Dawes – Most People

dawes1“Most People,” the second single off the band’s third album, Stories Don’t End, is classic  Dawes – an introspective look into the twists and turns of life over a deceptively benign, vintage guitar hook. The band has been touring to promote their new album and recently sold out a show with Shovels and Rope at the Ryman Auditorium.   Dawes did a secret show for Lightning 100 a few months back.  Check out the in-studio videos we did with the band!
