Don met Joe Keefe (Family Of The Year) via her roommate at the time, Joe’s best friend, while living in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. The two shared a creative lens and often discussed collaborating. By mid-2018 the stars aligned and the opportunity presented itself. Together they co-wrote and Joe produced Don’s debut EP Selfish Baby out of his home studio in Eagle Rock, CA. While drawing on their collective inspirations but remaining uniquely Don, a friend described the sound as: “If some mutant lingerie-and-combat-boots-clad combination of Nina Persson from The Cardigans, Susanna Hoffs from The Bangles, the coy and yearning early Lana Del Rey of “Video Games,” and “Still The One”-era Shania Twain wrote thoughtful and sexy pop music in 2019 without real precedent or peers it would sound SOMETHING close to Don’s long awaited debut EP.”
