Michael McDonald remains an enduring force in popular music. "Within seconds of McDonald’s new song, "Find It In Your Heart," your heart will be overjoyed. The opening notes call up immediate memories of some of his much-beloved Doobie Brothers classics." - NPR

In the early 1970s, McDonald traveled from St. Louis to Los Angeles to focus his talents on being a studio musician before becoming an integral part of Steely Dan. He was invited to join the Doobie Brothers in the mid-'70s as the band redefined their sound with McDonald serving as a singer, keyboardist and songwriter on such Top 40 singles as “Takin’ It To The Streets,” “Minute By Minute” and "What A Fool Believes."

Throughout the '80s and '90s McDonald's solo career took off with a string of hits including

"I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)," "Sweet Freedom," "On My Own" (with Patti LaBelle) and the Grammy-winning James Ingram duet "Yah Mo B There," plus he co-wrote the Van Halen hit "I'll Wait."

McDonald has performed with a who’s-who of critically acclaimed artists across a number of genres, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill and Grizzly Bear.

McDonald's deep, soulful voice is recognizable with so much depth. Fans have waited 9 years for the release of a new album, Wide Open with a return to that classic emotional urgency alongside a fiercer and fresher band than he’s ever created before. “He is such a stark example of staying honest and open in your music.” - Thundercat
