ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Condos combines the ardent songwriting of Jeff Buckley, the edgy, yet soothing vocal sensibility of Stevie Wonder, and the lyrical prowess of artists like Jeff Tweedy to create an unsullied amalgam of vibrant soulful crooning and poignant eclectic rock.

Indeed, the music of this Nashville-based 21-year-old wunderkind is not what one has come to expect from today’s often predictable singer/songwriter. As evinced in his upcoming LP, Smoking City, which is slated for summer release, Condos is not limited by conventions of sonic and artistic typicality. Combining elements of alternative pop/rock, Americana folk, and a touch of soul, one would presume his music alone to be sufficiently unique. However, it is Condos’ voice that separates him from even the most ambitious of today’s artists. It contains a yearning, a bittersweet catharsis preceded only by lo-fi folk god Devendra Banhart and Buckley himself. With his perfect falsetto uttering intensely literate poetry, Condos’ voice has what Coldplay fans live for.

Familiar, but somehow unlike anything you have ever heard, David Condos has already taken his unorthodox musical approach to cities all over the U.S. Mostly in the north and southeast, these shows have stretched from Dallas to D.C., with many stops in between. Future touring aspirations only go taller. Following the mid-summer release of Smoking City, a handful of special acoustic performances are planned, while a renovated full-band show will be unveiled this fall.

Writing songs since the age of ten, David Condos’ music is only now beginning to reach its full potential. This is, in part due to the recent help of producer/mixer/engineer Tom Laune (Mat Kearney, R.E.M., Bruce Springsteen). After striking a production agreement last fall, they embarked upon the 4-month creative process that became Smoking City. With the instrumental talent of drummer David Grant, guitarist Ian Leach, and an assortment of studio moguls, Condos has crafted a mature and highly listenable sound, a delicate balance of genres that transcends virtually any listening demographic and manages to catch every ear wise enough to listen.

I'm hooked for life!
I have to tell you, I was highly anticipating this CD and for all the right reasons; take-me-away melodies, haunting falsetto, and just the right amount of musical ebb and flow. From the first time I heard David's music promoted on myspace.com, I was an instant fan. I have a small core of favorite artists and I can honestly say that David has wedged his way in. I am excited for this fellow's career and plan to promote him in any way I can. Kudos David and I hope to hear more from you.

David's music is caught somewhere in the jungle of influence left by Jeff Buckle
I'm writing this fresh from listening repeatedly to David Condos stunning album "Smoking City". The 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter exudes star quality, and the infinitely listenable first single from his album, entitled "I Should Be Lost Without You", ought to be screaming from radios and iPods everywhere quite soon. Normally, I'm not even a fan of this kind of music. I just hear too much of it. However, David rises so far above the cut that I would have felt like I had done a great injustice to overlook something this good.
David's music is caught somewhere in the jungle of influence left by Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright, complimentary to both of those but more in a direct line with recently popular songs by Coldplay, Aqualung and Keane. Condos has been blessed by a voice fueled by soul, something so empassioned that one can't help but be shaken to hear him sing. With production duties helmed by Tom Laune (who has worked with R.E.M., Mat Kearney, and Bruce Springsteen), the end result is something so pure it's hard to imagine that it all stems from the hard work of one young man who is obviously poised for great things. Something tells me I should expect the response to this single to be nothing less than explosive.
