“This saucy debut by soul sistah Dawn Drake is an incredible gift to the world of world music!  She skillfully weaves together her bold poetic lyrics, melodic vocals, and a fusion of danceable rhythms performed by herself and  a very talented band of musicianados.  You’ll love the horns, the deep bass, the compelling percussion…”

– Luis Da SilvaJules Bistro, NYC

“Dawn Drake and her band are at the beginnings
of a fascinating journey to enthusiastically bridge
chasms of cultural and gender disconnect that plagues
so much of pop music’s body politic.
To hear them is to imagine early period jam sessions
between Laura Nyro and Carole King with Sly Stone
and Sergio Mendes sitting in.
Theirs is a playfully intense dynamic that needs to be
seen more”

Darrell McNeill, Director, Black Rock Coalition, Curator Brooklyn Academy of Music Cafe, NYC
