Dawn Tyler Watson

Origin: Ontario / Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Vocal

Genres: Blues, Jazz

Hailed as "Montreal's Queen of the Blues," singer, songwriter and actress Dawn Tyler Watson commands both stage and screen with her natural presence and silky vocals. Born in England and raised in Ontario, she launched her career with the debut album, Ten Dollar Dress, featuring her group, Dawn Tyler Blues Project. In 2005 and 2007, she won the Canadian Maple Blues Award for Female Vocalist of the Year, and was later named International Female Artist of the Year at the Trophées France Blues. Her talent was perhaps best described in Blues Review Magazine: "Watson, in a nutshell, smokes." Her recent discography includes En duo (2007) and Southland (2013) with Paul Delsauriers, with whom she regularly performs at the Festival.
