“Richard Dawson spent years incubating his singular art, becoming a quiet
legend on the Newcastle experimental scene before exploding across the
UK and Europe with the delicately observed personal lilt of his 2012
album The Magic Bridge. Invitations followed to perform at
Kraak, Supersonic, and Latitude festivals as well as being lauded by
Late Junction and the Wire, which saw him step musically and emotionally
outside of Tyneside.”


Richard Dawson‘s upcoming album “Nothing Important,” is due out on November 3rd via Weird World Record Co., HERE.

“Paradise Outlaw was recorded in four days at Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin with a supporting cast that includes Vernon, Amos Lee, Brown’s troubadour father, Greg Brown and various members of an experimental group of players she calls the Sawdust Collective. Paradise Outlaw boasts some of Pieta’s most emotionally resonant compositions, and some of her most expressive performances, to date.”
