Brodie Dawson

When Brodie Dawson takes the main stage at Sunfest Friday, Aug. 1, at 5:15 it will be the realization of a dream for the Vocalist of the Year at the 2014 Vancouver Island Music Awards.

Using her great voice in what Dawson calls soulful folky blues, this performer is determined to take the country music world by storm.

She says her musical voyage has come full circle, beginning on Vancouver Island where she opened for Juno award winner Ray Bonneville at her very first show and going on to Montreal where she sang in clubs and recorded her first CD before migrating up to Yellowknife. Now, she calls the Comox Valley home.

Dawson has shared stages with such performers as Wil, Tracy Riley, Annie Becker, Rick Fines, and Serena Ryder and appeared on CBC’s Vinyl Café. Her debut CD The Lost Tapes contains music that’s now been found and remastered but to hear her live is a special treat.
