Donna Greene is – in every sense of the word – a rock and roll warrior. From humble pub rock beginnings in Perth, Donna has now travelled nationally and internationally as an acclaimed entertainer in many arenas, from slick corporate tributes to explosive, full-production rock and metal shows.
Donna’s amazing voice and commanding stage presence has allowed her to don many musical hats with style and grace, and her communication skills have led her to be a favourite in many countries, regardless of cultural or linguistic barriers – her show stopping performance with Resonance Project at Hanoi’s My Dinh National Stadium in 2008 being a prime example.
As well as being an accomplished songwriter and session, studio and backing vocalist, Donna has the rare knack of being able to interpret the works of other artists like few can, be it Dusty Springfield’s sultry croon or Robert Plant’s exotic wail, with a presentation to match. Not only has she fronted two successful Led Zeppelin shows, ‘Lady Zeppelin’ and ‘Houses of The Holy – Led Zeppelin Experience’, her fill-in gig fronting Perth’s Hells Bells AC/DC tribute band has become the stuff of legend, and her star shone brightly at A Concert For Pecko with the cream of West Australian artists and peers. If there is something she cannot do to an exceptional level of quality, it has yet to be found.
Donna Greene is a musician with a social conscience, as evidenced when she founded the Sound The Siren Rock For MS/Rock Against MS platform, which was staged annually between 2013 and 2017 to raise awareness and funds for research into Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions. She is a regular supporter of numerous causes, and her profile as one of WA’s greatest women of rock has helped her to speak for the many who do not have a voice.
Although her musical palette is broad and varied, Donna is happiest when she rocks. Her recorded and live work with Graham Greene, Resonance Project and Jaime Page’s Dark Universe is testament to the fact that she has staked an unassailable claim in the male-dominated world of hard rock through talent, determination and sheer hard work.
Donna Greene continues to entertain, enlighten and inspire with her current projects and the music world is grateful and improved for that fact.
2023 sees Donna’s new project Blue On Black begin a new chapter with husband Graham Greene who returns to the stage after a 5 year hiatus from live playing.
