Dawson Smith & The Dissenters Short Info

Based in Leicester UK for over twenty five years, Dawson Smith is originally from Abertillery,
South Wales and has a well-earned reputation for fronting great bands and rocking venues
all over the UK and beyond. Dawson first made his name as the frontman / songwriter of blues rockers The Healers (’90s). Following The Healers split, Dawson recorded two successful solo albums.
Valley Boy (2002) and The River Road (2005). Loads of gigging followed, playing 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 swamp blues and rootsy Americana bar room rock & roll that has always been the backdrop to Dawson’s distinctive songs. Dawson Smith & The Dissenters have built an enviable reputation as a smokin’ live band and always a great night out, with a large mailing list and loyal following and an extensive gig circuit around the UK.
