David Dondero is a prolific songwriter. Nominated amongst top singer songwriters on NPR in 2016, compared to such as Bob Dylan and Elliot Smith. David is a volcanic musician, always brewing… brewing... with frequent creative explosions in his writing process, leading listeners to countless connections to truth; at times gut wrenching but always authentic expressions of humanity. His latest LP, Immersion Therapy is a covid record. It pulls back the curtain on the pandemic, exposing the mental healthy afflictions many of us suffered. I loved this conversation. 🎙️ enjoy.
Immersion in nature or immersion in something that produces anxiety for therapy. Immersion in music or immersion in crowds full of strangers. This immersive pathway can flood your mind and force a reset or an internal confrontation. What makes you panic? What makes you depressed? What brings you into the light of love and happiness? Are you lost within’ the wrinkles of your mind? Hiding inside yourself with extreme social anxiety? Did the man at the bowling alley just smile and calmly spray the shoes with a disinfectant? Have you unraveled all the way? Spun out into oblivion?
