Hometown: Winnipeg, Manitoba
Don Amero is a powerful stylist, JUNO Award nominee and engaging storyteller whose latest single, “Falling Shouldn’t Feel That Way,” is giving genuine music fans a taste of the real deal and glimpse into his heart to be an artist for change.
With silky vocals, a lovable stage presence and a soulful sound that’s been likened to Ed Sheeran, John Mayer and Jack Johnson, Don brings his own brand of percussion‐style guitar play and delightful approachability to every corporate function, gig and festival he plays.
A true musical talent without the rock-star attitude, Don is an artist first whose approach to his craft is rewarded every day with accolades like “that voice is amazing,” “you’ve got a voice like silk,” and “I’m blown away by your ability.”
Making beautiful music across five albums, including his latest, Refined, Don impresses wherever he goes with his messages of encouragement, positivity and beauty – and his desire to get out and chat with fans no matter what the venue.
Don’s talent, ambition and determination have also made him an inspiration to Aboriginal youth.
