As part of the Laurel Canyon sound, which cites influences such as Crosby, Stills and Nash, Neil Young and many others, American folk rock band Dawes recorded their debut album North Hills in 2009. The album was recorded in a live setting on analog tape, resulting in a sound Rolling Stone magazine called “authentically vintage”. The band took off and released their second album Nothing is Wrong in 2011 and continued touring the U.S.

While the city of Los Angeles has been an inspiration and a home to Dawes, they found themselves traveling east last fall to record their third album Stories Don’t End with newly enlisted producer Jacquire King in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. In their time there, the band yielded a 12-song disc of tremendous sonic and narrative clarity, book-ended by two very different versions of “Just Beneath The Surface.” Stories Don’t End spotlights the group’s maturing skills as arrangers, performers and interpreters who shape the raw material supplied by chief songwriter and lead vocalist Taylor Goldsmith into an artfully concise and increasingly soulful sound.

Shovels and Rope is a two-piece band from Charleston, S.C. that was formed by Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearts in 2010. The group performs harmony driven folk, rock and country songs using two old guitars, a kick drum, a snare, tambourines, harmonicas and a keyboard. They tour constantly as a two-piece band, making as much noise as they can.
