The music speaks for itself, but people talk:
"This is the sound of a man on fire. Smart, funny and honestly out of his mind; but he comes back long enough to sing about it. One of the best singer/songwriters I've ever heard."
- Bob Boilen, NPR
"He has a terrific ear and eye for simple detail, for spinning songs out of the mundane just as deftly as standards like love and loss."
- David Bevan, Pitchfork
"Dondero is a brilliant storyteller and poet. His searching melodies and distinctive voice are heartbreakingly beautiful and uplifting."
- Robin Hilton, NPR
"Dondero writes folk songs that speak to people who don't think they like folk songs."
- Justin Berton, East Bay Express
"Liv Carrow‘s introspective songs draw from the rich history of the bardic template to weave poetic wordplay with captivating melodies, fingerstyle guitar playing and a clear, direct voice that can hush a chattering room."
