With roots in both Louisville, Kentucky, and Branson, Missouri, Dawn Landes has been attracting ardent fans and critical acclaim since entering New York’s music scene in 2000. Along the way, she has collaborated and toured with Sufjan Stevens, Justin Townes Earle, Feist, Andrew Bird and Norah Jones. Dawn is known for creating music for albums, movies, and television that crosses folk, rock, and alternative genres. She put roots down in her new home of Nashville in the spring of 2017.

Through four full-length albums, Dawn Landes has blazed her own path with songs that
are as fresh as they are timeless. Still, there’s no mistaking that strains of Nashville
reside in her voice and in her musical soul, and now, with her fifth album, Landes is
finally bringing them to centre stage.

“Meet Me At The River” is Landes’ self-described “Nashville record,” and she has
assured its pedigree by enlisting the production skills of Fred Foster, the Country Music
Hall of Fame member who played a pivotal role in the careers of Dolly Parton, Roy
Orbison, and Kris Kristofferson.

JF Robitaille & Lail Arad
A new collaboration between London-based singer-songwriter Lail Arad and Montreal’s JF Robitaille. After striking up a musical correspondence they went on a tour of Italy, which led to some co-writing, which led to recording, which led to international radio-play, which led to 42 dates across the UK, Europe and India, which led right back to the studio, which led to The Photograph — which will feature on their forthcoming duo album.
