Say it once for me...

There's a great article over at East Bay Express about David Dondero. Check it out if you have a few minutes. This is the guy that apparently gave Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes, just in case you don't know) the confidence to sing as he currently does...

Oberst recalled when he was fourteen years old and he saw a younger Dondero sing in an Omaha club with his then-band, Sunbrain. "His voice struck me," Oberst said. "It was awkward, but it made the most of its imperfections. When I saw him sing it was as if, for me, it was okay to have a weird-sounding voice."

Check out the article at East Bay Express. And here's a couple of links to some music.

David Dondero - Rosary (from, you may have to register)

David Dondero - Live (scroll down a bit, there are two big files here)

You can also here a few more tracks (Real - yuck) over at Future Farmers and can purchase his albums there as well. Here's a music video for his song "If You Break My Heart."
