Product Description

Product Description

Based in Nashville, but raised in a coal miner's company house on the banks of Buffalo Creek, Based in Brooklyn, but raised in Louisville, singer-songwriter Dawn Landes has been writing songs for most of her life, and at 33 already has more than a decade of experience as a professional producer and engineer. After leaving NYU where she studied psychology and literature, Landes began honing her production and engineering skills, working at Stratosphere Sound (owned by James Iha, Adam Schlesinger, and Andy Chase), and at Philip Glass' personal recording studio, before launching Saltlands Studio in Brooklyn with partners Steve Salett and Gary Maurer. Her new album Bluebird was produced in collaboration with good friend Thomas Bartlett (known for his work with The National, Sharon Van Etten, Rufus Wainwright, Antony and the Johnsons, and many others), and features contributions from Tony Scherr, Rob Moose, and Norah Jones. Press coverage of Bluebird will understandably present this album as Dawn's answer to her ex's "divorce record". However, like any great songwriter, she's abstracting her personal narratives enough to leave them open to interpretation and a larger meaning. Bartlett's spartan production keeps the vibe intimate, making it easy to connect with these naked and honest songs which manage to rise above the context in which they were written.

Product Description

2014 album of bittersweet country- folk, first in 4 years from the Louisville songstress, features Norah Jones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sadness Becomes Her 28 Mar 2014
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
'Bluebird', the new album from Nashville-based singer/songwriter
Dawn Landes, is an admirably solid affair. She has a lovely voice,
full of warmth and very easy on the ear. This collection of ten
numbers is a largely melancholy affair; even when she puts her foot
on the gas, as she does to some degree, on the almost sprightly
'Bloodhound', her predilection for minor keys and shades of grey
imbues her music with an overriding sense of loneliness and longing.
This, however, turns out to be her greatest strength.

From the bluegrassy opening number 'Bluebird', stripped down to the
bare bones; through the gentle bluesy grind of 'Heel Toe'; the
perfectly pretty 'Lullabye For Tony' and bitter-sweet prayer-like
coda of the final track 'Home', there truly is a whole lot to love.

The sublime little song 'Diamond Rivers' is alone worth the price of purchase.

Very Nice Work.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album 11 Mar 2014
By Christopher R. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not one for 5 stars but I have just about burned the "bits" off my digital download of this album. I start it and make sure replay is on because I like it to track through 3 or 4 times if I have the time. Every song is a keeper. It must have been hell try to decide the play order. These songs are written at the "top shelf" level imho. I'm out of superlative.
