Make Your Next Project Sing With The Right Music…
Do you need music or post-production audio for your next video or podcast? The right sound contributes greatly to audience perception of value toward your project. Let’s tailor-make and differentiate!
I’m a composer, arranger, singer and keyboardist having produced music for video, stage plays, performers and producers. Here’s a sample of what I can do.

I do covers as well. Check out these highlights from a Motown Revue I put together:

Phil Donaldson Bio
Phil Donaldson is a Fort Collins musician who fuses R&B, Pop, Rock, Funk and Jazz to blend the soul of Classic Motown with the inventiveness of David Bowie. He is a singer, keyboardist, composer, arranger and producer aiming at the human heart to create memorable musical experiences. A passionate musician, Phil believes in the power of music to entertain, comfort, heal and inspire. From house concerts to the concert stage, Phil brings a sense of conscious, creative fun to performances.
Growing up in Los Angeles, Phil was exposed to a wide range of music. Upon hearing Stevie Wonder’s “Music Of My Mind” album, he was awakened to the world of synthesizers and embraced the singer/songwriter/producer aesthetic. The work of Todd Rundgren and Brian Eno further inspired him to explore the Musical Craftsman path. Phil’s musical journey began at the Interlochen Arts Academy and continued at the McGill University electronic music studio where he learned how to use classic analog synthesizers to build sonic environments. He moved to New York City to perform in various appointments that include bands and theater productions. Phil has also composed and arranged for theater, video and church worship services.
Phil is the host of “On The One“, a music-themed podcast for musicians and music lovers.
Phil has also taught music technology classes at two NYC housing project community centers — Rutgers Houses (Lower Manhattan) and Van Dyke Houses (Brooklyn).
The courses began with introducing the students to GarageBand to create ringtones, then moved on to learning how to produce a project in ProTools Lite. To document the progress of each class, he built and maintained two microsites.
Here’s a song from one of the classes:
