Dawes On World Cafe

  • Listen:
    Dawes on World Cafe The rootsy and lyrical rock style of L.A. band Dawes has had a hold on charmed fans for nearly a decade. They're back with a new album, called Passwords, and lead singer Taylor Goldmsith talks with host Talia Schlanger about writing the new songs, and the minor medical emergency that inspired one of them. Plus, we'll hear about his experience climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with his fiancé, actress Mandy Moore. And Dawes perform live. On the next World Cafe.
Songwriting and musicianship aside, one of the things fans latch on to is that this band feels like a good hang.
People who love the band Dawes really love the band Dawes. Songwriting and musicianship aside, I think one of the things fans latch on to is that this is a band that feels like a good hang. The band's current lineup includes Taylor Goldsmith, along with his brother Griffin on drums, Wylie Gelber on bass; and Lee Pardini on keys. Whether you listen to its records on long car rides or in college dorm rooms or in dive bars or at wedding receptions, Dawes feels like good company. And as you'll hear today, lead singer Taylor truly is good company.
