A.A. Bondy
Deep Sea Diver
Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band

A. A. Bondy is currently on tour with Conor Oberst, “Bright Eyes”, and the Mystic Valley Band. The tour stops this Sunday night, July 12 at Pittsburgh’s Mr. Small’s. Bondy will be performing music from his upcoming sophomore album, When The Devil’s Loose, along with songs from American Hearts.

Bondy previously was in the 90’s band Verbena which often toured under the name, The Alabama Boys Choir. However, Bondy has since migrated from his early alt-rock roots to country twang at Fat Possum Records. Fat Possum is home to blues artists such as T-Model Ford and newer artists such as The Black Keys.

Bondy, was recently highlighted on Spin.com as one of “10 Must-Hear Acts at Sasquatch Fest”. A.A. Bondy is alt-country at it’s finest delivering smooth vocals and soothing melodies. American Hearts consists of stripped-down blues and spiritually-minded lyrics. The upcoming, When The Devil’s Loose, follows with richer sound due in part to the new full band backing Bondy. However, Bondy remains loyal to his true southern roots.

NPR: “a real talent for hard-bitten blues-folk music…as well as an impressive arsenal of sneakily grabby guitar lines”.

Popmatters: “Sparse yet effective, powerful and poignant”

Pitchfork: “…an unfolding tableau…described with a troubadour’s guitar and an obsessive’s mastery of form and musical history”.
