“These days, more than ever, we all need a reason to feel upbeat and optimistic. This is our way of helping us get there.”
That’s Drew Lawrence, co-founder, singer/songwriter and keyboard player of the California-based band The Dales, sharing some insights into Easy Times, the band’s aptly named new EP and follow up to Marie, their critically acclaimed debut. Where that album shared a story of heartache and hardship in the wake of a personal tragedy, Easy Times changes its tune, both literally and figuratively. The melodies are as alluring, irresistable and accessible as always, but there’s a decided sense of optimism and exuberance ringing through these five carefully crafted songs, each of which offers an assured antidote for troubled times.
