Nick Doneff’s sophomore album, The Late August Days, is set for release on November 19.

The nine-song album features collaborations with noteable musicians including Jim Creeggan (Barenaked Ladies), Catherine MacLellan, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), Dave Haskett (Shawn Mendes), Blair Packham (The Jitters), and Aaron Comeau (Skydiggers).

“Their contributions were profound and unique, and they’ve made this album very special to me,” says Doneff.

The Late August Days began as demo recordings in a cottage in Rustico, PEI in the final weeks of 2019. As 2020 began to take its unexpected course, the prospect of taking the project into a traditional recording studio dimmed.

“While sitting on this collection of demos, I determined that the foundations of an album had perhaps already been laid,” remembers Doneff. “So I began developing it at my home in Charlottetown”

The album will launch at Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown on November 19 with a full band (Aaron Comeau, Josh Langille and Sam Langille).
