Who is Thomas Donovan?

Thomas Donovan is a Canadian dance-pop singer-songwriter and recording artist born in Vancouver. He was known in the 1990s for his string of radio and club hits. Thomas' most successful electronic music works include "A Calling Around The World", "Total Controller", "High Time", "Colorcode", "All We Need For Christmas", "She'll Do What She Wants", "Trapped", "This Time I Feel It", and "Yesterday's Dream".

Vancouver radio station Z95.3FM originally discovered Thomas Donovan and play-listed 10 of his songs over a 5-year span. Other initial supporters included Vancouver's LG73 radio and Seattle's dance station C89.5FM. Top-40 radio support in both Vancouver and Seattle became a spring board for Thomas' dance music to jump to other stations and club circuits across the U.S., Canada and abroad.

Thomas mixes human rights and global activism lyrics in his exploration of synth-pop music. Thomas' release "Calling Around the World" is a visual and lyrical call to action, inspired by concern for environmental issues and the greater human condition. Thomas directed, edited and produced the first history documentary of Vancouver's lesbian, gay, transgendered and bisexual community.
