RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Dawes didn’t set out to make music that sounds like it’s from another era- they just happened to. Singer-guitarist Taylor Goldsmith says their goal was to write songs they could play on the acoustic guitar at someone’s house, and if it reminds people of another artist from long ago, so be it.

He says writing songs with a traditional structure just makes them happy.
