The CD is titled 'Io, short for 'Iolani, the name of the Hawaiian hawk. I use the hawk as a metaphor for my Grandmother who passed away recently. My Grandfather passed away when my Father was but 10 years old. Thus, my Grandmother had to raise 9 children by herself. She must've done a great job, for in 1964 she was honored as "Mother of the Year". Like the hawk, I have an imagery of my Grandmother flying up high, looking down and protecting those she love. This CD is dedicated to my mentor, my teacher, my Grandma."Learn More

Aptly titled, Donavon Frankenreiter’s “Revisited” is not just a re-recording of his 2004 self-titled album; it’s a complete reinterpretation... with a Hawaiian twist.
Kauai Resident and professional surfer, Donavon Frankenreiter, lives an incredible life for which he is extremely grateful. His first recording was made with the aid of his long time friend Jack Johnson and spawned the AAA radio hit “Free”. Teaming up with longtime band mate Matt Grundy (Bass/BGVs), and local musicians Kirk Smart (Guitars), and David Leach (Percussion), Donavon set out to re-record his debut album (originally released on Brushfire Records) using traditional Hawaiian instruments including the ukulele, lap steel guitar, and a Mauna Loa slack key tuned guitar. The result is a fresh new take on the original that allows Donavon’s envied lifestyle to ooze sweetly through the speakers, giving a completely new sound to favorites like “It Don’t Matter” and “Free”.
Catch old friends and collaborators Jack Johnson and Donavon both performing at the Mile High Music Festival Aug 2010. Check Donavon Frankenreiter’s website for extensive list of tour dates .
