Dawn Desimone

Dawn may not be the first recording artist to make sense of such diverse influences as The Osmonds, Fleetwood Mac and Nirvana, but she does so with the focus and conviction that her more ironic-minded contemporaries lack.

With a voice evocative of Heather Nova, Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks (perhaps a Dawn DeSimone cover of "Landslide" would better convey the solemn loneliness of Nicks' classic than the ubiquitous Dixie Chicks version?), Dawn delivers earthy and personal testimonials that are refreshingly free of the arch and self conscious postures of most modern singer-songwriters.

Her assured vocals are warmly married to minimal acoustic guitars & light percussion that move around freely while allowing her voice to command and direct the music; as well performed as the music is on Scattered Confessions, one can also feel DeSimone is just as at ease with simple acoustic and scented candle accompaniment.

While her looks and charm exude star quality, her delivery is entirely personal, authentic and sincere.
