Andrea Dawson & Hell To Pay – alt country/blues/rock

Fri 3 Dec @ 8:00 pm

Port Augusta country girl Andrea Dawson was born with a big heart and voice to match. Growing up in the bush and the farmlands and taking her music to the city was akin to the bluesmen and storytellers from the Mississippi delta relocating to their cities and as those bluesmen took their stories, so did Dawson.

Andrea’s songs are tales of family, friends, trauma and real life which sets here apart from most of her contemporaries. She’s the real deal and it doesn’t get much more real than this.
A chance meeting with SA Music Hall of Fame inductee, roots and alt blues and country songwriter and world traveller Gwyn Ashton, who got stranded in his hometown in Adelaide from Europe whilst on tour due to the world shutdown, resulted in a musical partnership and labour of love for both of them who share a common interest in creating new music with passion.

Ashton is producing, co-writing and playing guitar on this project.
Now based in the big smoke of Adelaide, South Australia Dawson has assembled a professional band with seasoned players including Gwyn Ashton, Dennis Kipridis (The Streamliners) and Travis Dragani (the superjesus, Baby Animals) and she has proven that tired ol’ cliche still remains true; ‘you can take the gal outta the country, but you can’t take the country outta the gal’, but she does it her own way and she calls all the shots!

They are in pre-production for her debut album ‘Fight Back!’
