Singer-songwriter, Dawn Landes has had an incredibly busy 2014, kicking off the year in London performing and recording with the Aurora Orchestra and releasing her latest album, Bluebird to much acclaim. Landes then hit the road supporting The Autumn Defense on the East Coast, Bryan Ferry on the West Coast, the SXSW Music Conference, and Europe in the spring. She performed on WNYC Soundcheck, accompanied the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center, and was featured on tribute albums for both Bob Dylan and Harry Nilsson.
Landes spent the summer playing select Midwest markets and festivals, and continued to work on her musical about Tori Murden McClure, the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean, which will be produced by the Public Theater in New York.
Landes recently premiered a video for her cover of the Roxy Music classic “More Than This” via Entertainment Weekly in conjunction with a second leg of North American touring with Bryan Ferry. The video is a shot-by-shot parody of the famed Lost In Translation karaoke scene with Landes playing both Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray.
Dawn Landes released her acclaimed fourth full-length record, ‘Bluebird’, earlier this year on Western Vinyl. Landes will return to the UK later this month for a series of live shows – see below
