The Moment with Brian Koppelman - June 2, 2015 - 1:09:54

Taylor Goldsmith, lead singer-songwriter for the band Dawes, joins us this week to talk about the group's new album, All Your Favorite Bands. The album is out today and Taylor can be heard playing an acoustic version of the title track at the end of this episode. In addition, Taylor looks back at his time working on The New Basement Tapes alongside Elvis Costello, Jim James, Rhiannon Giddens, and Marcus Mumford. He also meditates on songwriting, influences, and how art is criticized and consumed in today’s culture. Brian and Taylor also discuss the life and works of Bob Dylan, how turning 30 is a pivotal moment in an artist’s life, and the hope Taylor still holds on to in his music.
