Introducing Guest Bloggers: Dawen

By toksala | December 7, 2009

Conflict and turmoil usually make for great music, and Taiwanese-American Dawen is no exception. In he debut album American Me, he sang about navigating the frequently difficult terrain he faces as a young Asian-American man in “an eclectically soulful style reminiscent of artists as quirky as Nellie Mckay and as sensual as Seal.” (Read our full review of the album here!)
So when he gave us a call to let us know he was touring for the record, we jumped on the chance to get his touring experiences for our Bands on Tour feature. Musicians don’t start with Gulfstream airlines flying them to 5,000 capacity venues; they start like Dawen with a great album, a bit of buzz, and the enthusiasm and energy to make their music heard. So stay tuned to the highs, lows, and all the drama of hitting the road with your keyboard as you scramble to the next gig. And make sure to check out Dawen’s shows if he’s playing in a city near you!
