Two notes. That's all it takes to recognize the voice of Michael McDonald. To this add formidable songwriting and keyboard skills, and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for four decades. From '70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as "What A Fool Believes" and solo hits like "I Keep Forgettin'" through two highly-acclaimed Motown covers albums and recent genre-busting guest spots with alternative buzz bands Grizzly Bear and Holy Ghost, the five-time Grammy-winning McDonald is that rare thing in contemporary pop - an artist whose work is both timeless and ever-evolving.
