Taylor Goldsmith

Rocco Peditto

The rootsy and lyrical rock style of L.A. band Dawes has had a hold on charmed fans for nearly a decade. They're back with a new album, called Passwords, and lead singer Taylor Goldmsith talks with host Talia Schlanger about writing the new songs, and the minor medical emergency that inspired one of them. Plus, we'll hear about his experience climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with his fiancé, actress Mandy Moore. And Dawes perform live.
