(Profile by Marc Welgemoed – Exclusive Manager and Agent:  DONOVAN VALLANCE)

Donovan Vallance, currently 21 years of age, is no longer an unfamiliar name in local music circles.  His music career kicked off in 2007 when he was the ultimate winner at the first BAY FM Spiral Competition – he achieved awards for Best Newcomer of the Year;  Best Solo Artist, as well as for Overall Winner... and this after his debut hit single, “Ek maak jou myne”, started playing on BAY FM for two months! 

During July 2007, Donovan and his current manager and agent, Marc Welgemoed, started to write some songs together and in March 2008 his debut album, “Gee my net ‘n kans”, was released.  The album is extremely popular amongst Donovan’s supporters and won Donovan three BAY FM number one-hit singles, namely “Ek maak jou myne”, “Langpad” and “Somer in my lewe”. 

On 5 February 2010, Donovan’s long-awaited second album, “Rock my Wêreld”, was released. It is packed with hits, including the singles, “Speel-speel” and “Laataand Party”, which both reached the number one position on the Bay FM Top 5 Local Sounds. 

This album recently landed a record deal for Donovan with The David Gresham Record Company (Pty) Ltd, one of the most well-known and oldest record companies in South Africa, which record company also has excellent international ties with overseas artists and their record companies.

Donovan is performing both locally and nationally.  He has performed at various big festivals, including the 2008 and 2009 Absa KKNK in Oudtshoorn, the 2008 and 2010 Aardklop National Arts Festival, the 2008 Loerie Naartjie Festival, the 2007, 2008 and 2009 Absa Kirkwood Wildlife Festival, the 2008 Rittel Festival in Vredendal, the 2010 Volksblad National Arts Festival in Bloemfontein, as well as the Boardwalk’s Burger Opskop in Port Elizabeth in 2008 and 2010. 

Apart from this, he has also performed alongside various celebrities, including Ray Dylan, Nicholis Louw, Wicus van der Merwe,  Jody Williams,  Freddie Nest, David Fourie and Lianie May, as well as at various local festivals and concerts. 

Donovan is focussing mainly on Afrikaans dance music while incorporating his own, unique elements therein.  His stage personality is extremely energetic and his charismatic voice complements his music in a very special manner.  He is intriguing audiences at all his concerts and has built up a substantial fanbase, both locally, in the rest of the country, as well as amongst some of the national celebrities.  It can now truly be said that Donovan is a celebrity in his own right.

Donovan is exclusively managed and represented  by Marc Welgemoed and nationally marketed and distributed by The David Gresham Record Company (Pty) Ltd.  If you want to reserve Donovan for a performance, obtain more information regarding him as an artist or purchase any of his official products, including the albums “Gee my net ‘n kans” and “Rock my Wêreld”, contact Marc at 084 22 14 237 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
