Mark Berube : Mississippi Prom

With a small prelude adapted from Bob Dylan, Mark Berube performs “Mississippi Prom” from his album “Russian Dolls”.

“Hard rains fell that thunder rolled/I see that cloud’s still here/it’s keeping the shade damp and cold/need a little sun to appear…/I’m frozen in my kitchen chair/the moment’s holding me/it’s 10:15 on the radio/there’s a school in Mississippi…” This inspired Montreal-born singer-songwriter has tried out a little bit of everything in the world of folk-rock. His particular style? Spicy, jazz- and pop-flavoured compositions. From Manitoba to Swaziland, this globetrotter came back to his Quebec roots by settling once more in Montreal, where he joins up with The Patriotic Few. Nowadays, Berube performs solo, with his gentle voice, songs with highly poetic lyrics. His work undoubtedly speaks of his vast musical culture. You still don’t know who we’re talking about? Discover him in this BRBR clip!
