This Wednesday, from 6p-8p, tune in to KMNR for this week’s artist feature:

Conor Oberst is best known for his work leading the band Bright Eyes, a staple for moody makeout sessions and serious Millenial philosophers alike. Conor’s poetic lyrics are keen, cynical, and sometimes saccharine. Released independently through their label, Saddle Creek, Bright Eyes have been described as alternativecountry, emo, and just plain terrible.

Last seen promoting their album “The People’s Key” alongside The Mountain Goats in 2011, Bright Eyes has since disbanded. Matthew Oberst, Conor’s brother and business partner, was a Montessori teacher who “basically drank himself to death” in 2016 at 42 years old. Conor Oberst continues to release solo work, and participates in several musical groups. — view on Instagram
