Biography:
Don Bonn is one of the foundation artist of the german reggae scene. 1987 he started out singing lead vocals in a band called One Tribe. The following 19 years, Don and his group gained a lot of experience and (international) succes. Including support performances and touring for/with artists like The Wailers(original line up), Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Pato Banton, Macka B Earl 16, Misty In Roots or Maceo Parker.

A video shoot in Cannes at the film festivals in 1996 as well as a tour in Aruba (Carebean ABC-Isles) are further good memories of One Tribe times.
However One Tribe dissolved in the year 2005 - the year Don started out his solo career. 2008 it is still reggae but this time Don enters new territories writing and singing german lyrics for the first time. The album "Meine Sachen" sold 3.000 copies within two years and gave Don Bonn the possibility to set his foot back into the scene.

Now, five years since the first and last solo release, Don is stepping back to his musical roots and sings in english again.
The first single, "Out Of The Jungle" was featured in germany's no.1 TV crime series "Tatort" and slingshots Don Bonn back into the scene.

In 2014, Don Bonn released "Live Some Life" produced and distributed by Irievibration Records. "Live Some Life" is a Track of the "Village Riddim Selection" by Irievibration Records.
There are two EP-Releases in the making. Both for this year. The first EP is "A Voice To Sing" and is available in all common online stores as usual. This production is a cooperation between Mista Martin, Guido Craveiro and Don Bonn. Distributed by Freetime Records.

Don works with producers like Guido Craveiro (Delé, Seeed), Mista Martin (Yah Meek, Uwe Banton, Singing U) and film score musicians Michael Klaukien and Andreas Lonardoni.
Furthermore Don appears not just as a singer but produces a good half of the tracks by himself. The musical direction of the upcomming productions can be described as contemporary roots reggae. Including a whole heap of earworm tunes - just as usual.
