Dawn Landes Releases New Record “Meet Me At The River”


After a wide-ranging career that’s seen her tour the world with Sufjan Stevens, sing with the New York City Ballet, deliver a TED Talk and write her own musicals, Dawn Landes has made a stunning return to her Southern roots with ‘Meet Me At The River.’ A certified cream of Nashville’s musical crop, featuring contributions from six decades of Music City’s most sought after session veterans, the 12-track tour de force is available today via Yep Roc Records.

Dawn recently spoke with Rolling Stone about the new project, and got in-depth with the Nashville Scene about the ’60s country scene that inspired her new sound. Read both pieces here:

Hailed as “top-notch” by The Tennessean and garnering early raves from Rolling Stone for her “pristine vocals” and “murderer’s row of a band,” ‘Meet Me At The River’ is the result of Landes’ unlikely partnership with Fred Foster – the Country Music Hall of Famer credited as an architect of the classic Countrypolitan sound, widely known for his work with Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, and Ray Price.

The result has earned raves in both Nashville and beyond:

“The meeting of Landes and Foster’s minds yield intriguing results that serve the songs beautifully…it has a chance to appeal to classic and contemporary country fans alike.” – Nashville Scene

“Dawn Landes is staking her claim in Nashville” – People Magazine

“Landes seizes upon classic country songcraft…balancing humorous, winking gestures like ‘Why They Name Whiskey After Men’ against the sweetness and uncertainty of ‘How to Say ‘I Love You.'” – Rolling Stone

“‘Landes’ spin on folk and country songwriting traditions are captivating…the record sounds golden honey sweet and the songs roll by with ease.” – No Depression

Landes will wrap up a brief run of US tour dates this month, including a special hometown release show in Nashville tonight, and will head to Europe this fall for dates in the UK, France, Ireland, and beyond.
