Newfoundland based folk-roots duo, Fortunate Ones features the musical talents of Andrew James O’Brien and Catherine Allen. The duo released their debut album, “The Bliss” on February 10th, which was produced by multi-ECMA winner Daniel Ledwell and recorded in Nova Scotia and released by JUNO Award winning songwriter, Rose Cousins’ label, Old Farm Pony Records.
