Album: Wild Heart
Release Date: February 24, 2017
Vancouver, BC-based Indie/Soul singer and songwriter Desirée Dawson, released her newest album entitled Wild Heart on February 24. Desirée Dawson is a 26 years old talented young lady that grabbed the attention of the nation when she won the CBC Music’s Searchlight Competition last May. Dawson’s musical career has taken her to perform at the annual CBC Music Festival in Toronto and many more. Desirée is already climbing the charts with her newest single ‘Wild Heart’ from her new album.
Wild Heart features 11 tracks, all with their own style. The song that first caught my attention was the second song “Without Your Love.” It’s a slower pace song that honestly sounds so beautiful with the mix of Desirée’s vocals and the instruments that she uses, they both flow perfectly. I could listen to this song repeatedly and never tire of it. The other song that captured my interest was “Beautiful Life” which is the ninth song on the album. This song is also a slower paced song, but has some gorgeous acoustic and violin parts. The story behind the lyrics is interesting and will keep you captivated; it is a raw and emotional song and is quite relaxing to listen to.
Overall, the album was very well put together, creating a mix of songs that displays what Desirée is about and her true love for creating music.
If you are looking for something new to listen to, Desirée Dawson is definitely what I would recommend.
