After a happenstance encounter, songwriters Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes joined together to multiply their talents and formed a male/female fronted band touring the country and sharing songs, shows, and everything in-between.

Austin based indie-folk-americana duo Dawn and Hawkes first appeared in front of a large audience at the Kerrville Folk Festival, where Dawn was awarded as a finalist in the New Folk competition for emerging songwriters. By June, they had recorded and released their self-produced EP, GOLDEN HEART, featuring signature harmonies and an indie-folk sound influenced by Americana, country-rock, and classic Beatlesque-pop. Written and recorded from their home in Austin, their debut album has climbed to the top 25 of Billboard's Folk chart.

What is now a full-time touring and musical partnership, began with modest expectations. "I was out listening to the blues at a little juke-joint in East Austin and asked this pretty girl to dance" says Hawkes, "We were having a good time dancing and found out we were both singer-songwriters." Dawn continues the story saying, "Our timing and rhythm were just in-sync and when we added harmonies, songs, and guitar playing, it all went together - like dancing."
