Donavon Frankenreiter

Before launching a solo career as the protégé of Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter began his professional life as a surfer. Born in Southern California on December 10, 1972, he landed a sponsorship with Billabong as a young teenager and moved to Hawaii when he was 14. There, he rented a home from the parents of Jack Johnson, a fellow surfer with an untapped musical talent. The two became fast friends, learning guitar together and hanging out between trips to the beach. Music was always a hobby for Frankenreiter, who began playing guitar in a local rock band called Sunchild during his late teens, but it wasn't until 2002 that he grew confident enough to try a solo career. Meanwhile, Johnson's musical career had taken a meteoric leap, and he was starting his own Brushfire Records label. Frankenreiter reached out to his old friend, who released Frankenreiter's self-titled debut in May 2004. Johnson also made a guest appearance on the record, along with G. Love and Koool G Murder of the Eels.

For his next record, Frankenreiter broke from his mentor's label and partnered up with Lost Highway, which released 2006's Move by Yourself. An EP full of cover songs, Recycled Recipes, appeared in 2007, with the polished full-length Pass It Around following a year later. Around this time, Frankenreiter relocated to Kauai and began gravitating toward Hawaiian instruments like slack key guitar, lap steel, and ukulele. All three figured prominently on his next album, Revisited, essentially a reinterpreted version of his 2004 debut with a tropical island feel. Revisited was released in 2010, as were a second volume of the Recycled Recipes series and a fourth album of original material, Glow. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

vwhitcome
i like his voice
so are you the one with the email DonavonR4831 3 @ y a h o o . c o m ?
Sounds a lot like Jamiroquai which is a good thing
this is Jack Johnson with Donavon's background vocals (and his three verses) haha
Not too shabby!
well he is amazing.

Been a fan of Donavons surfing since way back. Was glad to see him pursue music as a career. All he needs is a bit more confidence which will come with time. He's got a great sense of humor and love watching his antics with the younger surfers on various shows on Fuel TV.
I remember when he use to play with Mike at the pizza joint in So Cal. Good times!
bassmann
Sounds good. He should try his own original style
Donavon Janus Landing amazing set on a hot dry Florida night

My hubby is a HUGE surfer so he know who Donovon was before the music. We've seen him live three times now and have all of his albums. Even ran into him at Langerado in 2005 (?) before he got "big" and he had this "how the hell did I get HERE" look about him. He looked like a fish out of water (pun intended) but blew the crowd away!! Comepletely "real" and down to earth... Keep lovin life, Donny!!!
Cali love....
I like this pop rock, too.
joyfulrichie
I hope Donavon excels with his career. He has great talent!!

omg! He was at SOHO in SantaBarbara without knowing who he was I bought his GLOW cd, thinking it he was a local artist and wanted to support him but really just enjoyed his music so much I just had to have the cd :p crazy should have gotten it signed
sunnysideupc r e a t i o n s
my dad likes his music.
haymaesyd
Love your music...it just makes you feel good.
very groovy!
I dig this tune
What a cool background story! Makes Donavon that much cooler. Its so much easier to connect with artists that seem down to earth and someone you'd actually want to be around. If I'm ever in Hawaii I'm going to look you up Donavon Frankenreite r and you best be showing me some moves on the surf board!
Cool song. It sounds so much like Jack Johnson's song "Bubbly Toes". <=
