Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2017 – Today, Jamtown, which is comprised of Cisco Adler, G. Love & Donavon Frankenreiter, released their second single “Island Time” – PRESS HERE to listen via Billboard. The single will be available via all digital platforms today. Every once in a while, the stars align, and the separate paths of celebrated musicians converge at just the right time in just the right place. We’ve seen it time and time again throughout history from The Traveling Wilburys to The Highwaymen and now we see it again with Jamtown. The band will be releasing their debut EP on June 23, 2017 via Adler’s Bananabeat Records.
With a shared history that stretches back two decades and countless individual accolades under their respective belts, Jamtown unites three celebrated talents – Cisco Adler, Donavon Frankenreiter, and G. Love under one flag to create pure musical magic. The trio brings together a myriad of styles and backgrounds – with roots as a professional surfer, beachside wisdom, and a gnarly mustache, Hawaii-based Frankenreiter remains surf rock’s 21st century poet laureate, while harmonica-wielding G.’s Philadelphia brew of pop, reggae, and hip-hop turned G. Love & The Special Sauce into a Gold-certified mainstay since 1993. A Grammy nominated producer and songwriter whose penned hits for artists across all genres while amassing a sizable solo discography of his own, Malibu-born Adler remains a double-threat: studio guru and dynamic artist.
The band recorded in-the-moment at Bananabeat, Adler’s studio in Malibu, California, where Adler set up stations with different instruments in each room like “a musician’s playground.” At whim, they could pick up and press record. As a result, the music conjures a delicate magic as the three voices comprise one heavenly harmony equally informed by spontaneity and the Malibu mystique, which will come to life in their forthcoming self-titled debut EP.
“We did this beautiful thing, and it happened in a serendipitous way,” concludes G. Love. “We just got our ticket to this spaceship, roller coaster, magic carpet, or whatever you want to call it. We’re about to explode into the musical universe. Hang on. It’s just the most exciting thing I’ve felt in 20 years.”
Jamtown sold out their two back-to-back shows in San Diego last month and has more great shows to come this summer. They will be performing at Arroyo Seco, BroAm, and Monterey International Pop Festival – Celebrates 50 Years. They’ll also be opening for Jack Johnson at the Hollywood Bowl and at Fiddlar’s Field in Denver.
