Today, Jamtown, which is comprised of Cisco Adler, G. Love & Donovan Frankenreiter, premiered their first song “Fool in Love” via Relix – CLICK HERE to watch the video. The single will be available via all digital platforms tomorrow, May 5. 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.
“Fool in Love” coasts ahead on a country shuffle punctuated by harmonica, breezy acoustic guitars. On the track, Frankenreiter said, “You’d do anything in the world for the girl you’re in love with. You’d dance even if you don’t want to dance, because you’re a fool in love.”
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.
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.
