Dawn Landes: 
Southern Accents

Raised in the fertile musical fields of Branson, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky, Dawn came to New York City in 1999 and did a cannonball into the music scene. While holding down several jobs to pay the rent, she abandoned university (NYU) and began to intern at some of the best studios in the city. What started as a job getting coffee for engineers has blossomed into a truly enviable resume. Working late into the night, and often sleeping at the same studios she was interning in, Dawn began producing and recording her own songs after hours. This is her take on Tom Petty’s Southern Accents.
