Dead Waits


When you’re at the bottom, there’s no way left but up. Dead Waits is a new collaboration between Dawn Charbonneau (vocals, guitar, accordion, percussion) and Ed Janzen (vocals, guitar, harmonicas, percussion). They take their inspiration from songwriters Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, among others. Their dark songs, both sweet and gritty, consist of covers and some originals that explore themes of heartbreak, despair, murder and misery.
