Hi there, my name is Don. I have taught, performed and composed music for over 20 years. I specialize in Blues, Funk, R&B/Soul, Rock, EDM, Singer/Songwriter, Pop. I look forward to laying down some piano tracks for you, or full band arrangements. If you would like to hear some samples, please visit www.bol-Z.com. Hope to hear from you soon!

I am a classically trained pianist who graduated from The University of Western Ontario with an Honour's Bachelor of Musical Arts Degree, and The University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Education. I have played in numerous bands over the years targeting a variety of styles (funk, blues, rock, latin, EDM, lounge jazz, pop). I do suggest that you listen to some of my sample tracks on my website, www.bol-z.com or on soundcloud, to get a sense of what it is that I do.

Reviews of Don Bowles (Bol-Z.com)

    This one got all my synapses firing! It was a different song with some cool beats that begged for layers of harmonies and intersected vocals and Don, being the coolest guy on earth, always let me go crazy with his songs. I really liked the result!
    Thanks again Don! (I am pretty positive you have clones! No one can write songs that fast!)

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter0213 days agoby Verified Review (Client)

    I am always excited to hear what Don will come up with next. So many great ideas that my brain is always on constant alert! Thanks for keep doing this with me Don!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter0221 days agoby Verified Review (Client)

    One of the coolest parts of working with Don is that we already know each other so well that the songs just have a life of their own after we go back and forth on them and all the small interactions and ideas just add to a greater result every time. It's a very rewarding process that we fine tune on each song! Thanks for the ongoing trust Don!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter0225 days agoby Verified Review (Client)

    I don't know how Don does it, but he can write quality songs faster than anyone I know. It's mind-blowing how prolific this guy is! It has been an honor to work with him and we are getting better and better on each song we do. Have an idea for a song? Talk to Don!

    When everything goes smooth as it does on our great musical partnership, nothing better than to try different stuff and see what happens and Don delivers in all genres, every time. This one was so much fun to do and I only had to let loose on what Don had already done with the song.
    Thanks again Don for keep working with me!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter02about 1 month agoby Verified Review (Client)

    This song gave me an incredible rush to do it and Don, again, trusted me blindly.
    I am always amazed at the speed Don writes great music and lyrics and I feel humbled to have the chance to work again and again with such a nice person.
    Impossible to recommend enough!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter02about 1 month agoby Verified Review (Client)

    This job gave me a very special feeling of accomplishment and also opened some extra possibilities to help Don with a whole different skill set.
    I think me and Don already have material for a full length album..or 2. :)
    Always a rewarding experience. Thanks Don!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter02about 1 month agoby Verified Review (Client)

    Don is definitely the most prolific composer I worked with on Soundbetter to date, hands down. So many great songs to work with that it makes my job really easy.
    Not only that but Don is also kind enough to let me indulge on some crazy stuff on his songs :) Thanks Don!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter02about 1 month agoby Verified Review (Client)

    Working with Don always brings unexpected surprises.
    This song was supposed to go one way, but we turned it upside down and went the opposite way. The result? Awesome, because Don knows how to write a great song to begin with, so everything else is a lot easier! Recommended? Are you kidding? Don is mandatory!

  • Listing_thumb_soundbetter02about 1 month agoby Verified Review (Client)

    When a job becomes more than what was initially intended and you touch the hearts of the people you work with, that when we think all of this is really worth it.
    Working with Don have been so much more than a simple client/musician trade of.
    Don is truly a friend, just a few hundred miles apart. Thanks Don!
