Donald Cumming

Donald Cumming has had a great deal of success in his brief career. With two albums and as many line ups, his band The Virgins were both ‘tomorrow’s brightest stars’ and ‘yesterday’s exiles.’  The New York City based band received accolades and rave reviews until the bands break up in 2013.   NME called the band’s last album a “dynamic listen” and described “how classic it sounds, Cumming’s posturing sounding as if it’s been lifted straight from a forgotten vinyl covered in dust and suspicious stains. It’s Dire Straits teamed with louche New York cool – a combination that shouldn’t work, but totally does.” The band performed on such shows as the Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and Last Call with Carson Daly. His music has been featured on hit television shows including Gossip Girl (entire episode of The Virgins songs only), Entourage, Vampire Diaries as well as used in campaigns by such brands as Ray Bans, Honda, Samsung and Adidas.  The Virgins also toured arenas opening for The Killers and opened for Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Sonic Youth, Patti Smith and others.
