Dawes Essentials

Dawes Essentials

Los Angeles' Dawes truly live in a Laurel Canyon state of mind, where it's eternally sundown at the beach and there's always a friend nearby to join in rich harmony. The group broke through as part of the folk-music revival of the late '00s, proving their bona fides with songs like the golden organ drawl of "That Western Skyline" and the widescreen strum of "When My Time Comes." But Dawes have shown that their definition of “folk” is elastic, expanding their focus to include Tom Petty-worthy rock 'n' roll (“Most People”) and even Beck-like funk (“When the Tequila Runs Out”).
