STEVE DAWSON-“Waiting for the Lights to Come Up”

Posted: January 12, 2008 by dillion in Blues

Here’s a neat little record, from Black Hen Records. Steve Dawson’s new album is due on February 5, and it reveals yet another solid Canadian singer-songwriter. I don’t know what they put in the water up there, but whatever it is, it’s working. Accompanied by expert musicians including Keith Lowe (Bill Frisell, Fiona Apple) on bass, Chris Gestrin (Randy Bachman, K-OS) on keyboards, and Scott Amendola (T.J. Kirk, Bill Frisell, Madeleine Peyroux) on drums, “Waiting For the Lights To Come Up” is a mellow mix of traditional blues, folk, and roots rock. Cool stuff.
