First Listen: Stream David Dondero’s new album at NPR

Beginning today,  David Dondero’s fantastic new record, “#Zero with a Bullet” is streaming in its entirety at NPR. Robin Hilton at All Songs Considered had some lovely things to say about Dave:

“Dondero is a brilliant storyteller and poet. His searching melodies and distinctive voice are heartbreakingly beautiful and uplifting. But after a decade of releasing albums, Dondero remains criminally unknown … The songs come from Dondero’s own life. On a never-ending tour and living out of his car, Dondero has long trudged through the detritus of humanity, turning his acute observations and experiences into sometimes twisted tales … Dondero exposes this backroads landscape and all its emotional land mines on Number Zero With a Bullet. With each listen, it stands out as his sharpest and most inspired work.”

“#Zero with a Bullet” is now shipping from our webstore.
