Donovan Quinn has been surrounded by music all of his life. Quinn is the son of Dave Carter, bassist and vocalist for legendary 60’s psychedelic group Country Weather, and has been writing songs from an early age. In 2001 Quinn entered CDR cult consciousness as ½ of the San Franciscan duo The Skygreen Leopards. Since then he’s released several records with the SGL’s and a few home recorded affairs from his youth (under the Verdure banner), but had refrained from issuing any of his stockpile of solo material. The self-imposed silence finally ended in late ‘07 when Soft Abuse, via sub-label Puissant, excavated October Lanterns, a mini album of dark, woodsy, melancholia recorded and shelved five years prior (for reasons long since forgotten).
