David Dondero is an American singer/songwriter. In 2006, NPR's All Songs Considered named Dondero one of the "best living songwriters" alongside Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Tom Waits. Dondero's career began in the mid-1990's with the release of four records with Clemson, SC-based punk band Sunbrain- three on Grass Records and one on Ghostmeat Records. In 1997, Dondero joined This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb as their drummer. He left in 1998 to focus on solo material which was more folk in nature. He has since released nine albums - three on Ghostmeat, three on Future Farmer Records and three on Conor Oberst's Team Love imprint. Dondero is perpetually on tour and has shared the stage with such acts as Crooked Fingers, Jolie Holland, Against Me!, The Mountain Goats, Preston School Of Industry, Bright Eyes, Tilly and the Wall, Spoon and Willy Mason.
