Julian Dawson: possibly the UK's most overlooked singer-songwriter. Julian Dawson is well-known on the Continent, especially in Germany, where he has had many chart successes, but in the UK, his recordings have often slipped under the radar. Over the years, collaborations with an eclectic roster of stellar musicians including Gene Parsons, Toots Thielemans, Richard Thompson, and Lucinda Williams have remained a recurring feature of his recorded and live activities. After 22 solo albums, Dawson returned to his friend Dan Penn's studio in Nashville for this entirely analog recording, Living Good. It's a sonically beautiful guitar/vocal performance with a handful of well-chosen guests and spontaneous harmony vocals from the legendary producer. Dawson is a world-class harmonica player, at home in classic UK pop, folk, country, and blues music circles. He has also found success as a record producer for Wolfgang Niedecken and country legend Charlie Louvin, and as an author, with his definitive biography of Nicky Hopkins. The infectious arrangements and joyous tunes on Living Good, including two co-writes with Dan Penn, are destined to bring Dawson's music to a wider audience.
