JUNO award-winning, Montreal based Singer/Songwriter Dawn Tyler Watson has earned her place among the International Blues elite. Her fiery stage presence and soul-stirring performances have garnered her national and world-wide recognition.
With two recent Maple Blues Awards; Songwriter of the Year, and Best Album/Producer, she was also nominated by the Blues Foundation in Memphis, Tennessee for a 2020 Blues Music Award for Vocalist of the Year alongside greats like Curtis Salgado & Mavis Staples. Her latest record “Mad Love,” has just won the 2020 JUNO award for Blues Album of the Year!
Add this to the three MBA’s she already has, the nine Quebec Lys Blues Awards, and a Screaming Jay Hawkins Award for Live Performance, a Blues Blast Music Award for Female Vocalist of the year, and you’ve got a decorated and consummate performer.
Since hooking up with a 7-piece killer band fronted by award-winning guitarist Ben Racine, Watson’s star has been on the rise. Taking home the coveted first-place prize at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2017, she’s been spinning magical moments on stage and sharing her expressive voice across four continents with shows that truly move the spirit.
With a sound that’s infused with Jazz, Soul, Rock, and Gospel, Watson pushes the boundaries of traditional Blues into a whole new dimension.
"One of Canada's true Blues treasures."
Blues Music Magazine
"Her fabulous voice and incandescent stage presence make her the Queen of the Blues in Montreal."
Journal de Montreal
"Watson, in a nutshell, smokes. She has a kit bag full of smooth moves, and a personality that lifts off the page."
Blues Revue Magazine
"What stands out in her show is stage presence - a subtle and sophisticated confidence that exudes class."
"Dawn's voice is a supple, sultry, sexy marvel, a scintillating instrument of
seductive allure, and she infuses every line with an equal measure of smarts and sass."
