Critical acclaim for recent album 2020:
“Dawson’s mastery as a writer guides you along without hiding the awkwardness of addressing the world at its ugliest”

“The disjunctive melodies of the British avant-garde troubadour Richard Dawson are like Captain Beefheart reborn as a pastoral folky. Dawson’s sixth album, “2020,” is probably his closest to a rock record, one that still maintains his angular songwriting and vividly bent details”

“He writes melodies that no other singer’s found with structures that most songwriters haven’t even sketched out”

“a prolific composer who manages to take old music forms and twist them into new and often shocking shapes”

“Socially aware, beautifully played, dazzlingly well-crafted, and, most importantly, exceptionally moving, this is a glimpse of the future that’s happening right now”


After an outstanding 2019 for Richard Dawson, he now releases the video for “Dead Dog in an Alleyway”. The animated video comes directed by Ewan Jones Morris and reflects the powerful portrayal of homelessness conjured by Dawson’s evocative and startling lyrics. The track is taken from 2020, Dawson’s sixth solo record, released in October of last year.
