anymore. But we can guarantee you that we think this is good music. And we’re very proud of our baby. Produced entirely by The DoneFors, mixed by the virtuosic Michael Phillip Wojewoda, mastered by the acclaimed Joao Carvalho, with engineering prowess of Jeremy Darby and Andrew Heppner (Cantebury Music Company), and Brian Lowe, Rich Bradly and Brian Lahaie (Joao Carvalho Mastering) – this album has been coddled by many capable and loving hands. Imagine Introducing Happiness + Graceland + Hail to the Thief + Darkside of the Moon + Reptillian + Houses of the Holy + Diamond Life + Raising Sand + Court and Spark + All of My Lakes Lay Frozen Over + Key Principles + Lush Life Below the Poverty Line + Shine Your Face + The Great Prophecy of a Small Man. Details are coming soon on how you can pre-order a copy of this yet-to-be-named album. Stay tuned.

Janine Stoll and Paul MacDougall of The DoneFors are thrilled to be embarking on a project of significant importance, both personally and historically. This spring Janine and Paul will be spending a month abroad to retrace a family history during WWII. This history will inspire the creation of a body of musical work to later be recorded, performed and toured, involving various artistic disciplines. Janine and Paul would like to thank Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council for their generous support of this fledgling project – which promises to be a work of great intrigue once completed.
Stay warm. Kiss your lover. Kiss a stranger.
