Berry Donmark’s performing career kicked off in the mid-1980s in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He started off performing original folk songs that ranged from historical storytelling to topical tunes. He appeared at various locations around the campus town, including an impromptu and infamous appearance at the legendary Mr. Flood’s Party.
Following several years performing in Minneapolis cover bands in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Berry released two albums of original material - 1995’s Secrets & Lies and 2002’s Midway Angels. Both pre-dated the prominence of digital distribution and have been lost to time (with the exception of a few scattered cassettes and burned CDs). In 2022, and credited under his writing name, Berry appeared on The Other Hit’s release DIEGO, featuring 10 of his original tunes. In 2023 he began releasing solo material as Berry Donmark.
"Rain Drenched Sparrow" is an homage to the singer-songwriters and folk music artists of Canada. That single was followed by "Praying Tonight," a different take on Donmark's Americana style.
In May 2023, Aldora Britain Records released the EP Aldora Britain Records Presents . . . Berry Donmark.
