Titling her third album Sweet Heart Rodeo might appear a calculated risk but singer-songwriter Dawn Landes, Kentucky-born and Brooklyn-based, swears she didn’t have the Byrds’ pioneering 1968 country-rock classic “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” in mind. Instead she was thinking of her great-grandmother’s beau, a young man who ran away to join the rodeo during the Great ... Read more in Amazon's Dawn Landes Store

Somewhere out there is a writer who can fill a screen about a friend's wife as if he and she were sole proprietors who just happen to share an apartment.

Not this writer.

And it didn't matter who Josh Ritter married. This guy is so incredibly nice that my wife and I couldn't avoid putting his bride under the microscope --- as if, from this distance, we could actually figure out if she's worthy of him.

(Yes, I know: We didn't flip the question and decide if he was worthy of her. That's a job for her friends.)

Dawn Landes made my job easy --- eight months into the marriage, she released a CD, Sweet Heart Rodeo, giving me a chance to assess her talents and then, under the guise of journalism, ask her every impertinent question I could think of.

If childhood holds the key to adult careers, Dawn Landes is textbook. She was raised in Branson, Missouri, which is a countrified Vegas, and Lexington, Kentucky. Her mother worked for non-profits --- the ballet, Planned Parenthood --- so it's not surprising to learn that Dawn was the kid passing out Planned Parenthood condoms in the high school parking lot.

Not that she was any kind of rebel. "I was a rule breaker who didn't party," she says. "My ambition was to be a genetic research scientist/performer." A tomboy, she played soccer and ran track. And she learned unlikely skills: "I can weld, I can solder, I'm a gearhead."

Yes, but what about music? "I played some open mikes in my last year in high school," she recalls. "But mostly, I'd play for 300 Governor's Scholars every week in the summer. You know --- nerd camp ."

College only meant New York for her, so she did two years studying psychology and literature at New York University.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! November 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Dawn Landes when she opened for Elvis Perkins in Dearland. I bought this CD right after the show and have listened to it endlessly. She's got a great rockabilly-indie-folk something going on. I'd say this is one of my must-have albums of the year!

Learned quite recently about Dawn Landes when I was browsing the Youtube-channel of wncyradio: [...]

The songs on Sweetheart Rodeo are beautifully crafted miniatures. If you like Suzanne Vega on her first two albums and Songs In Red And Grey you will certainly love Sweetheart Rodeo (and Fireproof, a DL-album I bought later on).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wandering Eye September 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having discovering her too late, nowadays I'm only listenin' Dawn Landes. Though it's one of the very first albums in her career, tracks in this album have driven me little crazy. Musical quality never goes under the ones who gave life to classic rock in 60's & 70's.

I'm very excited. With less musical effect of her husband Josh, and if she's taken off them Bandana Splits, why not the next album be the best non-Dylan album till 'Full Moon Fever'!

...take what I write with a grain of salt.

But do, please, note that dawn lowercases Dawn in dawn Landes, and has been doing so, oh, since forever. It is the handler and record labels and whatnot that weirdly fail to honor it. Amazon, you too -- get on the ball, please.

dawn's new album (this is 2014 as I write this), "Bluebird", is taking me longer to get into than every other bit of dawn's music (this is a pun on an actual dawn album title), but no worries. It will take as long as it needs to. It is what it is, speckless, to borrow a word from Jane Siberry's album title, Speckless Sky. Not sure it is all that kosher to plug one music lady in a review of another, but these two sure go hand in foot. I bet both would go for strawberry apricot pie... now, that is an allusion in text to yet more music ladies, The Roches: Maggie, Terre and Suzzy Roche, sisters three, off their eponymous debut album and the song contained therein "The Trouble", an exquisite record produced in 1979 in audio verité by no lady: Mr. Robert Fripp, yeah him, master guitarist of King Crimson and The League of Gentlemen and The League of Crafty Guitarists and of course, of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp. But that is a musical excellence on a tangent all its own, and for a review at another time.

Suffice to say, temperamentally all FIVE MUSIC LADIES (including as SIXTH the accomplished bassist "Sara Lee (musician)" [her Wikipedia bio is titled thusly, to distinguish her from other sweets] of The League of Gentlemen) would get along dandy, and I say that on the intimate knowledge of all the discographies involved, and that goes for the above mentioned gents as well. Howgh.
