A disciple of Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen, and The Verve, thus the Philadelphia-born, Los Angeles-based Mohawk-ed and tattooed troubadour Mondo Cozmo was born. Think Dylan fronting Oasis with Beck making the beats. Mondo Cozmo has the attitude of the Manchester bands of the 90s…working class, honest, inspirational, cautiously hopeful, and socially observational. He hasn’t wasted any time positioning himself as the top contender for the best new rock act of the year.

This past year Mondo Cozmo released his debut album, ‘Plastic Soul‘, which features his #1 viral song “Shine” and recent single “Automatic,” two songs which have been resonating across the country.   This weekend, he’ll be performing at the Barton Springs stage in ACL at 1:00pm. Is there a better way to begin your Saturday?
