With a career that encompasses 5 GRAMMY Awards, chart successes, as well as collaborations with some of the world’s most prominent artists, Michael McDonald remains an enduring force in popular music. Hailing from St. Louis, McDonald arrived in Los Angeles in the early 1970s, honing his talents as a studio musician before becoming an integral part of Steely Dan. In the mid-’70s he joined the Doobie Brothers as singer, keyboardist and songwriter. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s McDonald’s solo career took off with a string of hits including “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near),” “Sweet Freedom,” “On My Own” (with Patti LaBelle) and the GRAMMY-winning James Ingram duet “Yah Mo B There,” plus he co-wrote the Van Halen hit “I’ll Wait.” McDonald has performed with Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill and Grizzly Bear.
McDonald’s forthcoming album, Wide Open (out September 15 via BMG), finds him collaborating with Warren Haynes, Robben Ford, Marcus Miller and Branford Marsalis. McDonald continues to tour extensively as a solo artist, with a lengthy run of summer and fall tour dates planned with Kenny Loggins and Boz Scaggs.
