Donn T LIVE on FLAVAS of FUNK with DJ Dezi Dee // Thursday, Oct 12 at 6PM EST
Donn T is an eclectic singer, songwriter, producer, musician, and with the launch of Dtone Victorious in 2014, label owner. Hailing from Philadelphia and coming from a storied musical lineage, she is a unique talent in her own right. Her debut album, 2010’s “Kaleidoscopic,” received international acclaim and led to appearances with a diverse array of artists, such as Amy Winehouse, Marsha Ambrosius, Sharon Jones, John Legend, Esperanza Spalding, Ceelo Green, Derrick Hodge, Santigold, Antibalas, David Byrne and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, to name a few.
On her follow up, 2015’s “Flight of The Donn T” album, she shares co-production credit with her husband Jake Morelli, a guitarist/producer. The buzz around that album got the attention of CBS and The Grammys, who in 2016 highlighted Donn T as an Artist of Tomorrow. “Waiting”, a standout track on “Flight Of The Donn T,” can be heard in the BET film “I Will Follow,” which was helmed by award winning director Ava Duvernay (“Selma”). Donn T’s single “Midnight” appears in “With This Ring,” a Lifetime network movie directed by Nzingha Stewart. The film co-stars Regina Hall, Jill Scott and Eve.
Another highlight from Flight Of The Donn T is “Last Breath”, remixed by her brother Questlove, who is also featured in the song’s video. Donn T has also racked up songwriting credits, including, “I Am Music” by Common featuring Jill Scott. Several of Donn T’s other songs have appeared in various forms of visual media, including, the Showtime crime series Street Time, and ads for the wireless audio product Sonos.
Donn T has recently expanded her creative wings with a new book titled: the YA anthology “Behind The Song”, along with a musical companion to the book, a new single called “Clear”. The single features Philly’s Chill Moody produced by Daru Jones (Jack White, Talib Kweli) and Ray Angry(John Legend, Esperanza Spalding). “Clear” is available right now, on Itunes
