Dead Gowns is a newer project from portland, maine. after collecting ourselves in the winter of 2018, we released our first ep this past july. pulling on folk, garage, and soft rock tendencies, it's music in the raw & tender.


vocals,guitar/ gv beaudoin
guitar,vocals/ luke kalloch
drums/ ivan drangus


“It’s hard to describe Beaudoin’s prowess without coming off a little obsessive but here’s what’s known: she’s just too damn good and we’re not worthy… Dead Gowns play the music we sing along to while we’re driving and tear up to once we’re parked.” WURI

"Her voice brings Lucinda Williams’ to mind — that Southern timbre and boozy drawl — yet Beaudoin’s range is wider. At times as delicate as glass, it can swell and swoop into high-lonesome yodel range with ease, fall back and land flat on a dime... "  The Bollard 

"Fresh off the release of a new EP, this indie-folk-rock quartet is subtle and good. Have an ear out for our favorite track,“Kansas” — Beaudoin’s vocals shine the most here, and the melancholic guitar work pleasantly builds up across the five-minute runtime."  Portland Phoenix
