ABOUT THE ARTIST
A versatile vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Donny was born and raised in Prince Albert, Sask. He spent 12 years touring the world with renowned country music great Neal Mccoy, during which time he recorded on multi-platinum-selling albums, played on numerous TV shows, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and took part in performances on the famed Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. In addition to Neal Mccoy, Donny has shared the stage with many other country music icons, such as Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, Tim Mcgraw, Shania Twain and Reba Mcentire, to name a few.
After starting his solo career in 2003, Donny has garnered more than 100 nominations at seven major award shows, which include three Juno nominations—one in 2012 for Aboriginal Recording of the Year on the strength of his album To Whom It May Concern. He received his first U.S. nomination as a solo artist for Best Country CD at the 2014 Native American Music Awards. His latest CD Bring It On is the only CD to be placed in a 100-year time capsule at the Regina Legislative Building, thanks to his song, ”Deep in the Heart of Saskatchewan.“
