It's no wonder NPR listed David Dondero in its top ten list of Best
Living Songwriters- his voice, lyrics, and mastery of melody are second
to none. His praise by the press is equally impressive:
the sound of a man on fire. Smart, funny and honestly out of his mind;
but he comes back long enough to sing about it. One of the best
singer/songwriters I've ever heard."- Bob Boilen, NPR
this generation's Townes Van Zandt, a peripatetic tumbleweed casting
across the country's highways and dirt roads searching for truth and
love. His reedy tenor shuffles through clever verbal forays, over
raga-muffin folk, brightened by Dondero's road-wizened stoicism"
- Houston Chronicle
has a terrific ear and eye for simple detail, for spinning songs out of
the mundane just as deftly as standards like love and loss."
- David Bevan, Pitchfork
songs capture places in detail, but also the feeling that life can be
about grabbing a hold of the wind (or of a song, as he sometimes phrases
it) and seeing where it takes you."
- Dave Headon, Pop Matters
is a brilliant storyteller and poet. His searching melodies and
distinctive voice are heartbreakingly beautiful and uplifting."
- Robin Hilton, NPR
"Dondero writes folk songs that speak to people who don't think they like folk songs."
- Justin Berton, East Bay Express
since going solo and releasing his 1999 album ... The Pity Party, David
has shown a remarkable ability to capture the heart of America in his
songs, which he does with his rambling, poetic narratives, like a modern
day Jack Kerouac, and in turn captures the heart of humankind."
