Albert Donadi was born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania. His musical journey started at an early age learning rhythm with percussion instruments at school, joining the concert and marching band as a drummer up until the 8th grade.  It was then when his parents bought him his first electric guitar.   His family was his early influence.  His mother took guitar lessons and played in a band through her high school years, and his father loved singing in church, at home and in the car.  His older brother was also trying to teach himself to play guitar.  "There were a lot of inspirational people around me during that time in my life, helping me hone in my craft as a guitar player; my singing was rough though. That didn't come around until my college days.  Playing in loud bars and house parties forced my voice to get stronger, looking back on it it amazes me that I still made time to work on my singing and guitar while playing college football and studying to be an elementary teacher."   After graduating college in Erie, PA  2005 he began his career as a Elementary school teacher, for 6 years he taught and played gigs whenever he could. In 2011, he decided to follow his dream and make music his full time career.  He packed up his van and headed south where he's been living in Sarasota, FL  for over 4 years. He  has recently completed his latest CD at the Spirit Ranch Studio. Living and working in the area allowed him to connect with many of the local musicians, who all have influenced him in becoming the musician he is today. In his spare time, Al enjoys surfing, paddleboarding, mountain biking, disc golfing, and being outdoors in nature as much as possible. Some of his interests include: The Ancient Pyramids, Astrology, Climate Change , Glaciers, and is very passionate about creating awareness through his music on a larger scale.
