COVER IMAGES & PRESS RELEASE TEXT
Oct 2017: Somewhere between the bustling streets of Madrid, the tranquil suburbs of Dallas, and his home studio in the Echo Park hillside lies the sound of J. Bonigno, a refreshing stroke Los Angeles indie scene. On his second full-length record, Dos, the multi-instrumentalist reflects upon the duality of his upbringing-split between his family across the vibrant towns of Spain and the charming serenity of the Texas plains. ‘Dos’ takes on the format of a double EP - the first five tracks deliver punchy lyrical slack-rock reminiscent of a Courtney Barnett, and the back five 5 songs transitioning to piano centric ballads, full of reflective, moody chords that recall the likes of solo contemporaries Tobias Jesso Jr. and Andy Shauf. "Dos" brings to light a personal account of growing older as an American immigrant in 2017.
Accolades: After 5 consecutive years of SXSW appearances, multiple releases with mathy rockers Sea Engine, and years playing around the Austin indie circuit, J.Bonigno released the critically acclaimed DIY pop-rock Life Gets In The Way in 2015. Following a move to Los Angeles and joining the ranks of the iconic tastemakers KCRW, J.Bonigno has clearly hit his creative stride on Dos - and his solo career is just getting started.
