Donivan / About
Born and raised in Tulsa. Actively involved with music and bands for 40yrs.
Played my first gig as a drummer/vocalist in 1970, retired from drumming in 2010; but continue to sing at various venues in the Tulsa area.
As a Songwriter, I write lyrics for orginals of my own, and others. I've been active in the Tulsa area for many years, including radio and television. I have produced many music beds, lyrics and voice work for radio commercials. I also write poems, short stories of which some have been published and are available online.
Currently I have been busy finishing up an autobiography soon to be published.
I'm looking for other seasoned quality musicians to sing with; or to start a new band called "Shades of Grey", after the song by Billy Joel. We would be playing Original compositions, some Covers, Classic Rock, and Blues. I sometimes sing at Kareoke clubs and other venues. My goal is to put together a band that plays music similar to Yes, Kansas, Styx, Foreigner, Journey, and many others. I hope to get a musical career going either with a band or without. I want to also travel the USA on my motorcycle just for grins and giggles.
Recording new songs in my studio, and will upload soon. So, stay tuned in, and turned on.
