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.
Sons of Legend is influenced heavily by the blues, as well as hard rock/metal, southern rock and outlaw country, thanks to The Legend, Harley Sr. The combination of these influences as well as the diversity of the musicians that make up Sons of Legend produces a raucous yet fluent merging of those styles into something uniquely called Sons of Legend.
The Chris Canas Band is one of Michigan’s leading bands for live music. With their diverse mix of Blues, Funk, and Soul they are always well equipped to bring the party wherever they go. With heart-wrenching vocals, pulse pounding rhythms, and an electric energy that can be felt in the air.
Jazz vocalist and songwriter Eva Schubert is a fresh new voice, whose sound blends seamlessly with the classic style of jazz greats like Helen Mirrell, Peggy Lee, and Nat King Cole. A native of Vancouver, Canada, she follows a distinguished line of female jazz vocalists like Diana Krall coming from Canada’s west coast.
After picking up his first guitar 30 years ago, Travis is keyed into his own sound as an American blues rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Over the years he has honed his style by playing in a variety of bands and solo projects but always found his home planted deep in the roots of the blues and retro-rock genres.
You can’t predict Liz Jones. Modest in name and image, she shocks first timers with an incomparable and sailing raw voice that swings from soothing the mind to raising the dead. She keeps them on side with unruly songwriting and a sense of intrigue and freedom from waving goodbye to genre. Each tune is simply taken where it needs to go.
Magnolia Moon is a Macon-based band with roots running all the way down to the coast of Mississippi where Zack Horton (Vocals/Guitar) and brother Jesse Horton (Drums) were born and raised. Another set of brothers, Jonathan Crowell (Bass) and Christopher Crowell (Guitar), join the Hortons, in completing the dynamic four-piece band.
Steinar Ytrehus is a guitarist and recording artist from Norway. He started out playing the guitar when he was 15 years old, and soon after he started recording music on his Tascam 4track Tape recorder. Some of his songs were even used on several Norwegian TV shows. The music is a mix of blues, rock, country, jazz and Americana.
Bert Deivert is one of a handful of professional roots blues mandolinists in the world today, but he is also a renowned singer/songwriter and guitarist in the folk and blues world. Deivert’s albums have had rave reviews all over the world. He is currently writing original songs for the next one, his 15th album.
Kari’s debut album, Wild is the Wind, arranged and produced by four-time Grammy nominee, Shelly Berg, is a collection of contemporary songs and jazz standards. Her second album entitled If, When You Go, will be released in September, 2022.

“If I want a sound, I usually feel better if I’ve chased it and killed it, skinned it and cooked it. Most things you can get with a button nowadays. So if I was trying for a certain drum sound, my engineer would say: “Oh, for Christ’s sake, why are we wasting our...
What was it about Waters, and that generation of bluesmen, that fascinated him so much? Keith shakes his head."I don't know. It just struck the chord in here somewhere. You heard it and all the breath left your body and you were...anything to be able to approach that....
The blues always sounded more like “the real thing” than anything else. It’s not like I automatically said, “This is cooler than this,” or “This has more emotion.” When I heard it, it slayed me! There was just not a question.
