Album Notes
Dawn O'Keefe Williams is a woman of steel as she weaves her stories of moving forward with strength and dignity which is reflected in her new CD.. Born in Chicago Dawn has survived all the things that life can throw at a person from childhood to adulthood. While dealing with the pressure of day jobs to pay the bills, Dawn continued to persevere her music; to sing, write songs and perform. Hence the title of her new album “Woman of Steel” which reflects many facets of her life and her strength as a woman.
She tells us how fate led her to find her heritage as part Native American with “Call From The Heart” and “Seat At The Table”. Her narrative on how we are all connected through ancestry on “We Are One” which has received standing ovations and radio airplay. William’s commentary on dealing with a cheating man, “Cheatin’ Fool” a blues shuffle tells him basically “It’s your loss”. She reminisces on her past childhood imaginary friend, or was it imaginary… on “Paint Pony”. Her realization that what makes her unique is also a struggle and takes her on a different and sometimes misunderstood path by family, friends and co-workers in “Born To Stand Out”. Her desire for peace, on “I Just Want Peace” and her surprise at how much she fell in love with her first grandchild “Little One”. Also, a song she wrote with blues lyricist, Margaret Sampson (platinum record recipient) called “Mississippi Midnight” which Dawn recorded twice on the CD. Once as a haunting acoustic style and also as a bonus track rockin’ it out which shows her versatility in songwriting and arrangement. Best of all her song about women, “Woman of Steel” reflects all aspects of life throughout history from mothers to warriors, who are strong and the backbone of society. On "Woman of Steel", Dawn’s vocals are passionate evoking wistfulness, anger, gentleness and are both sultry torch-like and powerful. Dawn has developed her songwriting and vocal artistry moving prolifically through different moods that have been sculpted by life challenging experiences as a woman of the 21st century. “Woman Of Steel” will take you on this ride.
