Dawes

California-based roots rock band Dawes were formed in the Los Angeles suburb of North Hills by brothers Taylor Goldsmith and Griffin Goldsmith (lead vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), Wylie Gelber (bass), and Alex Casnoff (guitar). They were previously in the band Simon Dawes, but after Blake Mills left the group, the changed the name (and added Casnoff, who was soon replaced by Tay Strathairn). Unlike the more intense indie rock sound they had as Simon Dawes, Dawes were heavily influenced by the gentle, acoustic-based musical trappings and rich vocal harmony of the Laurel Canyon sound (Crosby, Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell), as well as by the shambling, romanticized Americana of the Band. After connecting with producer Jonathan Wilson, the group began participating in informal jam sessions at Wilson's house with Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, the Heartbreakers' Benmont Tench, and the Black Crowes' Chris Robinson. The loose feel of these get-togethers informed the group's aptly titled 2009 debut North Hills. The album was recorded in Laurel Canyon live to analog tape, which lent Dawes' recorded sound an authentically vintage vibe. The band's second album, 2011's Nothing Is Wrong had a similar feel and peaked at number 23 on the Billboard album charts. That same year, the band had the unique experiences of playing at the Occupy Wall Street protests and appearing as themselves on a prime-time network television show (Parenthood). Stories Don't End, the group's hotly anticipated third studio album, arrived in 2013. ~ Pemberton Roach, Rovi

Bobonnit with your Jackson Browne comment:

So what? They're influenced, yes, but they're original enough that they don't have to stoop to intentional copying.

Our 18 year old son told us about this band. Now Dawes is a main station we listen to on Pandora. Reminds us a little bit of Jackson Brown. Great sound. Also like the music that fits into this category

Just watched an ACL episode taped and said to my bride, wow, They must be Jackson Browne fans, then heard that they never heard of him in their early years. A sound is a sound, go Dawes!
Well, first, I'm Bob, age 70 (2-7--44). I only LOVE those who can LOVE me back. But I really LIKE my hot red coupe, the N.Y. Yankees, including Yogi Berra, bagels, netflix and pandora. Now, about DAWES, never heard of them till just seeing them on Austin City Limits. I really like Jackson Browne, the Kinks/Ray Davies, but I didn't hear any connection to them while watching/lis t e n i n g to DAWES. Taylor Goldsmith is a MAJOR talent for playing guitar, singing and writing. PEACE to YOU and others who
Love the sound - a little Ray Davies.

I can relate to being seriously obsessed with this band. I have every album and can't until the next one.JKL
I'm seriously obsessed to an unreasonably point, not just the music but the guys themselves. They're awesome
ndchilly
Great station!
Most people don't talk enough about the love in their hearts...
Beautiful lyrics, gorgeous song writing, fabulous musicianship .

Dawes is the best band ever!!!!!!
This band does sound like Jackson Browne which is why I don't care for them. A little Jackson Browne goes a loooooooong way and I don't need any copycat artists too
I love Time Spent in Los Angeles. They sound like the bands my father used to listen to when I was growing up. Love them.
Heard about this band on VH1 bands you ought to know. Super laid back sounds. Is it safe to place them in the indie-folk genre?
A Little Bit of Everything Best song I have heard in awhile, besides Middle Brothers Blood and Guts.
I just decided to comment that these guys sound SO much like Jackson Browne and to my surprise I came to comment and Cliff Karten the first comment on my screen mentioned Jackson Browne -- I agree with you, Mr. Karten. I am SO excited about this band as well!!! Thank God for the MusicMakers! ! !
I have been a die-hard Jackson Browne fan since the sixties, I haven't been so excited about a band since, until being turned on to the Dawes
I don't get REO Speedwagon, I do think Band of Horses sounds like REO Speedwagon though
these guys ROCKED Meadowgrass Festival!!!

Reo Speedwagon? C'mon
Little punks cool keep it up
I love this band ^.^ most obvious comment in the world, Ik but what else is there to say?
joshmdugger
Joni Mitchell? Try Jackson Browne. These guys manage a new, refreshed, non-derivati v e sound that just echoes the best of Jackson Browne. I think he's even credited with backing vocals on this album.
Sounds pretty good. Gonna catch them open for Bob Dylan on April 13th.
reminds me of REO Speedwagon
I love this band and this song. I heard it every morning on vh1 jump start. I love the way they sound......s o u n d s like stuff my dad used to listen to.
Good Stuff
tmbrwlvs
Like the bands music. Shame they were affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street goons.....
i saw them in bristol tn they went on before Mumford and sons! Dawes is an amayzing band!
rswartzendru b e r 8
just saw them in Dixon, IL GREAT
Saw Dawes by accident when they opened up for Alison Krauss in 2011. They were quite good & it was nice to see young artists catch a break like that.
Saw these guys open for Allison Kraus+Union Station last summer. Had never heard of them, but they did a nice job. Now have them in my Pandora rotation.

Alex Casnoff Is no longer in Dawes, and also he didnt play guitar he played keyboards... b u t still Dawes is an incredibly great band, understated in every category, Taylor Goldsmith is an unreal songwriter and he is only 26! The Harmonies, the drums, the bass, and guitar in every song are fantastic, they are old school and let the instruments speak for themselves, they are a great band and will be around for a while!
an important band...Just all around
wonderful.
Song brought me to tears. So glad I heard this (and I guess that's what I get for adding variety that includes a buttload of Jackson Browne songs!)
Israel Nebeker lead singer of blind pilot
he does sound like jackson browne, never thought of that...anoth e r guy who sounds like jackson browne is the lead singer of blind pilot and they're really good too
kroeder319
Was just listening to Jackson, and yes, they said like him.
chrisbening
I like this song. Does anyone else think it sounds kinda Jackson Browne-ish? Does anyone else even know who Jackson Browne is?
Lyrics,rhyth m s , v o i c e s , spoke to me on the way home. A little bit of everything, was the song. Great Band! Had to rush home to see what else there was.

I was first exposed to Dawes about a year ago with North Hills. I saw them perform at Newport Blues with Deer Tick this summer. I was thrilled to see them do that impromptu show that weekend while I was attending the Folk Fest. We caught Dawes in Boston too in late October with Blitzen Trapper.

Middle Brother is fantastic and is a side project made up of the lead singers of Deer Tick (John McCauly), Delta Spirit (Matt Vasquez), and Dawes (Taylor Goldsmith).

Love Dawes' Laurel Canyon sou

I never get tired of listening to these guys. Thank goodness for public radio here in Dallas and the exposure they afford groups like this.
