An accomplished and dynamic performer, Watson’s fiery stage presence has earned her national and international recognition. Playing festivals and concert halls across four continents, recording six albums, and appearing on numerous compilations, Dawn has shared the stage with an array of premier artists, including Oliver Jones, Jeff Healey, Koko Taylor, Susan Tedeschi, and Cyndi Lauper. In 2017 Dawn, backed up by the Ben Racine Band, won first place at the 33rd International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN.
