Tupelo is a singer and songwriter hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania whose sound is a breath of fresh air to the pop music industry. With meaningful lyrics and big synth sounds, she creates a whole new world with her music. 


In addition to originals, Tupelo plays a three-hour repertoire of covers with collaborator Noah Myers, who is also known as the front man of his band "Kaelber", by artists as diverse as Pink Floyd to Coldplay.

As an indie pop rock duo, they have been performing regularly since 2015 in at places like Mr. Smalls Theatre, WYEP's Summer Music Fest, Deutschtown Music Festival, Millvale Music Festival, and many other local restaurants and venues in and around Pittsburgh Pennsylvania all the way down to Virginia Beach, Virginia.


As an emerging young artist, Tupelo has enjoyed a range of unique experiences sharing larger stages and recording with her father Jim Donovan (founding member of multi-platinum band Rusted Root) and his band Sun King Warriors. Her contributions to the Sun King Warriors include backing vocal harmonies on “Blend Into You” and “The One You’re Growing Into” as well as regular live vocal support at venues including Stage AE, the Byham Theater, Hartwood Acres and music festivals Great Blue Heron in Sherman, NY.


In early 2017, Tupelo was selected to participate in 91.3 WYEP’s Re-Imagination Project which pairs young artists with professional producers and musicians who help them refine their recording and performing skills by offering professional workshops, recording sessions and mentoring.




Tupelo now is attending Point Park University for Entertainment Management, and is currently one of Pioneer Records artists. 


Tupelo has been on stage her whole life.
