Influenced by the gentle acoustic style and rich vocal harmonies of the Laurel Canyon sound (Crosby, Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell) as well as the shambling, romanticized Americana of The Band, Dawes has built a loyal following with their vintage-influenced aesthetic. The group, formed in Los Angeles and centered around lead singer/songwriter Taylor Goldsmith, initially broke through in 2011 with sophomore album Nothing Is Wrong, which drew critical praise. They’ve continued to garner chart accolades, including topping the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart with 2015’s All Your Favorite Bands and 2016’s We’re All Gonna Die. Dawes also scored a number of Top Ten Adult Alternative Songs hits, including “Things Happen” (2015), “When the Tequila Runs Out” (2016), and “Who Do You Think You’re Talking To?” (2020). Along with their chart success, Dawes have retained their experimental energy, embracing an ’80s adult contemporary vibe on 2020’s Goodluck with Whatever and dipping into jazzy, Steely Dan-style rock on 2022’s Misadventures of Doomscroller.
A Message From Dawes:
We wanted a musical drama.
An ensemble cast, with linked arms, kicking highly.
A transcription of a band meeting we haven’t even had yet…
A spotlight on a spotlight:
This one goes out to all the solos BETWEEN the solos.
To the Ands of 3… AND 4.
8 Legs and 8 arms, in a room, stretching deeper than they ever knew they could.
The Intros have Outros.
The Outros have Bridges.
Don’t like the Jam? ……. Just wait five minutes.
Like turtle doves in a snow storm, Fate has brought us together again with Producer and long time collaborator Jonathon Wilson. And for this, we are forever grateful.
our 8th studio record to date. Unless you don’t count the first seven, then this would be our DEBUT RECORD!
We left quite a mess out there, and if each person reading this picks up just one piece of trash on their way out…
Then we’ll leave this planet more beautiful than the day we found it
