“Dawn Lawrence has mesmerized crowds with her earthy and melodic vocals both individually and while touring with Crossroads, an Eric Clapton tribute. Dawn comes highly recommended for her vocal talents as well as her contagious smile and personality. I highly recommend Dawn for your next event!” July 22, 2012 Vicki Kolb of Accent on Tampa Bay Magazine
Coming from a church backgound and a family of performers, I always loved that "vessel" feeling of something flowing through me as I sang something that would touch someone. A church audience is a pretty tough one as they don't want to hear anything too often and everyone is stone cold sober! I could see the reaction of what I sang in peoples faces as I sang to them so I never developed that disconnect with my audience that I see out in bars.
Since the fall of 2010 I have been part of Crossroads Eric Clapton tribute. This is a pro level band using two agents (and currently looking for a good manager). Through the audition and rehearsal process I began to really appreciate the talent of the guys I've been working with, as I've had to stretch my abilities and opinions of what my abilities are to fit this growing and expanding band playing increasingly prestigious venues and quickly gaining raving fans!
Also since 2009 or so I've been following The Artist way series which gets you writing 3 pages a day. After filling up three or four notebooks of writing I went back through and pull out the cool little snippets that sounded poetic and matched them up together and lyric writing was born! Pretty soon songs started to just flow on occasion and sort of write themselves.
I currently have one demo recorded and several more in various stages of readiness for recording. Stay tuned for the next exciting turn of events!
