Dawn & Hawkes
Genre: Indie Rock/ Americana
Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes met when he crossed an Austin barroom floor and asked her to dance. The first time they sang together they found a sound Texas Monthly calls “undeniably intimate”. Their initial duo effort, Golden Heart, climbed to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landed at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums kicking off a whirlwind of cross-country touring performances with influential artists Alison Krauss & Dan Tyminsky, Patty Griffin, Old 97s, Robert Earl Keen, and showcases at festivals like Austin City Limits, Folk Alliance, AmericanaFest, South By Southwest and TEDx. Acoustic Guitar hails the musicality of their first full-length, Yours and Mine, as “Impeccable vocal harmonies and instrumentation” Huffington Post summarizes “Transcendent alternative-folk — you will find yourself craving more from this amazing, dynamic duo.” The duo stored their possessions and lived on the road, drawing inspiration from American deserts and mountains to the South Australian coast while navigating a shared journey through mortality, grief, the after-life and compassion for differing perspectives. Upon returning to Austin, they set upon building a new home and recording a new album, The Other Side.
