Step By Step

Dawn Rose

Haunting acoustic-pop, in a deep pocket of rock.

This new album features twelve original acoustic-rock songs that will make you want to linger and listen.

After making three CDs over the past ten years - one solo and two with Sweet Burgundy - Dawn became fiercely determined to find the right producer to help her create top quality recordings of some of her complex, lyrical, original rock music in a contemporary style.

Dawn hired producer Tom Corwin, of Mill Valley, California (Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Wonder) to produce the first few songs. The project quickly took on a life of it’s own, turning into artist development and co-writing. What began as giving a few previously written songs a chance to shine turned into a full-length album with six songs Dawn brought to the table, and six brand new songs created together. Between using some of the finest Bay Area studio musicians to record the material, and painstaking time spent on every detail, from writing, to recording, to mixing, the result is an album on which every track is a gem.

On the album: Dawn Rose - Acoustic guitar & vocals; Tom Corwin - Bass & vocals; Gawain Mathews - Guitars & mandolin, John R. Burr - Grand piano, Hammond B-3 organ, other keyboards; David Tucker - Drums and percussion; Skyler Jett - Back-up vocals; Sandy Griffith - Back-up vocals; Manose Newa - Bamboo flute

These Days

Dawn Rose

An intimate, lyrical album with songs of love and life; Dawn's acoustic guitar, grand piano and crystalline vocals are embellished by producer John Beland's guitars and keys.

Share intimate moments with singer songwriter, Dawn Rose. Her twelve song debut touches on a variety of styles, from finger-picking folk to easy rockers, powerful ballads to a hint of jazz, with songs written throughout her twenty year career. The songs of love, loss, hope, family and the world give a glimpse into the heart of this artist. Recorded initially at Prairie Sun in Cotati, California, Dawn performed all the songs solo, accompanying herself either on acoustic guitar or grand piano. Later, producer John Beland of the "Flying Burrito Brothers" added his amazing touches on guitar, bass and keys.
