Listen to one of their tracks here:
Dawin (born Dawin Polanco raised in Brooklyn, New York) is a Singer/Writer/Producer who inducted himself into the arts of music at a very early age. Over the years Dawin acquired much expertise in different instruments and styles of music however, learning how to play the guitar at the age of four was the launch pad for Dawin’s artistic career. He also plays piano and uses his knowledge of music to produce songs.
According to New York-based pop duo Loote, the best way to describe their sound is by talking about ice cream. “We’re like a perfect chocolate-vanilla swirl soft serve cone,” says Emma Lov, who co-writes and shares vocals with Jackson Foote. “You throw in our specific interests and they work better together.”
Few pop groups would liken their synergy to a summer treat, but in Loote’s case the analogy works. Emma’s singer-songwriter background and Jackson’s production technique come together in fresh and unexpected ways—like two distinct flavors —making their tracks exceptional and, well, ice cream cool.
“What you’re hearing,” says Jackson Foote, “is a combination of two personalities and where they meet in the middle. We’re different in a lot of ways, and you can hear that in our music, but in a lot of ways we’re also very similar and you can pick up on that too.”
The result is a confident sound that’s sexy, energetic, and inspired by many of today’s trailblazing artists. It’s undoubtedly poppy, but there’s a sense of craftsmanship and attention to detail apparent in all of their tracks that sets them apart.
