David Dondero has done all kinds of work in his life. He's been a carpenter, a cook, a trucker, a bartender in Alaska, a drummer in This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, a solar panel installer, a day laborer, a record store clerk, and a gas pumping attendant in New Jersey, but at the end of the day he's a songwriter.
He released his 9th album Inside the Cat's Eye in January 2017 via Koschke Records, a label based in Corvallis, Oregon.
In December 2017 Austin, Texas label Keeled Scales released his second album, 1999's Spider West Myhskin and a City Bus on vinyl for the first time ever.
In 2006, NPR's "All Songs Considered" named him one of the 10 Best Living Songwriters.
