Goldsmith is the lead singer of Dawes.

A fellow musician (don’t pretend you weren’t a fan of Moore’s early work), Goldsmith is the lead vocalist and guitarist in the band Dawes. Earlier this year, The Observer opined that Dawes’ style was evolving from folk-rock into “timeless pop-soul.” Meanwhile, Rolling Stone described the band’s latest album, Passwords, as “polarizing” having mixed “laid-back SoCal balladry and Eighties-referencing, synth-driven heartland rock”—it also regularly references Goldsmith’s relationship with Moore.

According to Entertainment Weekly, in 2013, Dawes went on tour with Bob Dylan, which brought their music to an even wider audience. Goldsmith is in the band with his younger brother, Griffin, who plays the drums, with Wylie Gelber on bass, and Lee Pardini playing keyboards.

In an interview with People in October 2017, Moore spoke about her unexpected online connection with Goldsmith, revealing, “I took a picture of their album and posted it on Instagram. Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me. We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history. Thanks Instagram, for helping me meet my fiancé!”

Moore also explained that their relationship grew on FaceTime, telling People, “We spent hours FaceTiming each other. We fell in love before we’d even really held hands or kissed or anything. It was great.”

Moore appeared to confirm her relationship with Goldsmith on Instagram, too, in July 2015 when she posted a photo of her new beau playing Scrabble.
