Dawn Landes is a Nashville based singer-songwriter whose music you might have heard if you watch The Good Wife, House or Gossip Girl. Along with releasing six albums since 2005 (and an EP inspired by yé-yé, ‘60s French pop music), she’s a frequent collaborator with contemporaries such as Sufjan Stevens, Norah Jones and composer Nico Muhly. She has appeared with the Boston Pops, the NYC Ballet and on the TED main stage.
Perhaps best-known for her precise songwriting and textured vocals on her previous five albums and five EPs that meld elements of indie rock, alt-country, and folk. Songs such as “Try to Make a Fire Burn Again”, “Bodyguard”, and “Straight Lines” have built her reputation as one of our best independent singer-songwriters.
In October 2020 Landes released her new album ROW, a collection of songs from the anticipated musical that tells the incredible true story of Tori Murden McClure, the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean, featuring a collection of songs from her musical ROW and features cameos from Will Oldham, Ben Sollee, Rachel Grimes and other Kentucky-based artists.
The theatrical recording of ROW was released on Audible in April 2021 and the show will have it’s world premiere on stage summer 2021 at the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival.
