David Dondero
David Dondero has done all kinds of work in his life. He's been a carpenter, a cook, a trucker, a bartender in Alaska, a drummer in This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, a solar panel installer, a day laborer, a record store clerk, and a gas pumping attendant in New Jersey, but at the end of the day he's a songwriter.
"Inside the Cat's Eye" is Dondero's 9th studio album and it adds even more nuance and heart to an already impressive body of work. It will be released January 23 on Koschke Records.
NPR named him one of the "10 Best Living Songwriters" and he's toured with Bright Eyes, David Bazan, and Jolie Holland.

What others have said:
"This is 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
"Dondero is 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

"He 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
HEELS is from Memphis. They are the best band in the world. They have a record on iTunes called "even if it's nothing it's something".
