From the acclaimed songwriting troubadour DAVID DONDERO comes Simple Love, the follow up to his critically lauded 2005 release, South of the South. Few songwriters have experienced and expressed the sinking depths and uplifting optimism of humanity like David Dondero, and his ability to shine a light on the human condition (his own included) is inspiring. Dondero is best known for his narrative tales of America. Having spent most of his life on the road, Dave uses his staggering lyrical talent to paint tales of life in the US of A through clever word play and sarcastic humor (as represented in the album title) about some of life’s most sensitive subjects. Simple Love is a poignant collection of songs woven with sentimentality, contempt, humor, and lust. The Houston Chronicle exclaimed: "DAVID DONDERO is this generation's Townes Van Zandt, a peripatetic tumbleweed casting across the country's highways and dirt roads searching for truth and love. His reedy tenor shuffles through clever verbal forays, over ragamuffin folk, brightened by Dondero's road-wizened stoicism." With DRUNKEN BARN DANCE: acoustic-driven songs which incorporate footstomps, well-timed sleigh bells, hints of ambient distortion and the occasional harmonic soundscape ... It's warm and willful; part back-porch melancholy, part open-road longing.
