The Austin songwriting duo, Dawn & Hawkes are headed to Northside Tavern on Tuesday, August 28th! The duo has recently unveiled its second full-length LP, The Other Side.
Self-produced and recorded at different home studios around Austin, the ten tracks on The Other Side chronicle a year when Chris Hawkes and Miranda Dawn packed away all of their belongings and traveled the country in their car. Along the journey, the couple encountered mortality, grief, and an unwavering compassion for differing perspectives.
In a time when the United States seems more politically divided than ever, this album explores themes of empathy, hope, and finding our common humanity. "'Promised Land' was the first song we wrote for this album; it seemed to set the tone for the nine subsequent songs to follow, all exploring the theme of empathizing with the other side," recounts Miranda Dawn. "We hope that you will hear this album and share it with someone you love, because these are anthems of compassion for everyone who's ever felt on 'The Other Side.'"
