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.

Justin Townes Earle and Dawn Landes recently collaborated on a song called “Do I Ever Cross Your Mind.” He’s also getting some unexpected attention as one of GQ’s most stylish men in the world, up against the likes of Johnny Depp and LeBron James. Eh?
