Album Review

Donavon Frankenreiter is a surfing buddy of Jack Johnson. He also makes music that surprisingly isn't too dissimilar to Johnson's. Add to that the fact that Johnson produces and plays a variety of instruments and sings on Frankenreiter's debut CD and you have a record that is tailor-made for fans of Jack Johnson. Also for fans of laid-back, good-time music, that has much in common with jam bands like Phish (without the instrumental prowess and willingness to show it off) and also soft rock sounds of the '70s. Every song is built around acoustic guitar, quiet drums, and mellow percussion, and Frankenreiter never raises the tempo much past ramble, although on "Day Dreamer" he does dial it all the way up to lope. Frankenreiter has a good-natured stoned drawl of a voice that delivers his light and breezy lyrics perfectly and with slacker soul. The pure sweetness of the album may turn off some listeners as might the similarity of the songs, but those who are into it will be very into it. Perfect for campfires late at night on the beach, early Sunday-morning afters, and lazy days in the cubicle, Frankenreiter has crafted a fine debut full of friendliness and low-key charm.

It"s Good

This CD is shifts from being very mellow to more up beat and moving sevral times. He has a style that fits surfers, beach boys and anyone who is willing to buy the CD. It is worth your time to listen to and has many great single songs that will be sure to get stuck in your head.

I am a die hard Jack Johnson and G. Love fan and Donavon is now on my list. Amazing vocals, amazing guitar, great sound, and fun. If you like Jack, you will appreciate his friend Donavon. Definately has the chill, laid back sound. Great music to listen to while driving, in the background at a party, or the stuff you gather a bunch of friends around and just veg out to.

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...
