Songs such as “Try to Make a Fire Burn Again,” “Bodyguard,” and “Straight Lines” have built her reputation as one of our best independent singer-songwriters, showcasing an ability to tell stories that makes her the perfect choice to write the songs for a musical like ROW.The show’s songs not only resonate in these trying times, they also make up an album that is a remarkable production and a collection of moving, powerful songs that take us on a journey with an unstoppable woman. There’s the rousing show-stopper “Independent Spirit,” about conjuring all of our courage in the face of impossible odds, backed by a cooing chorus and lyrics that illuminate the long legacy of pioneers who refused to be quelled by daunting obstacles.Dawn has managed to create a soundtrack that is simultaneously consistent and eclectic. A lamenting fiddle drives the dreamy waltz “Dear Heart” while the Jewish music tradition steers the prayerful “Avinu Malkeinu, Star of the Sea” and elements of Shakespeare’s King Lear inform the tempest-conjuring “Third Storm, King Lear.” “Second Storm, Hamlet” showcases Sonus Choir, a Nashville-based classical a capella choir, in a collaboration that Dawn says was a highlight of the project. There is also the showstopper “Row,” in which the spirits of Dolly Parton, Tina Turner, and Cher, (voiced by singers Carly Johnson, Sheryl Rouse and Kimmet Cantwell, respectively) act as sirens of encouragement to the show’s heroine.Other guests include Will Oldham offering a moving reading of the tender love song “Second Time Around”; Brigid Kaelin providing soaring vocals on “Oh Amelia”, a duet with Dawn; Tyrone Cotton singing as Muhammad Ali on “What Would Odysseus Do?;” and Ben Sollee as Tori’s sweet middle school crush on “Ode to Eric Fee.” Learn more about your ad choices.

Why Would You Row The Sea? Dawn Landes Discusses New Musical And Concept Album

The Roundtable

Tori Murden McClure was the first woman - and the first American - to successfully row across the Atlantic Ocean. She succeeded in 1998 after an attempt in 1998 was foiled by a hurricane. Her vessel? A 23 foot rowboat she had built and named the “American Pearl.” The story of her accomplishment has inspired the new musical “Row” - with a book by Daniel Goldstein and music and lyrics by singer-songwriter, Dawn Landes . “Row” was scheduled to have its world premiere production at The Williamstown Theatre Festival this past summer. WTF and Artistic Director, Mandy Greenfield have partnered with Audible to release audio versions of the shows intended to play on their stages last season. A release date for “Row” hasn’t been finalized, but Dawn Landes’ album of songs from the show - recorded with musician friends - is available now.

Episode #218 – Dawn Landes

Good Stuff Kids

“These songs come from a place of exhaustion, bewilderment and pure love,” says Nashville-based singer/songwriter Dawn Landes of My Tiny Twilight, a six-song collection out May 10 on Yep Roc Records.“I found myself singing to my daughter constantly to soothe her, entertain her, and pass the time, says Landes. “The first song I wrote was “Hushabye.” I couldn’t get her to stop crying so I sat at the piano and played until she quieted down. She responded to the melody and it became pretty useful in those first months.”You can also hear the whole song 'I'm Your Mama' at the end of the show.  How about the video that Dawn directed herself?  Check it!https://youtu.be/ibw8RNiDybIContinue reading Episode #218 – Dawn Landes on the site.

Woodsongs Vodcasts

LINDSAY LOU has been making beautiful, soul-shaking music for the last decade with her band The Flatbellys. This Michigan songbird has been featured in a number of the best acoustic music festivals in the US. Her singing floats over the instrumental mastery and deep groove of her band with dynamics that range from a lullaby to a battle cry. 2018 marks what might be the biggest year for the band, both sonically and with the fact that they are dropping “& The Flatbellys” from their name, a decision that seemed like the natural next step for them. The band is set to release their latest, a transformative and heart-wrenching album titled ‘Southland’.DAWN LANDES is one of the most fearlessly innovative musicians working today. Raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and Branson, Missouri, Landes cultivated her musical gifts not only through performing and songwriting, but also through learn-by-doing production work that eventually led her to co-owning a recording studio for a time. Over the years, she has collaborated with such contemporaries as Will Oldham, Justin Townes Earle, and Norah Jones. Her latest ‘Meet Me At The River’ is Landes’ self-described “Nashville record.” She has assured its pedigree by enlisting the production skills of Fred Foster, the Country Music Hall of Fame member and an an A-Team of Nashville musicians. WoodSongs Kid: Cash Staub is a twelve-year-old musician from Williamstown, Kentucky. He has a deep love of bluegrass and old timey music.
