Don-E (born Donald McLean, in Brixton, London, England) is a British soul singer, songwriter, musician and producer. Don-E is most well known for his début single, “Love Makes The World Go Round” which reached #18 in the UK Singles Chart in 1992.

    Don-E’s interest in music began when his father, a South London pastor, gave him a home-made guitar for his fifth birthday. After taking an interest in his parents’ collection of gospel and soul, he moved onto funk, reggae, jazz and pop.

    Whilst still only 19, Don-E was signed to Island Records and recorded his debut, Unbreakable, which was released in 1992 shortly after the summer hit, “Love Makes The World Go Round” scaled the international charts. Don-E wrote and produced the album, as well as providing the majority of the instrumentation. UK ‘urban jazz’ guitarist Ronny Jordan played on two of the album tracks.

    Following the lack of chart success of his second recording, Changing Seasons, Don-E left Island Records to focus on writing and production for a number of artists in the UK and US. It’s during this period Don-E was briefly signed to D’Angelo’s record label, along with former Jamiroquai member Stuart Zender, who together recorded an album under the name Azur. Among the tracks, Don-E and Zender recorded “So Cold” with D’Angelo playing the Fender Rhodes parts – the track later featuring officially on Don-E’s Natural.

    Don-E eventually returned to recording as a solo artist, releasing Try This in 2005 through leading black music label, Dome Records. The album features a duet with British R&B peer, Omar.

      Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
      I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance
      from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
      I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
      The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
      for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      content. Please let me know. Many thanks

      Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
      are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because
      I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
      I would be great if you could point me in the
      direction of a good platform.
