In January 1998, Dan became completely acoustic. The English Fen dweller released his third solo album, THE LEAVEN DELL.
The Leaven Dell presented a song writer settled and comfortable with darkness and mystery that seems to have haunted this man since the initial demise of his band Tribe of Dan back in 1992.
THE HEX THE GHEARS… the fourth solo album. Now totally rejuvenated and electric once more Donovan still remains difficult to bag, but on this project he sits comfortably somewhere around The Pixies, Tom Waits and Death in Vegas.
Donovan has toured sporadically around the UK, Holland and Belgium over the next 15 years and toured as 'Dan Donovan's Gar-age' through 2003.
Donovan now tours and records as part of King Kool.
