Pure songwriter splendour with a dark undertone

Richard Dawson, the avant-garde singer-songwriter from Newcastle, is back with his sixth solo album ‘2020’. In contrast to much-praised predecessor ‘Peasant’, ‘2020’ is a contemporary reflection of a tumultuous and sombre moment in time. Dawson writes about an island in a state of change, a society on the brink of mental breakdown, England today.

For fans of Mount Eerie, Kim Gordon, Black Midi, Jane Weaver, Lankum, Snapped Ankles

In the press ‘2020 is a reminder of the need for basic decency in a country that is forgetting it, voiced by the most brilliant and humane songwriter working here today’ – ***** The Guardian
