Devin Dawson Went Viral with a Taylor Swift Mash-Up, But His Talent Extends Beyond That
Once recognized for his viral Taylor Swift mashup, Devin Dawson has since become a star in his own right. As one of Warner Brothers Nashville’s newest recording artists, Dawson is set to take over the industry with his unique style and rock and roll influence. Check him out when he performs live in Baton Rouge on Saturday, December 8th.
Devin Dawson is not your typical country artist. His look is dark and bold. His sound is sleek and raw. He has a knack for writing razor sharp stories that cut straight to the heart, full of detail and clever turns of phrase. And his songs speak the language of a new generation. Dawson is an edgy study in contrast, poised as the next bolt of lightning to hit country’s family tree.
His approach to music is not different on purpose, it’s different with purpose. Twenty-eight years old and from Orangevale, California, Dawson grew up just outside the gates of Folsom Prison. He heard the sirens at night, and sang along to Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Arriving in Nashville in 2012, he put his unique skills to use authoring songs for other artists.
When it came time to put together his own debut album, he teamed with equally daring producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne). Having co-written every track, the result is a mix of organic roots and high-voltage country, full of romance and delivered with a distinctive saw-toothed vocal. As he gets ready to join Maren Morris’ Hero Tour this year, Dawson is already establishing a reputation in Nashville as one of the most exciting modern singer-songwriters the format has ever seen.
Witness Devin Dawson for yourself at Texas Club on Saturday, December 8th. General admission tickets are 15 dollars. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 9:00 p.m. This show is restricted to patrons 18 and up.
