Mourning Dove receives ‘Checkie’ for Best Local Release of 2014
The Greenville Journal rated Mourning Dove’s “Chrysalis” as the best local release of 2014!
Singer/songwriter Niel Brooks has been playing in and around the Upstate for years, but the duo he’s formed with singer Lisa Stubbs might be his best move yet. “Chrysalis” is a hushed, immaculately produced, impressionistic EP that is almost more of a long tone poem than a collection of songs. Stubbs’ ethereal voice and unique lyrical approach (more like a series of photographs than a narrative) is spellbinding, and Brooks frames her performances perfectly.
