Steve McDonald Profile

Keith Newman
26 Nov 2015

After a long career with some of New Zealand’s top rock bands, Steve McDonald became a one-man band, creating his wizardry from behind a bank of keyboards and eventually touring the globe as a popular world music drawcard.

The former member of Dizzy Limit, Timberjack, Taylor and The Human Instinct delivered a score of folk rock and haunting atmospheric solo albums that have more recently drawn from his rich Celtic heritage.
