Win DAWSON RUTLEDGE prize pack at Rockwood Music Hall on 9/28!

September 21, 2017

We have a special prize pack to give away at the free DAWSON RUTLEDGE show at Rockwood Music Hall on Thursday, September 28th!

The winner will receive a t-shirt and a copy of the new Dawson Rutledge album, "Monsters," coming out October 6th!

Dawson Rutledge is what anyone who cares deeply about music would be attracted to. He's a hip, award winning, sophisticated young songwriter, a unique vocalist, serious about his craft. At nineteen, he's already something of a vet, having crammed a full-blown apprenticeship into two heady years.

There's a rustic, organic acoustic feel to the album that has a warm '70s Woodstock vibe to it. But it's Rutledge's voice and lyrics that will pull you in. One of the trademarks of this full-length LP is how conceptually strong the collection is. Lyrics, music, vocals and arrangements all seem wonderfully consistent throughout the record and each song adds to a powerful feeling of romantic despair. In this way, Monsters is not unlike Morrison's masterpiece Astral Weeks. One song slides effortlessly into the next, foreshadowing what's to come, reflecting what has come before.

What might be most surprising about Monsters, is that both the songwriter and the finished record are so original. Usually, even the best efforts betray the influence of the songwriter's heroes. Dylan sounded like Woody Guthrie, Springsteen like Van Morrison. You will be enchanted by Dawson's first full-length LP, but you will have a fruitless time trying to spot his forbears.
