Devin Dawson (Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic)
5/10/17

WHAT IT IS: 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—a Vevo dscvr 2017 artist —is an edgy study in contrasts, poised as the next bolt of lightning to hit country’s family tree. When it recently came time to put together his own debut album, he teamed with 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.
