Donovan F Blackwood

When you listen to the EP Break My Back by Donovan Blackwood you can see the growth from the first album This Time. From the delicate love song Can You Feel to the visceral title track. Whilst Star is both funky and soulful to the reflective We Had Moments, co written with Junior Giscombe, ending with the heart breaking Everybody But Me this is a compact, strong body of work.

He is currently lead vocalist for the band Heatwave and has recently made a guest appearance on The British Collective’s new album, The Renaissance Begins, on the track Won’t You Come Over which also features Junior Giscombe, Roachford, Lee John, Omar, Don E & Noel McKoy.

As an actor played The Chief in the series Top Coppers on BBC3, for which he won the Movie Video and Screen Award for Best Comedy Performance the show then transferred to BBC2.

He also featured as Drill Sergeant Baxter in The Windsors, as well as an appearance as Roughneck in Miss You Already.

His voiceover work includes both Sony & Rubicon
