I said I would take a listen and write a review, so here I am. :) I have purchased Dawn’s ‘Have You Heard’ album, and the tracks I review here are all from this album. Thankfully, Dawn has already told you much about herself in her bio, so my researching has been made a lot easier, so more of my time could be spent listening to the music. [Sometimes, I just love this reviewing lark :) ] I would highly recommend that you take a look at Dawn’s YouTube channel, in order to get a feel for some of the energy that she puts into her live performances. http://www.youtube.com/user/dawnmaracle/videos You would then be able to see and hear for yourselves that Dawn is not just an amazing vocalist and exceptionally talented musician, but she is a”

“.In May, Dawn Maracle was named the 1989 Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Associations of America.For the country-western singer, born in Malone and now living in Southern California, it has been a steady rise to the top - if not a bit of a shock.In September 1988, the California Country Music Association nominated Miss Maracle as regional female vocalist of the year.

I was nine days away from having my son and I was as huge as a house. I was up on stage thinking, "Who's going to vote for me?' When they announced my name I couldn't move for a minute.”

“Maracle has proven her worth as a musician many times over. She's been awarded the National Female Vocalist of the Year Award two different times from the CMAA, which also declared her tune “Hardly Working” the song of the year in 1990. She has also been declared one of the Phenomenal Women of the Web. A slew of nominations have also graced her career, including nods for guitar, keyboard, bass, songwriting, drumming, fiddle and more. She's in the Who's Who of American Women, Biltmore’s Who’s Who as well as the Who's Who Historical Society. Artists with whom she has shared the stage include T. Grahm Brown and The Coasters. Maracle is busy playing, working on children's programming voiceovers, writing and recording. The summer of 2008 will see the release of a new CD. She's working with A&R Select, the world's leading artist development firm, based out of Los Angeles, CA. ”

“Dawn Maracle may have moved away from Auburn 23 years ago, but she took with her important lessons as she continued her career in music. Photo provided Dawn Maracle returns to Auburn Aug. 1 for a benefit performance, the start of an upstate tour. Maracle began performing in the band “75RPM” in 1975 as a bassist and vocalist. “We became very popular in the area,” Maracle said. “We played in Auburn, Baldwinsville, Skaneateles, all over the area.” The band soon changed its name to “The Dawn Maracle Band,” but the music remained the same. “We played a variety of styles, from rock and country to blues and pop,” Maracle said. She has also worked hard creating her own music. “My inspirations have been everything from Led Zeppelin and The Who to Janice Joplin and Jefferson Airplane. “I'm influenced a lot by the rock bands from the '60s and '70s.” ”
