About Dono

A veteran of the Dallas Club scene, Dono began writing and recording music in the early 80's, after ending the chase of fame and fortune as a professional golfer. Four track cassette to 8-track reel to reel, Lee was the principal songwriter and producer for 3 albums recorded by North Texas-based Christian Rock bands Zuriel and Truth Farm. In 1994 Lee took a hiatus from music in order to be with his family and to work on his day job, which affords the opportunity to record original music.

In the year 2000 Dono was lured out of retirement by his good buddy Dudley and the band Codger ( was formed to perform "Essential Rock and Rock", an eclectic mix of rock, country, pop, and a whole lotta stuff you normally don't hear from a four piece bar band. Of course, as a result, the recording bug finally bit again as Dono's sons became interested and drug him back into recording. The rest is history - Dono hopes you enjoy his music
