Dawson ready for musical weekend

Brodie Dawson makes a clear, direct hit and seduces you with a bit of smoky overtone.

It’s her voice that jumps out at you.

Brodie Dawson makes a clear, direct hit and seduces you with a bit of smoky overtone. She’ll catch you at the door as the first notes of her voice seem to wrap you in a warm cloak made of sweet, earthy moodiness, and her  words can almost be tasted as her stories make their way across your palette served up hot, smooth and rich on her own plate of originality.

Brodie calls her style a mix of soulful ‘folky’ blues with a twist of pop and a twang of old-school country. True to all those genres she sings of life, love, searching and finding your way.

Her voice has graced coffee shops, pubs, clubs, festivals, community events, and radio shows such as CBC North’s Homemade Jam with Norbert Poitras and CBC’s The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean.

Coming out of a period of musical hibernation, she is in full form and ready to knock your socks off! On Aug. 19, she is performing at The Big Time Out in Cumberland. She’ll be joined by the incredibly talented John Hughes on guitar and vocals, funkmaster Darryl Milne on bass, Jacob Gregory kickin’ it up on the kit, and Jenn Forsland ‘s smooth finesse on keys and harmonies.

True to Brodie’s form, there may also be a few surprise guest appearances.
