Be sure to check out the brand new music video from Dawes below. The video for “Time Spent In Los Angeles” was directed by Sam Jones (Foo Fighters, Wilco, etc.), and was filmed in the Hollywood Hills earlier this summer. As the band’s current single, “Time Spent In Los Angeles” showcases the band’s talent for penning heartfelt lyrics that touch upon the feeling of constant movement and endless fleeting moments spent from time on the road.

A self described “American rock ‘n’ roll band,” Dawes is comprised of four talented friends (among them, two brothers) – Taylor Goldsmith singer/guitarist, Griffin Goldsmith on drums, Tay Strathairn on the keyboard and bassist Wylie Gelber. Nothing Is Wrong is the follow-up to the band’s 2009 debut, North Hills (featuring their breakout anthem, “When My Time Comes”), an extraordinary record that was released quietly and soon became regarded among critics and fans across the country as a classic and must-own favorite. A collection of songs that expertly builds upon the template laid by North Hills, Nothing Is Wrong sees Dawes displaying strong growth and evolution while still manifesting their distinctive, unforgettable voice with their modern Americana sound incorporating warm guitars in gorgeous modern folk arrangements.
“The arrangements are all vintage, the guitar leads hot, and fraternal harmonies of drummer Griffin and leader Taylor Goldsmith are gorgeous.” – Rolling Stone
“After two years of fine-tuning their live sound, all of the members of Dawes have become master musicians not only individually, but as a collective.” – Paste Magazine
Recently named the VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist for September, Dawes has been on tour since May in support of Nothing Is Wrong. Having recently played a handful of European shows supporting Jackson Browne, the Los Angeles natives just finished a run opening for Alison Krauss & Union Station, and will soon embark on a fall co-headlining tour with Blitzen Trapper beginning on October 7 in Petaluma, CA. More details on the upcoming tour, as well as a free, exclusive digital EP download, can be found on the band’s official Web site.
