I want to feel good about what I’m doing. With over nine years as a full time musician, I’ve come to understand that music is a business and there are certain freedoms that commercially successful artists have to give up. I don’t want to give up anything. I want to write songs that will have a positive impact on our young people. I want to work with musicians who are also great people. I want to perform in places where I’m needed. I want to have conversations with people from every walk of life. I want to sing from my heart. I want to make the world a better place. I also want to win a JUNO. ;)
Don’s first four albums generated nine national and international awards, as well as a Juno nomination in 2013.
