When David Boone sat down to write the songs for the debut D A W N S release, he set out to create a world within the art and the material is gaining early praise from critics for its 'lush melodies and orchestral arrangements blended with americana, indie rock and pop to make the EP a standout for all five tracks' (Altsounds.com). The debut D A W N S EP was produced by Danton Supple (Coldplay, Morrissey, Starsailor) and features string arranger Audrey Riley (The Smiths, The Cure, Foo Fighters).
D A W N S
something on the horizon
Dawns is the new self-titled debut EP from the Montana USA based artist, scheduled for release June 20th, 2012, the summer solstice.
Over the course of a nine-day period, Montana songwriter David Boone penned a group of twelve songs and then began arranging the material, digitally, alongside a collaborative of longtime friends and fellow musicians spread throughout the Northwest. Just months later, the group rendezvoused at a remote studio retreat in western Montana and began recording the new project.
At the encouragement of Boone’s wife, the batch of demos was sent out and caught the attention of acclaimed UK producer, Danton Supple (Coldplay, Starsailor, Morrissey).
Boone, along with his wife and two month old son, traveled to London in the fall of 2011 to work with Supple, accompanied by string-arranger, Audrey Riley (The Smiths, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins). The dynamic collaboration brought to full realization the artist's original vision, and D A W N S was born.
