Artists Grow and evolve. That's just what they do. And after recording two songs with Grammy winning producer Damon Elliott In Los Angeles, this artist has continued to do just that. 

This charted Top 40 Recording Artist, and member of The Recording Academy's fifth commercial album "Swim In Your Skin" is now available on streaming sites everywhere! Dondi’s previous work has produced four Global Music Awards. So, hold on to your seats. Songs on this album are extremely slick, sexy and soulful, in the vain of artists like Kem, Gregory Porter, Jahiem and the like.

Two of his previous albums "Give Me Your Love" and "Imagine That" produced singles landing at #32, #43 and #44 respectfully on the FMQB Charts.

Dondi remains the long-time front man for Philadelphia's premier event band, "JellyRoll". After eighteen years at the helm of this very sought-after cover, and sometimes, original, twelve-piece unit, he has thrown his hat in the ring as a songwriter/producer of his own work.

As a very seasoned performer and experienced vocalist, he has worked venues from Madison Square Garden to our nations White house. Dondi possesses an extremely strong stage presence, and the ability to put a large crowd in the palm of his hands, is legendary, in and around the Philadelphia region.

 Being a live performer by nature and trade, he writes and produces his songs as if they were going to be played by a live band tomorrow night, at an intimate New York night club.

He composes solid melodies and strong hooks in all genres, but his real love is R&B/Soul and Adult contemporary music of the old school variety but including new elements and lyrics relevant to today.
