Leicester blues rock outfit Dawson Smith & The Dissenters have released a video for their latest track “Agent of the State”.
Originally from South Wales and now based in Leicester UK, Dawson Smith has been rocking venues around the UK and beyond for the best part of 15 years, mainly as the frontman / songwriter of blues rockers The Healers (during the 90’s).
Following The Healers, Dawson recorded two successful solo albums. Valley Boy (2002) and The River Road (2005). Loads of gigging followed theses albums with a flexible band line up. In 2005 Dawson put together The Dissenters with the intention of forming his dream ‘road band’ able to deliver the type of driving roots rock that has always been the backdrop to Dawson’s excellent songwriting.
Comparisons with Los Lobos, Creedence, John Hiatt, Sonny Landreth, Thunderbirds,
Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker (and more) are much welcomed but they usually stick to their vision of Steve Earle meets Stevie Ray Vaughan backed by ZZ Top.
