Today’s track is off his 2010 album Wings, The Day of the Troubadour seems like a good song choice for a man whose music currently has him touring Scandinavia.

Dawes is one of the hottest indie/Americana/Alt-Country bands around. The rich, smooth sound of this band, with it’s familiar yet modern feel has garnered the band a lot of attention and the opportunity to work with the great California singer/songwriter Jackson Browne. Their latest release Nothing is Wrong was released last year, and today we have the track Moon in the Water. Check out Nothing is Wrong by Dawes on Amazon.com by clicking the image below.

|Bobby Womack: Midnight Mover: The True Story of the Greatest Soul Singer in the World
Bobby Womack is a legend–a phenomenally gifted singer, songwriter, and guitarist with 40 albums and 30 million record sales to his name. A protege of Sam Cooke, Womack wrote classics that include “Lookin’ for a Love” and “It’s All Over Now” (a smash-hit for the Rolling Stones). Their success helped make him a star, but ongoing battles with drugs and the record industry nearly destroyed him. Behind his music lies a life scorched by tragedy, beginning with his impoverished childhood in Cleveland, to his years touring and recording with the greats–including James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Eric Clapton, and Elvis Presley–and through the years of drugs, partying, and riotous abuse, this is the authentic voice of a major soul artist.
