Dawes are evolving into one of America’s most beloved young bands working today. Having already toured with the likes of Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne and Mumford & Sons, among others, and gracing the stages of the country’s most prestigious festivals, Dawes’ appeal crosses all age barriers and has no boundaries. The band recently wrapped up a successful spring/summer headlining tour in support of their latest album, the acclaimed Stories Don’t End. Watch the video for their newest single, “Most People,” which features highlights from the band’s time on the road, on YouTube.com or CMT.com.

To make Stories Don’t End, the four members of Dawes – Taylor Goldsmith (lead vocals, guitar), Wylie Gelber (bass), Tay Strathairn (keyboard), Griffin Goldsmith (drums, vocals) – traveled to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and worked with producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones), resulting in their most diverse and accomplished record yet. Both Relix and American Songwriter put the band on their recent covers and Rolling Stone called the album “quietly gripping” and “deceptively gleaming.” Paste noted that it’s full of “their most intricate music to date, full of colorful detours and surprising instrumental flavors” and the NY Daily News declared that it “both recalls a classic era and speaks to any.”
