A fantastically confident debut album from Mr E.C. Dawson. Caught one of his open mic shows in Exeter the other week, and these songs really benefit from a stripped-down, acoustic set. He has an incredibly mature approach to songwriting, that belies his relatively young age. I suppose thanks should go to various influences; Bruce Springsteen, The Band and Bon Iver, but Mr Dawson has actually achieved that rare thing in current music today- a sound all of his own. I expect big things, so get in there early and listen to these songs before they undoubtedly become staples of the music scene over the next year. 5 stars!
