Bio

Donna Lynn Davis. Teenager playing on Main Street during the Round-up in her Pendleton home town. Eight years on the coast, managing the Front Office at Salishan Lodge. Eight Years as Resident Manager of the Heathman Hotel. Currently admissions counselor at Marylhurst University. Singing and songwriting always along for the ride, sometimes relegated to the cracks of her professional life.

Now it’s 2011 and the release of the third DonnaLynn CD, Butterfly Effect, moves her singing and songwriting into the forefront. Influenced by many of the folk greats, from Peter, Paul and Mary to Joni Mitchell to Buffy Sainte-Marie, Donna has developed her own style, with a touch of gospel and a hint of country. DonnaLynn is really a duo. The mix includes an unmistakable voice, a passionate heart, crisp acoustic guitar, Terry accompanying, and good friends who like to join in.

Terry’s earlier musical history runs more to Northwest Rock and Roll, garage bands and driving beats. But he always had a place in his heart for folk music and singer-songwriters, going back to Donovan, Dylan, and Lennon-McCartney. When he met Donna, he was immediately drawn to vocal harmonies and accompanying her on bass, Dobro, octave mandolin and lap steel. And dreams of that big Sunn bass amp fell away.
