The Lone Wolf of Country Music...

It's been over a decade since Donald Benjamin first emerged on the Michigan music scene. In that time, he has all but secured his place in the annals of Michigan music history. The multiple award- winning songwriter and former WIOG Mid- Michigan Idol semi- finalist, shattered all expectations, with his 2002 debut, "Destination Unknown." Its title track reached international radio, garnering him immediate status as an up-and-coming songwriting talent.

After a rigorous solo touring schedule, from 2002-2012, culminating with several awards, including "Best Blues Songwriter," "Best Male Blues Vocalist," and Sevox Radio naming his demo for the song "Used To" their 2012 "Song of the Year," he has since gone on to further success, with the highly-anticipated solo effort, "Reborn." A unique throwback to the era of traditional songwriting, "Reborn" chronicles his true musicianship and songwriting talent, unchained from the constraints of industry "norms." With minimal production and maximum effort, "Reborn" proves to be an old-school take on new-school ideas.

Now a proud member of the Country Music Association (CMA), Donald is touring, nationally, with his new, stellar group. Featuring award-nominated instrumentalist and childhood friend, Ronnie James, and two of Michigan's best guitarists, Jason Culhane and Curt Cornell, they have taken the nation by storm and are becoming a much sought-after musical force.
