Producer & Musician
In an ever-changing and diverse environment such as the music industry, Donnie’s career has been as unique & eclectic as the immense portfolio of songs he has written, performed and produced. Providing audiences with a voice and sound that is soulful, funky & always on point, Sundal creates an infectious blend of energy and enthusiasm that is easily spread throughout the stage and audience regardless of the venue.
After attending Berklee College of Music, Donnie immediately began touring throughout the U.S. and Canada - eventually settling in Destin, Fla., where he opened Neptone Recording Studio; a full-service music recording & production facility. Upon the establishment of Neptone, Sundal began his current collaboration, Boukou Groove, with New Orleans guitar luminary Derwin “Big D” Perkins. While on tour, sharing stages with the likes of Sam Bush, Col. Bruce Hampton & Nigel Hall, Donnie caught the ear of Moog Music and gained an endorsement in 2010.
Currently, Sundal spends the majority of his time as Co-Owner and Producer at Neptone Recording Studio and touring the U.S. and Japan in support of Boukou Groove’s LP's "A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup.” & "Let The Groove Ride".
