Conor Oberst's upcoming tour and album in May 2014

Musical pioneer Conor Oberst has been writing and experimenting since the age of 10, when he picked up the guitar. At the age of 15, Oberst was already recording in a studio and spending his free time in a record store. With around 20 years of recording experience under his belt, Oberst has been compared to Bob Dylan and cultivated a staunch fanbase. Many people would recognize Oberst’s original band, Bright Eyes, by the popular songs “First Day of My Life” and “Easy/Lucky/Free.”

Oberst’s music transcends several genres, drawing from folk, subtle country twang and indie inspirations. His shaky, low-toned vocals whisper honest and direct lyrics atop many diverse styles of orchestration. The best thing about his music is the unpredictable tempos and instrumentals.

Many of Oberst’s songs delve into themes of love, along with commentary on violence and social problems. This is obvious in the pre-released single, “Hundreds of Ways” for the album Upside Down Mountain to be released on May 20, 2014.

Conor Oberst’s tour to promote his new album begins in early May. Special guests, Dawes, will open the show, as well as play backup for Oberst during the tour.

Go check out Conor Oberst and Dawes at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on May 13. Tickets are only $35 for a live first-listen to one of indie music’s most adored artist’s upcoming album.
