Chris Donley is more than just a singer/songwriter...he is the quite possibly the hardest working musician in Ohio...
When it comes to his solo acoustic shows, Chris allows the crowd to decide the outcome of the show by taking request after request, almost trying to get the crowd to stump him with his huge song list that he picks from. Choosing from album after album worth of original material and too many cover songs to list, Chris can cater his solo acoustic show to whatever event he may be representing, always shocking patrons with his wide range (vocally and musically) and getting smiles and positive responses.
Keeping an intense touring schedule has allowed Chris to write his own path. Playing anywhere from 150-250/year (minus 2020 because of Corona) for years keeps Chris busy entertaining crowds and spreading his talent throughout the midwest and throughout the states. Always working, always playing, always writing, Chris has wowed crowds and venues alike. With the positive attitude he shares with friends, fans, and clubs/venues, Chris always delivers whatever is needed for any occasion.

What People Are Saying!!
We’ve been Chris fans since the early days of Sindust, always entertaining, fun, smart, so talented. His shut ins at the height of the pandemic helped many people forget about it for a few hours. We think that he helped us through that winter. We booked him for our sons 40th birthday party, he wouldn’t even stop long enough to eat 4 hours straight.

Chris Donley is my favorite songwriter to work with…and I don’t work with many. More times than not, I have fully formed musical ideas I can show a band, but Chris always challenges me as a writer and engineer.
I’d be happy just hearing him play a raw song idea, but it’s my privilege to jump and add a part or two when we are doing French Donkey music. Cover wise, don’t get me started…Chris knows every song I know, plus a thousand I’ve never heard before!
