This month, 92Q is celebrating Black Music Month with a series of exclusive videos dedicated to Baltimore/Maryland artists. Tune in and watch all month (June 2016) as our hometown heroes sit down to talk about the art, culture and impact of black music, and how B’More played a part in their musical journey. Next up…
Donovan aka “Don Trunk” started his business out of the “trunk” of his car selling beat mixtapes around Baltimore and beyond. As a child, his mother introduced him to the world of art and a wide variety of music from Marvin Gaye to Nina Simone. Don Trunk got his feet wet in the business when he first started doing studio sessions out his grandmother’s basement then landed a few songs on the radio. During that time, he ended up working studio internships, got a job here at 92Q and went on to work in the music business traveling with groups like Dru Hill on tours across the country.
Don Trunk says his highest achievement to date is building a studio in Baltimore called Dream 1st Studios. After his first production deal, he took his dream to the next level and invested all his profits into building Dream 1st Studios and now he is enjoying the success of being a studio owner. He’s recorded over 300 artists in the Baltimore and DMV area since the opening in May 2015 and plans to help as many B’more artist as he can become published, get on the radio and be heard by millions around the world.
