Album Notes
This album is a collection of such all-time favorites as "Pennies from Heaven" and Gershwin's "Our Love Is Here to Stay," in addition to refreshing renditions of Norah Jones' recent hit "Come Away with Me" and Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." Dawn also demonstrates her song-writing talent on the album's title track.

Her lush and resonant sound is backed by talented musicians from Minneapolis and New York, including locally renowned instrumentalist Dave Karr on saxophone and flute, Steve Wagner on flügelhorn, Eric Stiller from the Greenwich Village Orchestra on bass, local favorite Phil Hey on drums and nationally recognized Clay Moore on electric guitar. The multi-talented Adi Yeshaya, who has worked with artists like Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston, served as accompanist, arranger and executive producer.

Dawn grew up in a very musical family. She was always a "happy-go-lucky" kid, memorizing every commercial on TV, every Bible verse song from Sunday School and many hymns from her childhood. She sang her first solo at age 12 at summer camp and has since performed in many choirs, competitions and musicals. She currently resides with her husband, Lee, in St. Paul, Minnesota.


to write a review


Beautiful voice, arrangements. I love it more and more every time I listen to it!


Beautiful! Soothing!
Beautiful voice! Perfect music for a rainy day.


Dawn's got a fresh and versatile voice.....she can bite and then turn on the warm at the drop of a hat......her combo has some great musicians and the arrangements are cool with some unexpected turns. I'd like to see her in a live setting.


A soothing voice after a long day
Dawn's voice is smooth and silky and perfect for calming you down after a long day at work. The singing seems so effortless, yet it is so rich. I highly recommend this album for everyone's music library!

Excellent, soothing, classy, cool and extremely talented!
Loved all the songs, the mix of vocals and instrumentals and the quality. Neither one drowns out the other. Wonderful arrangements.


A Great CD!
This CD is a joy to listen to from start to finish. The instrumentation and arrangements are excellent, and Dawn's voice is clear and beautiful.

Soft jazz--love it! Relaxing.
I love the soft jazz, done in good taste. Relaxing, soothing. I like it more every time I hear it. The voice and the instrumental music is a perfect blend.
