One of New York's favorite cabaret artists is a transgender warrior who for years performed as the seasoned-salty lounge singer Kiki DuRayne. Bond's theatrical streak reshapes itself on this collection: the songs form a parallel narrative to Joan Didion's novel Play It As It Lays, tapping into its themes of isolation and grim self-reliance through songs by tough storytellers like Mark Eitzel, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell. Thomas "Doveman" Bartlett's piano arrangements support Bond's intense soliloquys. — Ann Powers, NPR Music

The material comprising Dendrophile reveals the variety of Bond’s artistic passions and is greatly influenced by early `70s folk-pop variety records by artists that defied genre and could easily go from protest songs to jazz standards, from adapting a traditional folk song to singing cabaret music. Features original compositions and select covers of Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins/Joan Baez, and Exuma.

Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), plays piano, serves as bandleader, and produced the album with help from Pat Dillett (David Byrne, Caetano Veloso, Laurie Anderson).

Like V.'s shows, the album finds Bond surrounded by a significant cross-section of NYC talent: Sam Amidon, Rob Moose, Shahzad Ismaily, Brad Albetta, Doug Wieselman; It also features singers Beth Orton and Dawn Landes, among others
