Kimberley Dawn is a powerful voice. To her friends, her powerful voice is known for speaking out for people or communities in need. To Manitoba radio listeners, that same powerful voice is known for her on air antics – sharing both informative and “always entertaining” information in current community and music news as a radio DJ at both NCI FM and QX104 throughout the years. But most of all, to her music family and fan base – she is known for her powerhouse vocals as the incredible artist that she is!
This multi award winning Aboriginal singer has been a fighter and a survivor in this ever changing music industry. Relentlessly pursuing her dream of singing on stage with a band that is more like family, and for an audience full of amazing and supportive fans, this dream has driven her to get back up and dust herself off whenever this uncharted path knocked her down. And her determination has paid off!
With 5 albums under her belt, she is about to hit the road once again to promote her latest album project “’Til The Cowboys Come Home”. Her first single of the same name, has already hit national radio! And her video for this single has been a popular view on YouTube, gaining more fans every day!
Kimberley Dawn can draw you in with her heartfelt ballads, or inspire you as her music speaks of her aboriginal roots. Before the night is through, she’ll have you dancing and singing along as she sings a sassy – tongue in cheek – cowgirl party song! From aboriginal, to country, and a touch of rock – she’s got it covered! Kimberley Dawn can deliver an entertainment packed evening with her relatable banter of love and life stories as she introduces her songs, followed by a powerful vocal performance night after night. Kimberley Dawn is...a powerful voice.
