Don Tuttle is not a huge man, his presence is nonetheless impressively large, but it’s his voice that is impossible to ignore. A mellow version of Elvis Presley is possibly the most direct way to describe Don Tuttle’s singing voice. Originally from Picton, Ontario, Tuttle is a newcomer to Iroquois but already delights audiences in Kemptville, North Gower, Winchester, Smiths Falls, Erinsville and Orleans. Though he’d like nothing better than to perform his own original material – and he is prolific – he can also do a whole evening of country and rock covers.
Don Tuttle is a multi-talented singer/songwriter, born October 17th. Raised by loving parents they encouraged his passion for music. At the age of 18 both Don & his brother appeared on the “Jenny Jones” show in a twin talent search. They placed 2nd out of a field of 15. The experience cemented Don’s passion and love for the music. After taking a year of guitar lessons paid for by a friend who believed in Don’s talent, he began to teach himself some of his favorite songs. The songs he started with were “The Dance” by Garth Brooks, “That’s All Right Mama”, Elvis Pressley and the famous Mickey Gilley tune,” The Girls All Get Prettier At Closing Time”.
