Dawn Landes, A New Brand Of Folk & Country

Following in the footsteps of traditional folk/country artists and walking along side her contemporaries, Dawn Landes walks a line connecting Patty Griffin, Cat Power and Feist. She has honed her craft in bands like Hem and The Earlies, and also while working as a sound engineer for, among others, Ryan Adams. Her talent, born among the Kentucky bluegrass and nurtured in the concrete and steel of New York and on the road supporting the likes of Juliana Hatfield, Suzanne Vega, Jose Gonzalez, & Feist is ready to shine. Her new album, Fireproof, out now in Europe and due March 4th in the U.S., follows two E.P. releases and a her debut album, dawn's music, all three of which are now through various outlets, including iTunes.

Dawn is winding down her current gig opening for former Drive-By-Trucker, Jason Isbell, and Nashville blues rocker, Will Hoge. The tour rolls through Louisville, Kentucky tonight, February 29, and ends tomorrow night here in Nashville, Tennessee at The Cannery Ballroom. She opens a two week stint through Holland and the U.K. opening for Josh Ritter on March 21.
