Former San Francisco private detective Donovan Plant spent nearly two decades chasing leads and tailing cheaters before returning to his musical roots. He blends rock, pop and country influences with lyrics inspired by the city. In 2011, Donovan released his first EP, "Be With You" (Niteflite Music - Germany), which included a video produced and directed by Ricky Kelley. He volunteers regularly with Bread and Roses Presents and had the honor of playing inside San Quentin State Prison in 2016 and 2017 as part of their annual Day of Peace celebrations. In 2017, Donovan signed with Angel Blossom Records and began work on an EP with Grammy balloted Artist/Producer Scott Mickelson.

The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland’s relatively recent rise to cultural mecca has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, a band of ‘90s-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their self-titled debut LP, The Breaking, is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage.

Frontman Adam Sweeney and lead guitarist Tim Karplus form the core of the band, whose vintage sound is best defined by album opener Gone Electric. From its wall of rhythm guitars that honor the band’s more raucous influences to its undeniable pop chorus hook, the single represents a solid debut effort that is sure to remind listeners where alternative rock found its footing.
