Jonas Bonnetta lost his father at a young age. Kalle Mattson lost his mum at a young age. Both dealt with their respective losses by way of an album. The honest emotional reckoning on their respective records brought them solace and accolades. Both have new albums. Jonas Bonnetta aka Evening Hymns has released Quiet Energies on Outside and Mattson has released Avalanche on Home Music. Both are superb and mark a coming of age for two new bright singer/songwriters. They perform together at a show Nov. 19 in Peterborough at the Gordon Best.
