“BLUE-EYED SOUL” VOCALIST AND MUSICIAN, MICHAEL MCDONALD HITS THE STAGE

Widely recognized for his distinct soulful vocals, Michael McDonald is often imitated, but never duplicated. Debuting his jazz and R&B sound with the Doobie Brothers, McDonald released Grammy-winning record “What a Fool Believes,” before launching his solo career. His hit song, “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time Your Near)” peaked on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, R&B, and Adult Contemporary Charts. McDonald has also collaborated with a number of artists, including Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Toto, Kenny Loggins, and Christopher Cross. He added his own style to renditions of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and others from the Motown era in his ultimate collection, Motown. Michael McDonald can also be heard featured in records with artists like Grizzly Bear and Thundercat.

Fans who have wanted to hear his voice all by itself have had to bide their time- year by year- waiting for McDonald to reclaim a solo spotlight. Enter Wide Open, McDonald’s first new album in nine years and his first set of all-original material since 2000. Wide Open marks a return to fiercer and fresher band arrangements than he has ever created before.
