Singer/songwriter/pro surfer Donavon Frankenreiter has released his fourth album, Glow, on his own label, Liquid Tambourine Records (through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group). Frankenreiter has been a busy man this summer; he just wrapped up a Verizon & Samsung sponsored two month tour of the East Coast, where he hit up nearly every surf town between Florida and Maine. He also played the ORC Summer Market Convention in Salt Lake City in August, after the Unified Bouldering Championships. He even had some time to stop by Zappos headquarters to answer some customer service calls and play a couple songs to to entertain the Zappos Family and support his sponsor, Sanuk sandals
"Glow," the title track and first single off the new album, is off to a fast start at radio. It's getting a great reaction and a plethora of Triple A stations have been spinning the record early, including KTVZ/Minneapolis, WCOO/Charleston, WXPK/White Plains, KRPI/San Diego, KBCO/Denver and WXPN/Philadelphia among others. "Glow" is positive and uplifting. Riding a sweet, syncopated acoustic strum, the song swells into a beautiful chorus as Frankenreiter sings, "I want to see you glow/I want to see your daylight shining all around your heart."
When Donavon Frankenreiter was 10 years old, he got his first surfboard. Six years later, he picked up his first guitar. It was the beginning of a wildly creative journey: His improvisational twin obsessions have carried him around the globe and into his fans' hearts. As Frankenreiter prepares to release his fourth album, Glow, this fall, the 37-year-old singer/songwriter/pro surfer admits he still thrives on simply taking the plunge. "We don't have a set show, if we did, I would go crazy," he says. "You never know what's going to happen. I love that element of surprise with music and surfing — you never catch the same wave twice."
