David Dondero

Singer-songwriter David Dondero is a ramblin’ man, a troubadour, considered by some a modern day Woody Guthrie—an artist as committed to an experience of authentic American life as he is to the exalted prose he crafts in response to it. He’s crisscrossed the nation on road trip to road trip, navigating his way through an endless highway of characters linked through rich, regional shades of the American landscape. “Wherever you go/then there you are,” he sings on “Wherever You Go,” off his latest album #Zero With a Bullet, a track sandwiched between “Carolina Moon” and a song about po’boys. Sufjan Stevens once boasted he’d score an album for each one of the 50 states, but in his succinct seven-album catalog, Dondero has genuine tales of each one. With Ghosts I’ve Met, Levi Fuller.
