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.“
