PERHAPS YOU KNOW A.A BONDY BETTER THAN YOU THINK…
Making his maiden voyage to our shores this January, A.A. Bondy. (the initials stand for August Arthur), hails from Birmingham, Alabama.
A grunge disciple originally via the critically adored alt-rock outfit Verbena, Bondy chose the solo route once Verbena disbanded in 2003 and in 2007 released his debut solo album ‘American Hearts’ which showed a marked change of musical direction mixing folk, Americana and swampy blues into a lethal concoction all of his own.
A second album, ‘When the Devils Loose’, followed in 2009 cementing Bondy’s abilities as a songwriter and featured the tracks ‘A Slow Parade’, ‘Mightiest of Guns’, ‘False River’ and the title track, which appeared in major TV shows Bones, One Tree Hill, House and Packed To The Rafters.
Most recently, A.A. Bondy has been spotted on the Triple J Hit-List with ‘The Heart Is Willing’, the first single from his new album ‘Believers’.
And now we here in Australia get to experience what all the fuss has been about when A.A.Bondy visits (in full three piece band mode) for Sydney Festival (at The Famous Spiegeltent) and for club shows in Melbourne.
“It seems like there’s a certain quality that you have to have to be a singer-songwriter in the ilk of A.A. Bondy and be able to pull it off, especially live. It’s something that doesn’t come from merely being a good songwriter, but from life experience. It’s what some might call “authenticity,” and Bondy certainly has it” – onethirtybpm.com
