A little background: While growing up in SoCal, Donovan began his professional life not as a musician, but as a surfer. When he was a teenager, he moved to Hawaii, where he met Jack Johnson. The two quickly became good buddies, and in 2004, that friendship reached a new level when Donovan released his self-titled debut on Jack’s Brushfire Records label.
Where you’ve heard Donovan: He teamed up with Koool G Murder (of Eels) on a song called “Lovely Day,” which was featured on a couple movie soundtracks, including Snakes on a Plane (sadly, not Eels on a Boat).
What he’s been up to lately: Other than becoming a dad and maintaining his legendary mustache, he released The Heart in 2015. The sentimental record marks the start of his second decade as a solo artist.
Island influence: In recent years, Donovan’s music has also incorporated instruments like the slack key guitar, lap steel, and ukulele, which makes sense considering he now lives with his family in Kauai.
