Marty Duda's artist of the week

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 21 October 2015

Dawes is an American roots/rock band based in Los Angeles who have been closely identified with the Laurel Canyon sound of the early 1970s…Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne. The band is led by singer-songwriter Taylor Goldsmith and they have released four albums beginning with 2009's North Hills. Their most recent album, All Your Favourite Bands, was produced by Dave Rawlings and finds the band expanding their sound to include elements of jazz and harder rock while still holding true to their initial vibe. Dawes will be performing at Auckland's Tuning Fork this Thursday, part of the venue's annual Americana Festival. There's an interview with Dawes' front man Taylor Goldsmith on Marty's website, 13th Floor
