Bio

Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes first met in 2010 when he crossed an Austin barroom floor and asked her to dance. A modest beginning became an undeniable attraction the first time they sang together to create a sound Texas Monthly coined as “undeniably intimate.” Their first duo effort, Golden Heart EP, kicked off a whirlwind three years of constant cross-country touring, co-writing, and even a run on The Voice. Judge Adam Levine called their version of the Beatles’ “I’ve Just Seen a Face” his “favorite performance on the show - ever” and the single reached No. 1 on Billboard’s rock chart. Their original music followed climbing to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landing at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums. Likening their experience on The Voice to playing one of the biggest festival bills in the world, they seized the opportunity to perform in front of millions. “In the end, it put more wind in our sails,” Hawkes says of the experience, “but we’ve still got the same boat - and we have to keep our oars in the water.”

Dawn and Hawkes recorded their second album, Yours and Mine, in between tour dates with the likes of Dawes, Patty Griffin, Chris Isaak, Jim Lauderdale, Robert Earl Keen, Valerie June, and showcasing at festivals like Austin City Limits, Folk Alliance, South by Southwest and TEDx. “We'd tour, come home inspired, record a song, tour, rinse and repeat,” explains Dawn. With a constant tour schedule, “free time” to record a full-length album was relatively rare, yet Yours and Mine never sounds rushed or compromised. The majority of the songs are co-writes, conceived in real-time while the couple’s relationship bloomed from friendship to lovers and the record stands as an unfiltered chronicle tracing a pair of hearts stumbling, floating, and sometimes soaring through life together. Though not without moments of sobering reflection, Yours and Mine is foremost a celebration of life’s beautiful moments that make us want to take another breath and another step - despite uncertainty.
