(CelebrityAccess mMdiaWire) —
Donovan, in conjunction with Clive Black of Blacklist Entertainment in the UK, has signed with Metropolitan Talent for management. The signing coincides with the 40th Anniversary of Donovan’s music career, the just released Try For The Sun: The Journey of Donovan, a deluxe box set spanning 1964-2005 recordings on Epic/Legacy, and the December publication of The Autobiography of Donovan: The Hurdy Gurdy Man (St. Martin’s Press). A 40th Anniversary North American concert tour will begin in November.
“In the late 60’s and early 70’s Donovan was one of the most influential artists of the time," states John Scher, Metropolitan’s co-CEO. "He created a truly classic body of work. Through the years, many of those songs have become a part of the fabric of people’s lives. Everyone at Metropolitan is incredibly excited to represent Donovan, and we look forward to re-introducing him to his legion of fans and to introducing him to a whole new audience.” –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
