BiographyThe Dawn Chorus have been making their mark on the local and international music scene since 2008. Renowned for their intense delivery and uncanny ability to put into words personal tales; that captivate and speak universally to listeners from all ages and backgrounds. At 27, front man Mitch has neatly chiseled his distinct sound from an extensively wide range of genres, settling somewhere between Folk, Blues, Rock, Jazz and Indie. With a voice that stands unique and is power driven, you can't help but stop, look and listen to what Mitch has to say.
The Dawn Chorus is quickly building a reputation for its raw, yet undeniably tight knit stage show. Smooth keys and well-defined vocal harmonies create a warm bedding, whilst their rock-solid rhythm section entrances the crowd with infectious grooves and seamless dynamics.
Notoriously hard to put a finger on, The Dawn Chorus’s sound has been said to resemble the likes of Jeff Buckley, Chris Cornell, Joe Cocker, The Cold War Kids and even Sublime to name a few. However, what listeners usually find is something that draws from such a broad array of influences, that its much easier to label as, ‘it’s own.’
With the release of their debut album “Letters from Ropeshoe” and the launch of their multimedia EP (featuring the much-hyped video clip for “Becky’s Song”) along with an international tour under their belt and a steadily growing number of national shows and festivals, The Dawn Chorus look to make even bigger tracks. Plans for a full length album release with the new band line up, are set for late 2013, as the guys take to the road for what looks to be a huge year.
