Auguste Arthur "A. A." Bondy, also known as Scott Bondy, is an American alternative folk artist from Birmingham, Alabama.

Early life[edit]

Bondy lived in Mountain Brook, a suburb of Birmingham, where he attended Mountain Brook High School.

Career[edit]

Bondy is the former lead singer and guitarist in the rock band Verbena, which he founded in the early 1990s. After the band broke up in 2003, he recorded his debut solo album, American Hearts, in a barn near his home in the Catskill mountains in Palenville, upstate New York.[1] The album, released in 2007, marked a shift in musical direction towards a more traditional and minimalist folk sound,[2][3] with Bondy playing mostly acoustic guitar and harmonica.

His second album, When the Devil's Loose, was recorded in Mississippi, and released in September 2009.

Bondy released his third album, Believers, on September 13, 2011.
