Mr. Gould has performed in front of over 75,000 people during the season opener for the San Francisco 49ers at LEVI Stadium and his life story has been featured on national television programs. His story was also featured in major newspapers including The Washington Post.
Before being discovered, Gould was homeless and battled addiction. One day a passerby recorded Gould playing his unique piano version of Styx’s “Come Sail Away” on one of the public pianos on downtown Sarasota, Florida. The YouTube video went viral and generated over fourty (40) million views on YouTube, touching people all across the world.
“I was this homeless guy on the streets and the next thing you know, I’m in the national spotlight, the world spotlight,” Gould said.
Donald Gould’s debut studio album, Walk on Water, was released by Triple Pop in 2017.
The first single “Come Sail Away” is also now available on iTunes and Google Play.
