Hi I’m Don... Besides Writing Songs and Poems I love Singing and Recording Music. Our first CD is Called DonSongs and our newest Album. It’s called Living Beings - Climate Control. It took almost a year and a half of Thursdays, but we finally got recording done. I worked with a very talented friend named Marty Splawn on these Projects, who plays all the instruments and composed the music for the songs. Marty played and recorded the music on both Albums, along with Steve Bryan who played the music and did some recording on a few of the songs on the DonSongs Album.
If you would like to purchase a song, I would be very grateful. Just consider it a Donation. Since, All of our Songs are available for Free Download on my web site at donsongs.com . The Living Beings Album, as well as all the songs from my first Album called DonSongs are on my site and you can download them for free there. Download the Album CD Cover images there too, if you want to burn a CD. Living Beings are, Don Bishop and Marty Splawn. There are only two of us, so it would be kind of hard for us to play live right now. But if people like our songs and I can find band members to play Marty’s music, who knows… Marty plays all the instruments and composed the music for the songs. And I wrote all the lyrics, except on Is it True Lord and Healer of the Soul, which were Poems written by Kristina Hensley. She gave them to me and I derived the lyrics, from her Poems. Marty played and recorded the music and recorded my vocals and we mixed and remixed the songs together, except for a couple of little changes I made on my computer after I got them home. Marty and I have worked together since about 1997 on and off. We have done several different styles of music, from 60’s - 70’s - 80’s - 90’s Rock & Roll, to almost Rockabilly to almost Metal;) Well, it was called Metal, before Hard Core, Speed Metal and Grind Core Came out... There are several different Styles, Including a couple of acoustic songs. Our first set of songs are on the DonSongs Album. You can go to DonSongs.com to check them out and download them too. I have really enjoyed our sessions and hope you enjoy the songs we came up with too. Marty has been playing music since he was a teenager and teaches guitar, bass and drum lessons. I am pretty much a late bloomer. I always wanted to write and sing, but I didn’t think I had the talent and thought I was too shy to sing in front of people when I was younger. Now I don’t care, I just want to make music!:) I almost had a real band going back in about 95’. We practiced every week for about 6 months, but we never played out. Everyone got married and busy, so now there’s just no time for them.. got got, got no time:O... I on the other hand have allot of time, and would still love to start a “real band”. Right now though, I’m just really glad to have been able to record these songs and realize some of my dream:) Hope You like our Songs.
