Best in his own words…
I started my musical journey in 2004 after acquiring my first harmonica. I quickly fell in love with the instrument and began trying to emulate the riffs of Kim Wilson, Charlie Musselwhite and Ronnie Shellist. I put out an ad on Musolist where I met Calgary musicians Colin Braithwaite and Jonas Claesson. We would go on to form the Calgary Blueshounds, a six piece blues band which had a bit of local success and endured several member changes before disbanding in 2010. Colin and I would go on to head a few more projects including MMI and Soulshine before COVID hit in 2020.
After COVID decimated the local Calgary jam scene, I decided to step back from live performance and concentrate on a new solo recording project called BluesmanDon (a nickname given to me by Colin Braithwaite). The result is a collection of original music, a fusion of blues, folk and rock, completely written, performed and recorded by myself. Work Hard, Blues Hard!
