Dawes

With their lyrical, highly literate West Coast sound centered on lead singer/songwriter Taylor Goldsmith, California’s Dawes established themselves at the forefront the roots rock scene after emerging in 2009. 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 built a loyal following with their vintage-influenced aesthetic. Dawes initially broke through with their sophomore album, 2011’s Nothing Is Wrong, which drew critical praise and landed at number 18 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart. That same year, they also found themselves playing alongside legendary singer/songwriter Jackson Browne at a highly publicized Occupy Wall Street protest. Since then, they continued to win accolades and commercial success, including twice topping the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart with 2015’s All Your Favorite Bands and 2016’s We’re All Gonna Die. 

Dawes were formed in the Los Angeles suburb of North Hills by brothers Taylor Goldsmith (lead vocals/guitar) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), Blake Mills (guitar), and Wylie Gelber (bass). Initially, they called themselves Simon Dawes, an amalgamation of singer Goldsmith’s and guitarist Mills’ middle names. However, after Mills left the group, they changed the name (and added guitarist Alex Casnoff, who was soon replaced by Tay Strathairn). Unlike the more intense indie rock sound they had as Simon Dawes, Dawes quickly shifted to a more rootsy, ’60s and ’70s style of guitar-based rock.
