I am a guitarist working mainly in London, Essex and the South East of the UK. I have worked professionally since 2007 and my guitar parts appear on many recordings worldwide. In 2013 I recorded many of the guitars for Bibi Zhou’s Unlock album (Best Worldwide Artist at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards).
In 2015 I appeared alongside Brent Mason on a full length album by Estonian rockers Revolver. In 2018 I joined the award-winning Tim Manford on guitars for UK AOR act Dante Fox. We are playing a number of festival shows culminating in Hard Rock Hell VIII before commencing work on the band’s seventh album.
In 2020 I am collaborating on a full-length original album alongside drummer Scott Higham (Pendragon, Samson) and bass guitarist Seth Govan (Guthrie Govan, Robben Ford, Carl Palmer). This is slated for a 2021 release.
Here is a selection of releases featuring my playing.
Here is a compilation of some of the music I have been lucky enough to play on!
“I’ve worked with Don for a few years now and he is truly an incredible guitarist and singer. His attention to detail is second to none in all areas of his work. A true professional who has all the attributes you need from a pro musician. A great attitude, reliable with an amazing talent, top quality equipment and most of all a great guy to hang with! I would recommend Don for any project, album, tour or gig.”Scott Higham – Professional Drummer/Singer

Sounds SUPER good. I’m going to redo my stuff for sure now. That’s what I mean – your playing is really inspiring and gives the songs a totally new level which pushes me just to the right direction.
Really cool sound and superb playing.Martin Saaremagi – Revolver online session
