Biography

David Dondero is a modern-day troubadour, a minstrel, a bard, a rolling stone, a traveling wilbury -- he gets around, and wherever he goes, he makes music. He's been getting around to odd parts of America, making music -- of a primarily transient, narrative, and acoustic variety, in the tradition of great American troubadours of decades past -- since the early '90s.

But Dondero doesn't just write songs, he writes great songs. In fact, NPR named him one of the "best living songwriters" alongside Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Tom Waits. Comparisons to American folk musician and renowned troubadour Townes Van Zandt hold up, as David's music largely remains on the periphery. Though not yet a household name, Dondero's music is beloved by those in the know. Must-listen songs include "The Real Tina Turner", "Rothko Chapel" and "The Living and The Dead". Dondero will be releasing his 7th studio album in 2010, "Number Zero With A Bullet", his third with Team Love Records and the follow-up to 2007's "Simple Love".
