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

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you're done press the space bar and you're crush's name will appear in big letters on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually works

I was in line to see Donavon play in Pacific Beach. He came in from surfing, put his board in his van, changed out of his wetsuit, and walked into the show. His hair was still wet when he started playing!

My boyfriend turned me on to Donovan 5 years ago and we fell in love while listening to his music, playing backgammon and having cocktails on the patio. Love to fall asleep at night listening to him. Hope to see him live someday. Maybe he'll come to Reno sometime?

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!

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!!!
