Born in Aberdeen but settled in London, Donna’s music career has spanned the last 3 decades in a variety of guises. Although she grew up steeped in the music of Bert Jansch, Joni Mitchell, Leo Kotke and Nick Drake, her eclectic tastes have meant that she has toured the UK, Europe and Japan in a variety of guises.
Her first Solo CD ‘Thinking of You’ was released in 2002 to critical acclaim and Donna has managed to tap into the complexities of music making, marriage, and motherhood in her later work, with these varied life events into a wonderful collection of songs that are always highly relatable and often heart wrenchingly poignant.
There’s something about being in front of an audience that drives Donna to share her innermost thoughts and feelings on stage – “I feel compelled to connect on a personal level with my audience which affords them the freedom to laugh and occasionally cry along with my tales and songs of sorrow and joy.
Donna is currently recording a new album which will be ready for release early in 2023. She plans to get back out on tour, bringing her unique songs and stories to all corners of the UK and beyond.
