Don currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
His unique style of playing incorporates fingerpicking with simultaneous percussion on the soundboard to create a wall of sound.
He is often referred to as sounding like a four piece band. Don's music is his own unique weave of deeply textured melody and story.
Lyrical and compelling, his original songs are notes of exploration - some passionate and haunting, some hard-driven, others light and teasing.
In quiet pieces or pushing right to the edge, Don's phenomenal fingerstyle playing and rich voice captivate.
