Donavon embarks on his fifth visit to New Zealand following the release of his fourth studio album Glow (Liberator Music). The 11-track release offers up a stellar collection of warm, uplifting, laidback, softly infectious tunes.
Californian-bred Hawaiian resident Donavon was introduced to New Zealand audiences in 2003, opening for long-time friend and fellow surfer Jack Johnson. The following year Donavon was welcomed back for his own headline dates and released his highly successful self-titled debut album.
After an extensive world tour in support of the album, including a further set of New Zealand tour dates with Johnson in 2005, in 2006 Donavon released a self-produced 2nd album Move By Yourself and followed up again in August 2008 with Pass It Around, featuring like-minded souls Ben Harper and G-Love.
With guitar in hand, Donavon delivers the best of optimistic summery, acoustic-surfer sounds. So wipe the sand from your feet and get along to catch the glow with Donavon Frankenreiter this March.
