Dawn Landes

Dawn Landes is a force to be reckoned with. This multitalented American singersongwriter, musician, and producer has five fulllength albums and five EPs under her belt. From touring with roots music band Hem and Sufjan Stevens to producing and engineering music in New York City, her unique blend of musical talent and production expertise has landed her nationwide acclaim and partnerships with giants of American roots music.

The New Yorker describes Landes’ voice as “quiet, flush with breath, almost conversational, but powerfully anchored. It filled the room.” We look forward to hearing this remarkably talented artist’s voice fill the American Tobacco Campus as she kicks off our 2023 Duke Arts at American Tobacco series. See you there!

Arrive early for a free public appearance of Close Act Theatre’s Birdmen beginning in front of Mellow Mushroom at 6 p.m.
