J.S. Ondara’s life story was already pretty improbable, and since he recently released his outstanding debut album Tales of America and was asked by Neil Young to go on tour with him, it has only become even more improbable. Six years ago, 26-year-old Ondara was still living in Kenya, where he dreamt of a career as Bob Dylan. Only problem was: he didn’t have enough money to buy a guitar. A plane ticket to the US was in it at some point, and once he arrived, he almost literally threw himself at a career in music. Fast forward to 2019, when Rolling Stone called him “an invigorating new voice in American folk music”, and it’s not just the legendary magazine that feels that way.
