​​​​​​​​​​​​​Concert #6

Mar. 31/23 (Friday) -

Dawn Pemberton Band (Blues/Soul)

Dawn Pemberton has deep musical roots that take her powerful voice from gospel and soul to jazz, funk and world music. She has become a staple of the Vancouver music scene and can often be found tearin’ it up as a vocalist, teacher, facilitator, choir director and “go to girl” for live performances and studio sessions. A passionate songwriter and performer Dawn crafts her music with a sense of adventure, quirkiness, and serious groove and shapes it into her own unique and dynamic package. Tight, expressive and bold, Dawn will hit you where it counts, funk you up and make you say “Go ‘head!”

Dawn Pemberton is the secret weapon of funk and soul groups all over Western Canada. Dawn has shared the stage with the likes of Maceo Parker, Linda Tillery, John Lee Sanders, The Sojourners, John Boutté and Dutch Robinson. Her gifts have been featured in the music of future jazz group 1Luv (Sonar Kollektiv) and in blues juggernaut, The Harpoonist and The Axe Murderer.

In addition, Dawn is a radio host for two shows: On the Rise and Get on the Good Foot on CKUA Radio Network.

Dawn’s creative voice has been bubbling to the surface for the better part of a decade. Her proven track record as a singer and performer is undeniable and the time has finally come for her to express her unique vision. “I enjoyed helping others bring their projects to life and after a while I wanted to experience the process for myself, from beginning to end. It was important to be in full control of the musical choices so that they truly reflected my personality and vibe.”

Her album, 'Say Somethin’ , is about having the courage to be vulnerable, about opening up what’s in our hearts and on our minds. “It’s a necessary pep talk to myself and hopefully others. We have to be our biggest fans and motivators.” Vibrant, genuine, and soulful, Dawn brings it with a sense of adventure and serious groove and creates a unique and dynamic package.
