Since their debut album North Hills was released in 2009, Dawes has continued to build a following thanks to their roots-infused rock music and easygoing personality. The guys have rubbed shoulders with industry greats like The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson and songwriting genius Conor Oberst, but Dawes’ sound is all their own. Their widely anticipated third album Stories Don’t End is due out on April 9 via their own label and in partnership with their management company, Q Prime.
