Hailing from the wide open prairies of north eastern Saskatchewan where the CN and CP Railways cross, comes the music and history of Duff MacDonald. Duff was raised on an acerage outside of Saskatoon. He started singing in church at a very young age and quickly picked up the guitar by age 14. He was soon writing songs and performing in a Pop Gospel group named "Just Friends" for most of his teenage years. Not long after graduation Duff attended Dickinson State College in North Dakota on a Full Scholarship to study Opera. After realizing this wasn't his calling he relocated to Vancouver and began writing and recording with local artists while also playing gigs in Vancouver's coffee houses. He ended up on a compilation CD entitled Desolation Sound. Produced by local Craig Arnatt. After a few years of Vancouver he auditioned for a musical coming to Toronto called "Les Miserables". Having no idea what he was in for, he went in and got the job. After 2 years of being in the 1st Canadian Company and touring back to Vancouver, he found himself back in the mountains again, writing and recording. He then worked for over 15 years in theatre all across Canada and Ontario playing such roles as "Hank Williams, The Show He Never Gave" and The Plant Voice in "Little Shop of Horrors" After years of Film/TV acting gigs and television commercials, Duff has come back to his music and Toronto and is ready to introduce the world to his wide range of influences and versatility.
"I've worked with some amazing talent and been influenced by so many great artists and songwriters, only now do I feel I have the life experience and history, to make some great music and be the true artist my life has served up. I am ready and I hope my music reflects that."
