Luba, a Canadian musician of Ukrainian descent, attained non-trivial success in Canada during the 1980s as a pop musician with a New Wave background. “Storm Before the Calm” was track 9 off of her 1984 album Secrets and Sins, and one of her half-dozen most memorable singles.
For me, this song is filled with associations of childhood, of listening to songs produced by the first generation of CanCon artists being played over the radio. These are good associations, let me state clearly. They’re feelings of comfort.
