J.S. Ondara releases introspective new video for his track, American Dream

Nigerian born J.S. Ondara has just released an introspective video for his lead single, American Dream off his upcoming debut album. Tales of America. ales of America, due February 1 on Verve Forecast, is an examination of the American Dream from an outsider’s perspective; an introspection on a universal matter. The completely acoustic album was produced by Grammy-nominated Mike Viola (Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis) and recorded at Boulevard Recording and East West Studios in Los Angeles. All lyrics were written by Ondara and the album features collaborations with artists including Andrew Bird, Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes and Joey Ryan of The Milk Carton Kids.

Check out the video here:

We had the pleasure of capturing Ondara’s performance as he is out on tour opening for Lindsey Buckingham. He won over the crowd with his soulful folk rock set. Check out some photos of his set at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
