Release Date: July 7, 2016
Genre: Jazz/ Blues
Montreal based, Dawn Tyler Watson is known for her eclectic mix of Jazz, Rock, Soul and Blues, as well as for her outstanding work. She has received three Canadian Maple Blues Awards, nine Quebec Lys Blues Awards and a Screaming Jay Hawkins Award. During her career, she has played with many musicians including Jeff Healy, Koko Tyler and Cyndi Lauper.
This solo album reflects her command of Jazz, Blues and Soul. Jawbreaker starts with a rockin’ blues tune, then flows into a R&B track and then takes off into a Jazz song. A fun jazzy tune is “Smoked Meat” – YES it is about that cured delight. One of the tunes on this album, which is her fourth release, is a sweet version of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”.
Dawn Tyler Watson has been called Montreal’s Queen of the Blues, and when you listen to this album, I’m sure you will agree that the title is well earned.
I fell in love with live shows when I saw my first concert at 8 years old
and it is love affair that has been going on 42 years.
I started writing for two Canadian music magazines in order to write and photograph the great live music scene that was going on around me. I enjoy Blues, indie- rock, motown and old fashioned rock and roll from the 50s to 70s. I will go to intimate house concerts, local clubs and the way to big arenas to see good live music. When not at a show, I will be at home in my garden listening to my latest acquired album.
