Known to be one of the finest songwriters of his vibrant generation, they say Conor Oberst has the voice of an angel and, to his fans, he is like nothing less than a musical deity. They – in this case, are not wrong. He has been writing and releasing songs about self-doubt, artistic ambition and a search for love for half his life and shows no signs of stopping; only signs of improving.
Oberst is the lead singer and writer for the recently reunited indie/folk/pop band Bright Eyes and has led or performed in several other successful bands, like Desaparecidos, Norman Bailer (The Faint), Commander Venus, Park Ave., Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, and Monsters of Folk.
An insightful prolific artist, his widely varied music is compared to that of Bob Dylan, early Paul Simon, Radiohead and Neil Young. And just like them, Oberst is equally comfortable (and simply genius, despite the occasional awkward vibe) when performing slow and easy country, punk, indie rock, lamenting with some post-hardcore or raising you up with something quiet and poetic or loud, catchy pop tunes. The intimate and welcoming StageOne was built for people like Conor Oberst.
“Recently… Mr. Oberst’s songs are less diaristic than they once were. He sings about spiritual quests, ponders technology and slings Dylan-esque conundrums; he’s more circumspect.” – New York Times
“Like anyone on the hunt for meaning, Oberst is compelled by mystical or metaphysical enclaves,” – Pitchfork.com
