Donald Benjamin

In the course of nearly two decades, mid-Michigan’s musical "lone wolf," multiple award-winning songwriter Donald Benjamin, has had more than his share of career highlights. He has, since reaching international airwaves with his 2002 debut single, “Destination Unknown,” reached unprecedented heights, as a solo artist and with his new trio, Less Than Ordinary, including several Review Music Awards, two Northeast Michigan Music Awards, Sevox Radio’s “Song of the Year” for his single, “Used To,” “Pick Hit” honors from the now-defunct Online Indie music web ‘zine and over 60 various award nominations. All the while, he has brought his lyrically-intense and soulful live show to all corners of the state, including sold-out, standing-room only performances in major metropolitan areas.

Donald was, recently, inducted as a member of the Country Music Association (CMA) and is in the midst of a rigorous national touring schedule. His latest release, "Last Man Standing," has reached #24 on the independent music charts and was the #65 most popular song of 2015 on Country Blast Radio. [+]
