Dawn Landes Continues Tour In Support Of MEET ME AT THE RIVER

Hailed by American Songwriter as "a new darling of country," Dawn Landes continues to tour in support of her critically acclaimed Yep Roc Records debut Meet Me At The River. Kicking off November 3, at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville with Angel Snow, the eight date run includes co-headline dates with Chris Stills in Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York, Louisville, as well as an opening slot for Mary Chapin Carpenter at the Lincoln Center's Appel Room. She is also slated to perform at Stagecoach 2019. A full list of dates is below.

A self-described "Nashville record," Meet Me At The Riverwas produced by Country Music Hall of Famer Fred Foster (Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, Kris Kristofferson), the 12-song collection features some of Nashville most acclaimed musicians, including 13-time Academy of Country Music drummer of the Year Eddie Bayers, fellow Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie McCoy on harmonica and "From Elvis In Memphis' pianist Bobby Wood. Only sporadically producing for friends like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Ray Price, Meet Me At The Rivermarks the first time that Foster has taken on a new act in years.

Ten Landes-penned songs are featured on the record, which embraces themes of heartbreak ("Why They Name Whiskey After Men"), wanderlust (the insatiably catchy "Traveling") and reckoning with youth ("Southern Girl," "Old Memories"). For a duet on the Landes' original "I Won't Dance," Foster recruited Bobby Bare, who has enjoyed 70 hits on the country charts in a five-decade career. Meet Me At The Riveralso sees Landes reviving a pair of lost gems from folk singer Jimmy Driftwood, a Foster collaborator from the 1960s. His politically-charged "What Is The Color Of The Soul of a Man" feels particularly poignant in Landes' hands, even 55 years after its initial release.

With previous collaborators that include Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Norah Jones, Will Oldham and Andrew Bird, Landes and Foster, despite shaping up as something of a musical odd couple, bring the best of their respective worlds to Meet Me At The River, creating something a more conventional pairing could never touch.

Now a Nashville resident, Landes was raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and Branson, Missouri, and spent years in New York's music scene, where she cultivated her musical gifts not only through performing and songwriting, but also through learn-by-doing production work that eventually led to co-owning a recording studio.
