Dawn Landes, Live Session #66

by oz on February 25, 2010

Dawn Landes

Dawn Landes was requested by a HearYa reader named Tom when we posted a track that featured her with Justin Townes Earle. A few email exchanges later and the session was booked. Customer service. That’s what we’re all about at HearYa World Headquarters. Smiles come free.

Dawn was raised in the music stomping grounds of Branson, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky and is now a resident of New York City. Her career began as an intern in a few studios working with the likes of Phillip Glass, Ryan Adams, Hem, Joseph Arthur, The Earlies and Josh Ritter (whom she later married). Her sound crosses between country, rock and roll, pop and blues with a sweet voice that offsets the occasional dark lyrical themes.

Dawn Landes has a fresh album called Sweetheart Rodeo out now. Pick it up if you dig the sesh.

Thrilled you guys got this while she was in town playing Beat Kitchen. A small crowd, but a great show. Excellent session, Oz.

I’ve never heard this band before (which means nothing, I live in a pop-culture closet), but I really like their tone. Especially the lead singer’s guitar and voice. Way to be 🙂

If im not mistaken i seen her on Craig Ferguson and was instantly a fan. I love the style of their music and depth of the message within the lyrics. I wish they would do a show in the St. Louis area!

Nice work . I am not overly familiar with her work but this sounds great.

Hey Woody, you should stop by a HearYa session sometime. I bet you’d love it!

Just recently stumbled upon this site and I think the collection of artists is, in a word, incredible! Dawn Landes in particular. She sounds like the love child of Chan Marshall and Leslie Feist. Anyway, wondering why her session does not have a download link? My playlist is left wanting!
