Don’s Tunes is about the music. It’s about the sound. It’s about the real thing.

I’ve been collaborating with blues & jazz artists & labels for more than 10 years, helping them reach new audiences through my YouTube Channel, my curated Spotify playlists and the amazing community on my social media pages. My passion is to discover lesser known, but extremely talented musicians and to promote songs with an audiophile sound and authentic emotion.

If you’re an artist or label and want to collaborate with me – check this Page & write me on don@donstunes.com. You can also send me tracks on my SubmitHub profile.
