Named 'Vocalist of the
Year' at the 2014 Vancouver Island Music Awards and nominated for 'Best
Live Act' at both 2013 and 2014 VIMA's, Brodie Dawson
It’s not often we find an
artist that has you unable to look away while she effortlessly delivers a
rawness and passion that stays with you long after.
It’s her voice that jumps
out at you…as soon as she sings her first note you're hooked. It's rich
and pure, so powerful and full of soul. You're in whether or not you
wanted to be - and you might as well not look back, and just hold on for the
ride... Brodie Dawson was born in Hamilton, Ontario - ‘The Hammer’ and grew up
in an environment that would prove to be her mentoring and her life’s
classroom. Her Father and talented musician in his own right, Brent Dawson, was
at the center of the city's flourishing music scene and Brodie grew up with
basement rehearsals, backyard parties with live bands, and lots of musicians
around. It was inevitable that she would absorb it all and eventually get to
work on developing her own style. This style reflects a true love story between
music and life that is constantly evolving, and awakens those who are lucky
enough to witness it. Brodie takes charge of her live performances with a
riveting rawness and an incredible voice that impacts us all, and clearly shows
she has earned her pedigree.
She has shared the stage with many other amazing musicians such as WiL,
Tracy Riley, Rick Fines, The Sojourners, George Canyon, Jake Owen, and Serena
Ryder! Her songs can be heard on 98.9 The Goat FM, 97.3 The
Eagle, and CBC Radio, and she has had the pleasure of being a musical guest on CBC’s
The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean. Finishing a full summer of shows such as Sunfest Country Music Festival in Duncan, Filberg Festival in
Comox, Yellowknife's 'Folk on the Rocks, and Serenity's Harvest
Music Festival on Birch Island, Brodie's been turning heads and creating a
buzz wherever she goes, leaving her audiences enchanted and full-hearted.
Brodie calls her style a
mix of 'soulful folky blues' with a gospel funk, a twist of pop and a twang of
old-school country. True to all those genres she sings of life, love, searching and finding your way. For those of you that haven't heard her
sing-you're in for a treat! She'll catch you at the door as the first notes of
her voice will seem to wrap you in a warm cloak made of sweet, earthy moodiness
and speak directly to your heart the entire evening. Her long awaited,
aptly-named, debut CD 'THE LOST TAPES' originally recorded
many years ago at the infamous Hotel2Tango Studios in Montreal and put on the
back burner during her adventurous ride in life, was literally 'lost' until
recently and has been found, re mastered and released with the help of producer
Corwin Fox. It has been well worth the wait and allows us to hear and feel her
infectious and captivating tracks that tell her story…so far. Every song expresses what we have all felt at
one point in our lives and maybe this is why so many have found a place in
their hearts for this girl that speaks the truth through song. It's
guaranteed to leave you spellbound and wanting more...
And more you shall
is back from the studio with Corwin and they have produced her newest single titled ‘All
This Time’ which has just been released to iTunes March 1st, 2015!
Expect to hear lots of it and be prepared to love it...
