Australian Tour July 2008
Via her album, Fireproof, & the single, Bodyguard, Kentucky native Dawn Landes is proving to be more than just someone to watch. An astonishing mix of the urban and the rural, this definitely isn’t the sound of yet another singer-guitarist plucked from the nearest coffee house & plonked down in front of a microphone.
Having worked as a recording engineer for the likes of Ryan Adams & Phillip Glass, Landes is more than familiar with the ins & outs of the studio, & has delivered a lovingly crafted & beautifully textured album that melds folk, country & indie without contradiction. The synergy of lulling acoustic guitar, softly strummed banjo & mandolin, & plenty of spooky paraphernalia, along with Landes’s gorgeous voice, combine to deliver a record of delicious, ghostly wonder.
After touring overseas markets as a guest of the likes of Jose Gonzalez, Suzanne Vega, Midlake, Shannon Wright, Feist & Andrew Bird, Dawn Landes visits Australia for the first time this July for two shows only.
