American Roots-Rock Band
American Roots-Rock Band


Hailing from California, the West Coast band Dawes began in 2009, and has since established itself at the forefront of the Americana roots-rock scene, building a loyal following with their vintage-influenced aesthetic and profound lyrics and social commentary. Drawing influence from rock classics like the Band, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Young, Dawes’s sound has a vintage feel with its gentle acoustics and vocal harmonies. Dawes most recently released its sixth studio album, Passwords, in June of 2018. The band claims that Passwords is a record “about the modern world: the relationships that fill it, the politics that divide it, the small victories and big losses that give it shape.”
