Taylor Goldsmith, songwriter of Dawes, hit the mark with this year’s collaborative release ‘Middle Brother’. He, his brother, and bandmates have been pretty busy themselves. The band is currently backing Robbie Robertson (The Band) at his request for his 2011 release. “How to Become Clairvoyant”. Anticipation for “”Nothing is Wrong”, the sophomore release, couldn’t be higher for this Los Angeles folk rock band.
John J. McCauley III (Deer Tick), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), and Matt Vasquez (Delta Spirit) have no problems writing quality songs of their own for their own bands. Each songwriter having found a little touch of respect and success touring together on and off the past 2 years brought them together for an old fashioned folk-n-roll hootenanny called, ‘Middle Brother.’
