Simon Dawes is a 4 piece rock band from Malibu, California. The story behind the band’s name is a mystery, as many different sources have many different stories. The biography on their website simply states “Simon Dawes is a band… named after no one.” The band is composed of four friends. Its founding members Taylor Goldsmith (vocals, guitar, keys, lyrics) and Blake Mills (vocals, guitar, and lyrics) began playing music together in junior high, and their sound evolved and became Simon Dawes with the addition of Wylie Gelber (bass) and Stuart Johnson (drums).
Along with playing many California shows, Simon Dawes has toured with The Walkmen, Maroon 5, Band of Horses, Eisley, and Wolfmother, among other artists.
They recently were featured on the soundtrack for the movie Spider-Man 3, with their song “Scared of Myself”.
