Donna Lewis

Born:

Born and raised in the Welsh city of Cardiff, Donna was classically trained at the Welsh College of Music and Drama, majoring in flute and piano. She first began performing in local bands to develop her singing and songwriting talents. By 1990, she was working solo (piano/vocal) in piano bars across Britain and Europe. She had also invested in her own home multi-track studio and produced a string of demos. It was at the end of 1993 that this material came to the attention of Atlantic Records and so impressed Chairman Doug Morris that he flew her out to New York to meet her personally - and offered her a recording deal on the spot! Her debut album - ‘Now in a Minute’ - was released in 1996 to universal acclaim

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
