California-based roots rock band Dawes were formed in the Los Angeles suburb of North Hills by brothers Taylor Goldsmith and Griffin Goldsmith (lead vocals / guitar and drums, respectively), Wylie Gerber (bass), and Alex Casnoff (guitar). They were previously in the band Simon Dawes, but after guitarist Blake Mills left the group, they changed the name (and added Casnoff,who was soon replaced by Tay Strathairn). Unlike the more intense indie rock sound they had as Simon Dawes, Dawes is heavily influenced by the gentle acoustic-based musical trappings and rich vocal harmonies of the Laurel Canyon sound, and also by the shambling romanticized Americana of The Band.
