Critically Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter Conor Oberst Comes to the Taft Theatre


2019 has been a packed year thus far for Conor Oberst. Dedicated fans of the Nebraska bred singer-songwriter have been following his journey breaking into the indie rock industry since the late nineties when Oberst formed the band Bright Eyes. His writing accolades on albums such as Lifted and I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning were major when it came to putting Oberst on the map as a songwriter with a force to be reckoned with. In fact, Rolling Stone dubbed him "Songwriter of the Year in 2008." Oberst wrote and produced five solo albums under his name as well solidifying his place as an indie singer-songwriter icon.
