Before launching a solo career as the protégé of Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter began his professional life as a surfer. Born in Southern California, he landed a sponsorship with Billabong as a young teenager and moved to Hawaii at the age of 14.
Frankenreiter began to dabble in music at the age of 18 while he played in a group known as Peanut Butter and Jam. In 1996 he wholeheartedly kick started his musical career with the formation of his own 70’s rock inspired band, Sunchild. Disbanding from Sunchild in 2001, Donovan went on to pursue a solo career. In 2002, Frankenreiter signed with Brushfire Records and began recording his first solo album with co-producers and good friends, Jack Johnson and Mario Caldato Jr. In 2004, he released his self-titled album, “Donavon Frankenreiter,” which went on to reach the Top 40 of the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).
In 2010, Frankenreiter formed his own label, Liquid Tambourine Records after sharing a label with the likes of Elvis Costello and Willie Nelson. Shortly thereafter, he recorded and released his fourth original studio album dubbed “Glow.”
