Tow'rs with special guests Dawn & Hawkes and A Boy and His Kite
Dawn & Hawkes
Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes formed Dawn and Hawkes after a chance meeting on an Austin dance floor. 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 and international touring performances.
Acoustic Guitar hails the musicality of their first full-length, Yours and Mine, as “Impeccable vocal harmonies and instrumentation” and Huffington Post summarizes “Transcendent alternative-folk — you will find yourself craving more from this amazing, dynamic duo.”
While touring, the duo stored their possessions and lived on the road, drawing inspiration from American deserts and mountains, to the South Australian coast while self-producing their second full-length album, The Other Side. The Austin American Statesman calls it “sweet folk-rock – instantly appealing tunes – rooted in the singer songwriter heyday of the early 1970’s, they also fit well into the modern-day indie-folk revival.”
Summarized by Performer Magazine with “songs of introspective bliss, this singer-songwriter team genuinely helps the listener feel the spirit of life.” In a time when the world seems more divided than ever, Dawn and Hawkes celebrates hope, empathy and finding our common humanity.
