A Country Showman

Recently signed to Drover Music to record his debut album, Donnie Soper continues his success in the spotlight.

He’s a theatre director, professional actor, musician, songwriter, and genuine showman; and when Donnie takes to the stage his presence captivates his audience and transforms their world for a moment in time. 

With country music flowing through his veins Donnie was born into a family of song, and his father Ian “Joey” Soper would be proud to know Donnie has upheld the family tradition with such triumph. From entertaining thousands at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre to sharing his songs in the more intimate setting of Poley’s Place on the Barrington, it’s Donnie’s rich vocal and strong musicianship that entices his audience and invites them to sing along with smiles on their faces and enjoy his entertaining and sincere performance.

If you’ve been one of the millions of people who have experienced an evening of fun and festivities with the Medieval Old English themed theatre restaurant Dirty Dick’s, you may recognise Donnie as one of the star characters ‘Tige’.  In his 11 years touring the country as part of their core crew Donnie participated in more than 200 performances, and had the opportunity to showcase his skills as a singer, musician, comedian and actor.

Donnie’s skills as an actor were earlier polished and perfected with The Maitland Gilbert & Sullivan Musical Society, and he starred in many musicals including PATIENCE, THE MUSIC MAN, HELLO DOLLY & YEOMAN OF THE GUARD. He also went on to direct their very successful productions of THE HOT MIKADO, OKLAHOMA and GREASE.

Donnie released his debut album 'Fly Like A Bird' on the Drover Music Label in May 2012. Produced  by renowned Tamworth identity Steve Newton at Enrec Studios, Donnie's album is a great selection of country favourites and self penned songs.
