An American songwriter born in Duluth, MN. He grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and Northern New Jersey. He graduated Clemson University and floated around the South for close to a decade. The Carolinas, Georgia, Florida and New Orleans. Currently a "Transient" living on the road out of a '92 Toyota Corolla. His most recent home was a farm in Laytonville, CA. He's an uncertified carpenter who fixes up dilapidated structures to provide living space for other workers. He's a solar panel installer, a waiter, bartender, gas pumper, roofer, plumber assistant, dishwasher, mason laborer, multi media worker, fence installer, trash hauler, piano mover, landscaper, sprinkler system installer, sheetrocker/floater, tile setter, floor sweeper, office cleaner, hotel room cleaner, bellhop, valet driver, porter, truck driver, food deliverer, drummer and a song writer. He rambles around the world trying to find the elusive tune which reflects the experience of going and getting gone. He's in love with the living and the dying.. the giving and the trying. He's 44, unmarried and has no children. He doesn't live to collect material possessions. He travels light with a whole lotta mental baggage. He reads a book then gives it away. He keeps no possessions to put on display. He has written 8 original song albums, some which have brought critical acclaim around the world and praise from his peers, while others have slipped through the cracks into the abyss of obscurity. He rides a fickle line of fringe success unfazed. At different times he's been known for self sabotaging his own career. A recovering alcoholic.. occasional backslider. His most recent album "This Guitar" was self released via a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign. The vinyl version was released with help in part by Unrequited Records. A San Francisco based literary record label. The digital version of "This Guitar" and all other releases by Dondero can be found on bandcamp. His address is www.daviddondero1.bandcamp.com Other earlier titles by Dondero have been released via Ghostmeat Records, Future Farmer Recordings and Team Love Records. Dondero also released a retrospective collection of songs from his earlier work in the Summer of 2013 entitled "Golden Hits Vol. 1" The songs were re-recorded with just voice and guitar for this double album. A tongue in cheek title surely to get a laugh from those who know his work. This was also put out via Kickstarter. Dondero is currently reaching the end of his rope .. dangling by a thread high above a large canyon. He will eventually plummet to the depths below to face a grim death if he doesn't get out of the straight jacket in time. He's taken lessons from Flexo "the rubber boy" and will surely find a way out. if not.. he may be reincarnated as a Western Tanager but only if he's lucky. Chances are he'll return again as a lady bug.. or an alligator lizard.
