On the heels of a 45-city U.S. tour, British folk-rockers The Dunwells’ return to the U.S. for a run of October and November dates that include performances at Austin City Limits Festival, Live at Aloft Hotels, Communion, and Southwest Airlines “Live at 35.”
The five-piece, who “bring to mind the vocal harmonies of Crosby, Stills & Nash” (AOL Music) continue to garner critical praise for their debut album Blind Sighted Faith. Recently re-released by Concord Records/Playing In Traffic, the album includes three new tracks, “So Beautiful, “Borrow Me” and “Dance With Me,” along with new cover art. Their video for the first single “I Could Be A King” is in rotation at CMT Pure, MTVU, MTV.com and VH1.com: http://on.mtv.com/PI49Fq. View/share/embed: http://youtu.be/tDuv-cG5rtM.
Recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Studio outside of Austin with Grammy-winning producer and Roxy Music bassist John Porter (Bryan Ferry, The Smiths, Ryan Adams), the 11-track album features stellar musicianship, classic roots songwriting and soaring harmony vocals.
Comprised of brothers Joseph Dunwell (vocals, guitar) and David Dunwell (guitar, piano, banjo) along with cousins Jonny Lamb (vocals, drums) and Rob Clayton (bass) and longtime best mate Dave Hanson (guitar, pedal steel), the band emerged from the pubs and clubs of their hometown, Leeds, England.
