Dawes After a year of state-wide touring, Dawes lives for the stage. Pouring every ounce of their work into soul-bearing and gritty live performances, they show no signs of slowing down... and it has been over a year since the release of their debut!

Dawes' blend of classic 70's folk-rock with contemporary flair made "North Hills" an instant hit, quickly pushing them onto everyone's radar. Ultimately this clever mixture of styles manages to simultaneously evoke a sense of nostalgia and refreshing anticipation. It is difficult to resist Taylor Goldsmith's lyrical prowess, which is often backed by elegant folk-pop harmonies. Taylor's powerful voice wavers between reflectional sorrow and bursting optimism and his quiet confidence carries with it an incredible sense of maturity and wisdom. And while the vocals and lyrics are central to their music, Griffin Goldsmith (Tayler's younger brother), Wylie Gelber and Alex Casnoff solidly flesh out their intimate and timeless Cali-roots sound with carefully crafted arrangments that often garner comparisons to Neil Young.

The L.A. based band, Dawes is in town for a show at the T.L.A. this Thursday night, November 4, 2010
