BIO

Observer. Igniter. Enigmatic. Singer-songwriter. Label owner. Producer. Clarifier. Peruser. Witster. Sister. Muse to the mister. Ma+daughter. Tall drink o' water.That is innovator Donn T .

She originally hails from Philadelphia and comes from a storied musical lineage (she's Questlove's sister). The quintessential independent artist and do-it-yourselfer added label owner to her list of accomplishments, when she launched D-tone Victorious in 2014. Her debut album, 2010's Kaleidoscopic, received international acclaim and led to stints performing with a diverse array of artists, including Amy Winehouse, Marsha Ambrosius, Sharon Jones, John Legend, Esperanza Spalding, Ceelo Green, Santigold, Antibalas, The RootsDavid Byrne (Talking Heads) and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump to name a few.

On her follow up, 2015’s Flight of The Donn T album, she shares co-production credit with her husband Jake Morelli, a guitarist/producer. The buzz around that album got the attention of CBS and The Grammys who in 2016 highlighted Donn T as an Artist of Tomorrow.

"Waiting", a standout track on Flight Of The Donn T, can be heard in the BET film I Will Follow, which was helmed by award-winning director Ava Duvernay (Selma). Donn T's single "Midnight" appears in With This Ring, a Lifetime network movie directed by Nzingha Stewart. The film co-stars Regina Hall, Jill Scott and Eve. Donn T has also racked up songwriting credits, including "I Am Music" by Common featuring Jill Scott, while several of Donn T’s other songs have appeared in various forms of visual media, including the Showtime crime series Street Time, and in ads for the wireless audio product Sonos.

Donn T made her literary debut in the much anticipated anthology, Behind The Song (Sourcebooks) edited by K.M. Walton (Sept '17) and released its companion piece "Clear", a single ft Philly's Chill Moody. The song is produced by Daru  Jones (Jack  White, Talib  Kweli) and Ray  Angry (Christina  Aguilera,D'Angelo) and is available on Itunes.

Very certain that one song together was not enough, Donn T & Chill Moody decided to form &More, their new band, which launched at The  Roots  Jam  Session (Gramercy, NYC) during Grammy Week (2018). &More's debut single, "My Own Light" arrives Feb 23. The single, a D-tone  Victorious/nicethingsMUSIC collaboration is available on all online platforms. &More's debut album arrives later this year.
