SHORT BIO

DAWN GIBSON

Lead Vocalist /Rhythm Guitarist / Songwriter

Email:  dawngibsonmusic@gmail.com

Since the age of three, I have wanted to be a professional musician. I recall doing an aptitude and rhythm test in order to be able to start learning guitar at such a young age. The first question was, "Why do you want to learn to play the guitar?" My answer then, was, "Because one day I want to be a rock and roll star." That remains my answer today.  I completed 12 years of guitar lessons in 5 years and competed in many guitar soloist competitions in Ontario where I won first place through to third place awards.    I was born and raised in London, ON.  At age 12, I formed my first band. We won a trophe for our open band competition in Toronto through the Ontario Conservatory of Music. After many players and periods of withdrawing from music, I formed Mixed Trix.  We played at the Picadilly Palace, and were supposed to back up John Cougar Mellancamp, but he failed to attend the venue . We backed up Red Ryder at Le Bar Privilege, in Quebec City.   We toured extensively across Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, PEI and New York State.

Many years ago, I retreated from the music scene, for many reasons that I need not go into now... because the most important fact is that I have been actively back in music, pursuing my dream for approximately five years  now. I have a plethora of original material (in excess of 400 songs) that I am sure will please many listeners. The name of my bands were Becoming Dawn  and Darkest Dawn.

Vocally, I have many idols... but if I have to choose one, it would be Stevie Nicks.  I love her songwriting and lyrics.  I am also influenced by Hole, Concrete Blonde, Joan Jett, Toronto,  NIN, Sinead O’Connor, Pink Floyd, and the list goes on, of course. 

I have been interviewed on many online radio stations; recently accepted by audition to Sessions Live; recently accepted to LANDR PRO; recently accepted to Crowdcast and Amazon; CD available for streaming and/or downloading on most platforms including Spotify/

 

Writing songs is something that has always come naturally to me since the age of nine years old.  Some who know me, have encouraged me to write an autobiography of my life.   I chose to write songs, and I know they will be easily identified with by many listeners.   My songs tell my story.  Sometimes, we have tunnels we have to face... dark tunnels..  I want to be that light at the end of the tunnel.

I have recently released my own full length solo CD called “Out of the Dark” in November 2020.  I have partnered with Tam Duong, a former bassist in Darkest Dawn, on this compilation.  I write all the music and lyrics; perform acoustic and electric guitar, both rhythm and lead; program drums; backup vocals.  Tam is responsible for the bass guitar, synth tracks (except Pretty Little Tears, where I have a guest performer, Brian Fenn performing on synth and doing the violin and flute sections.  Maria Fenn accompanies me on backup vocals.  Tam is also the engineer, production, post-production, mastering guru.

In November of 2021, I released my 2nd full length CD "The Rising." Tam Duong takes full control of production, subject to my approval, of course.  And again, Tam is the mastermind behind the mixing, engineering and mastering of the CD.
