Dawes sprung from the ashes of the band Simon Dawes, as lead singer and guitarist Taylor Goldsmith steered his new group into more country-rock territory, emulating the Laurel Canyon sound of the early 1970’s. Their debut release North Hills, prompted Rolling Stone to call them “the most promising purveyors of new-school country folk.” They bring their throwback sound to the KXT Afternoon Show with Joe Kozera before their show at the Cavern that evening.
