Based out of the industrial Tyneside region of Northern England, esoteric singer/songwriter Richard Dawson’s shambolic, guitar-driven folk music has drawn comparisons to other singular artists like Jandek, Mike Waterson, John Martyn, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Adem, Skip Spence, and King Creosote. Specialising in a heady blend of traditional English folk music, Sacred Harp-kissed North Country blues, and jazzy psych-folk, Dawson issued his first recording, Richard Dawson Sings Songs and Plays Guitar, in 2007 before bursting out of the Newcastle experimental scene in 2012 with the critically acclaimed The Magic Bridge.
