‘Spot light on a Song’
A beautiful morning to rise to. Still on a high from the Wilco show I saw a few weeks ago. The final two songs played were my very favorites! When does that ever happen? In all the excitement of the show, I lost a week to share the other special show I saw the same week so I must rewind.
Dawes, one of my very favorite bands, made a visit to Seattle to promote their fifth record releasing today. They like to promote it at the greatest record store in the country, Easy Street. I wouldn’t miss a visit. Dawes is important to me because their song ‘Rest Easy’, a bonus track from their second album, was the only song I covered and made part of my first album. You can listen to it here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/abbyk
Dawes is composed of brothers Taylor (guitars and vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums). Dawes has been described as having a Laurel Canyon sound derived from artists such as Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Young.
Dawes is Taylor’s middle name, also his grandfather’s first name. Adds a special touch I think.
This live clip was taken from their 2014 visit to W. Seattle’s greatest record store. And I was there one foot away to capture it. Enjoy!
Strum a little….
