Connecticut’s Country Podcast – Interview with Donny Van Slee

 

The Road to Nashville, TN

Raised off the west coast of Florida, singer/songwriter Donny Van Slee realized at a young age that music was more than just a passion – it was his life’s art. After graduating high school in 2011, Donny started to perform at local restaurants, tiki huts, and breweries. His music continued to grow, so one morning, he quit his day job and pursued his shows.

In 2018, Donny left his hometown to study at Palmer College of Chiropractic, located in Daytona Beach, Florida where he continued to perform live every weekend. Donny finally discovered Nashville, TN while road tripping from Florida to Colorado to start a chiropractic internship.

After hours of emails and phone calls, the “World-Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge” decided to grant him an audition. So, while Donny was driving back from Colorado to Florida to graduate Chiropractor school, he auditioned and they hired him after performing his first cover song, “Good Direction” by Billy Currington.

He left Nashville the next morning, drove to Florida to receive his doctorate, kissed mom and dad goodbye, and went back Nashville. He was instantly enrolled in “Honky Tonk School” which involved front-man training for Tootsies, Honky Tonk Central, Kid Rocks, and Rippy’s.

During that time, he was blessed to be taught by industry leaders with 20+ years of experience about stage presence, interacting with a crowd, song selection, and much more. One year later, he is a front-man for multiple bands, performing every weekend on main stages and rooftops in Nashville, TN.
