Jean Dawson defies expectations. It’s what the 24-year-old artist thrives on. He prefers to exist in the in-between, as he's done since he was a child living in Mexico but going to school in California. Crossing the border every day was a necessary task, and now he is similarly traversing genre boundaries, creating a unique sound that escapes even his own definition. “I have no fucking idea," Dawson says. "I don’t know what I’m doing half the time. I just know I’m doing something.”
