The In-Between

William Dawson has visited all seven continents, worked with big bands such as The Hives and The Squirrel Nut Zippers and has seen every up and down of the music industry has to offer.

Recent economic crisis and gas price hikes made touring with the Squirrel Nut Zippers no longer a viable option for Dawson, causing him to leave the touring world behind. He now spends his days substitute teaching and going to college in hopes of ascertaining teaching licensure in elementary education.

All the while, he is helping take care of Cece, his partner's daughter, and maintaining a couple local bands.
