Conor Oberst IS Bright Eyes. I have never had the luck to see him, but from what I'm told, it's a beautiful experience. Conor sits in a chair with an acoustic guitar, drunk, going crazy as his voice screams and wails and whispers of love.

Conor started out at the ripe young age of 12. After completing his first recording, he attempted to sell his sole copy for $25. He has played shows since he age 12, which is an astonishment to many. In 1995 (at 14 or 15 of age), he formed the band Commander Venus. His lyrics are absolutely remarkable for such a young man, and combined with the unpolished scratches of guitar and other musical instruments, it makes for potent concoction of love and its searing pains.
