Formed during lockdown 1 (uk) Sarah Yeo, Donna Marie, Tennessee Twin (Victoria Mills & Geoff Meads) decided to perform an online gig together for fun. This turned into the concept of THE SONGS & STORIES COLLECTIVE. We ran 3 series and 19 online shows that consisted of music, conversation, special musical guests, music managers and radio personalities. The show was very relaxed with the format of 2 songs each with a chosen theme each show. This often meant learning a new cover song and writing an original song. That was the challenge, warts and all, showing the process of how things can come together.

The collective are also working on more original music, due to be released later this year as well as their individual music projects.

A little bit about Donna-Marie

Donna Marie, a singer-songwriter hailing from the North-West of England in a town called Warrington.

Her songwriting style mixes musical genres that have inspired her as a musician. Deeply routed in ‘story telling’ and melodies that stay with you.

As a Musician and Vocalist , Donna is also part of 'Dominic Halpin & The Hurricanes' for the hit theatre show 'A COUNTRY NIGHT IN NASHVILLE' playing across the UK in some of the most prestigious venues like Edinburgh Playhouse, Belfast Waterfront theatre and the Royal Albert Hall.

CLIMBING MOUNTAIN RECORDS is the home of Donna's solo music.

Featuring the debut release ‘BROKEN LOVE’ EP (2015) hit the UK Country iTunes chart reaching number 5. Several singles later and her followers and streams are steadily growing. 

‘ON THE ROAD’ was picked up by popular Spotify curator playlist ‘VERY NEARLY NASHVILLE’ already achieving over 120,000 plays.  BBC introducing has also championed 'ON THE ROAD' as one of the shows producers picks. She's also been nominated for a number of awards including best musician and best country artist.

During the first national Lockdown, Donna released several singles including a rip, roaring duet with Patrick Jordan and her own fresh take on ‘Del Amitri’s NOTHING EVER HAPPENS and is currently working on a new body of work including being part of 'The Songs & Stories Collective' with Sarah Yeo & Tennessee Twin. 

Her backing vocals have featured on many other artists music including British country artists Stuart Landon O'Hanlon (Angels with dirty faces) Phillipa Cookman, Thornehill, Tommy Taylor, Sarah Yeo and many more collaborations.

One such musical collaboration with Producer/artist/musician Patrick Jordan, spawned a new musical outfit called DOVE TIES.

Dove Ties are a British Duo formed during the Lockdown of 2021.

Patrick and Donna are both vocalists, multi-instrumentalists, producers and songwriters in their own rights but together, formed DOVE TIES.

It all started with social media post back in 28th July 2019 when Patrick posted a brief message asking if any female vocalists would record some backing vocals for him. Donna instantly replied and sent vocals for a song from Patricks then, fourth-coming single ‘you’ which features Nashville's LINEN RAY who also answered the call for vocals. Since then Donna and Patrick have regularly worked together, albeit remotely already releasing two, blues tinged songs LIGHT IT UP and WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN.

With a wide and varied musical background, not only does Donna release music under DONNA MARIE SONGS but also D.M.O and has had several hits in the E.D.M genre and mostly recently featured on the track Liam Keegan & Steve Robinson ft DMO - All I think about is you, reaching worldwide number 7 in the MUSIC WEEK dance charts.

Donna has also been hired as a contributor for FUTURE PUBLISHING to provide vocal samples & has a full page layout in COMPUTER MUSIC MAGAZINE, you can hear one of Donna's cowritten songs with GEORGE 'Jazzman' HOLLIDAY’S debut album 'MADE ON THE ROAD Volume 1' which was co-written on George's travelling studio bus.
