Taylor James Donskey is a lover and writer of songs. He is known for his work in the Minneapolis/St.Paul music scene as a side-man bassist, music instructor, host and soloist. He works to foster growth & connection through music. His songs tell stories of the everyday folks; stories set in the comfortable American styles of folk, alt-country, rock and indie.
Absorbing the sounds of the many bands he’s played in The Lowland Lakers, Lena Elizabeth, The Gentlemen’s Anti-Temperance League, Barbaro, Donskey has carved a unique spot for himself in the Twin Cities music scene that includes elements of pop, bluegrass, folk and jazz.
His next step is the sophomore album “JoyRide” which literally hits the gas as an exciting ride through the classic rock idioms. When not busy performing his own music or touring, he teaches ukulele, piano, electric bass, upright bass, guitar, songwriting, music theory and voice. “Teaching is my great joy,” he says. “I’ve watched my students grow into far more intelligent creatures than I. I am endlessly excited for what they do next”
Taylor is also the songwriter and creative force behind the group Darling Lily Gave.
