EJ Dawson played drums for The Locals from 2004 to 2006 and was with us when we first started recording Big Picture. EJ joined The Locals at a time when we were rebuilding and revitalizing our sound and needed someone full of energy, who could hit hard and rock out a beat. He did just that. Not only is he a great drummer and a good friend, but he’s full of freak show anomalies that we adore, like his ability to turn one leg completely backwards at the knee, stomach a Cincinnati taco pizza without vomiting, raise a bionic cat with a metal hip and taste 20 cups of Espresso all in one day. EJ appears on 4 songs on the album; Big Picture, Together Alone, Seems So and Psychic Night at the Big Boy.
EJ is also an avid photographer and a coffee roasting master. He now resides in Nashville, TN where he can almost certainly be found eating Doritos and impersonating Mr. Wong.
