David Dondero and the ENTIRE STATE OF FLORIDA

l_fe03d83bf7014bdc6ba98018812b74f4.jpgDavid Dondero’s upcoming tour with a full band (first time with a band in five years!) kicked off this weekend!

Dave’s band dubbed “The Entire State of Florida” consists of Scott Selwood (wurlitzer, keys, Saturday Looks Good to Me), Eric Nail (bass , ex-Sunbrain), Ben Bogan (drums, ex-Woodenhorse), Johnny Pfirman (pedal steel/guitar, Radar Radar).

His most recent album, Simple Love, was released this past August. Full dates are available after the jump.

From the acclaimed songwriting troubadour David Dondero comes Simple Love, David’s second release for Team Love Records, and the follow up to the 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.
