The Dwells

The Dwells


The Dwells are a vocal swirl, drenched in memorable lyrics and infectious songwriting and they pull inspiration from drama and expression in all mediums. The combination of their voices has been described as, “haunting yet ultimately heartfelt and vulnerable” and their songs won’t leave you alone.


The Dwells were born on the Fourth of July—Paige Califano and Matthew Bean were enjoying the night on a hot, crowded Boston rooftop, but soon found themselves one floor below with some old notebooks and a guitar. Their voices blended minutes into hours and as morning glazed the window, they both left hearing music come to life like they had never heard before. As they dove into new ideas, they slowly crafted their sound and what emerged was a neo-Americana, cosmic folk duo that gave a nod to earlier genre-benders like Gram Parsons and Elliott Smith.


Their new album, Don’t Ever Leave Me Like You Do, was released on March 30. This is the second self-released and self-produced album from The Dwells. Their debut album, Fortieth Floor, was released last May. Boston guitar legend, Randy Roos, recorded, mixed and mastered their newest album at his home studio in Ashland, NH. In addition, America’s foremost rock photographer, Henry Diltz (think The Doors Morrison Hotel, James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James and The Eagles Desperado, to name a few) shot the cover.
