Sonic Byways with Jamie Lynn

Dawes, and the Legacy of the Laurel Canyon Sound

May 6, 2013

Every now and then, it feels good to cue up, wind down and get lost in the lyrics.  The band Dawes is deep and has an established sound: that nostalgic, sunshine-infused, Southern California-folk kind of rock and roll.  From Joni Mitchell to CSN, Laurel Canyon has long been a creative enclave, and Dawes - hailing from greater Los Angeles - brings some new energy to the neighborhood.  Throw in jam partner Conor Oberst and tour-mate Jackson Browne,  and we've got ourselves an episode!  It's a feel good hour of Sonic Byways, now playing around your electronic campfire.
