The Dunwells :: Blind Sighted Faith


The Dunwells komen uit het Engelse Leeds, maar klinken super-Amerikaans. Na een optreden in Memphis kregen ze het ene na het andere aanbod van Amerikaanse platenmaatschappijen. Ze belandden uiteindelijk bij Playing In Traffic, gevestigd in Austin, Texas. Met superproducer John Porter (Roxy Music, Ryan Adams) namen ze hun debuut-CD op in Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Studio. En jawel, Blind Sighted Faith rechtvaardigt de hype. Meer dan dat zelfs. Elf sublieme eigen nummers die je het label Moderne Folkrock mag opplakken. Messcherpe samenzang, fraaie melodieën, geweldige mix van elektrisch en akoestisch. Sensationeel.  

All five members of The Dunwells hail from the same part of Leeds, earning their musical stripes in local pubs and clubs before uniting as a band. Brothers David and Joseph Dunwell grew up in a home full of music. Weaned on such artists as The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and countless other classic musical acts from the 1960s onward, both began playing guitar at an early age, inspired by their father, a talented classical acoustic player. David and Joseph both started writing songs and individually made their initial marks at open mic nights, playing in and around Leeds. When a booking agent suggested that they unite as an act it made perfect sense.
