Dawes - Live on 89.3 The Current 


When I moved to the States, one of the first concerts I saw in Minneapolis was at the Varsity Theatre to see California Folk-Rockers, Dawes.  I was immediately hooked by their honest, welcoming sound and lyrics from the soul. Their sound has since been imprinted on my memory of living in America.  

A year later, upon the release of their 3rd album "Stories Don't End", Dawes returned to The Twin Cities, to perform live in the UBS Forum at the studios of 89.3 The Current.  I got a call from Nate Ryan to help shoot the performance.  It was definitely one of those moments when I asked myself "Should my job be this fun?". Thankfully it is. I had a lot of fun meeting and shooting the band. Nice to see down to earth guys making great music.  Here is the featured song from the performance "From a Window Seat".
