Hot on the heels of the release of her sixth album entitled Mad Love, Dawn Tyler Wat-son returns to the Yardbird Suite stage with her eclectic Soul driven Blues.

Born in England and raised in Ontario, Dawn adopted Montreal as her home after earning her BFA in Jazz Studies and Theatre from Concordia University. 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 apearing 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. She is also the recipient of three Canadian Maple Blues Awards and nine Quebec Lys Blues Awards. She earned the Screaming Jay Hawkins Award for Best Live Performance and a Trophées France Blues for female International Artist of the Year

"Her fabulous voice and incandescent stage presence make her the Queen of the Blues in Montreal." —Journal de Montreal
