With what Grammy Award winning artist Macy Gray calls, “a beautiful voice,” and what MTV Iggy calls, “an eclectically soulful style,” soul/r&b singer Dawen explores the gamut of American life. Fusing soul/r&b with funk and jazz, Dawen offers up a lyrical style that appeals to both the emotions and intellect.
In his debut album American Me, Dawen covers everything from identity and social issues, to love, loss and redemption. American Me is available now on iTunes and Amazon. The music video for his single “Wake Up” is on YouTube.
A frequent guest blogger, Dawen has written for Bicoastal Bitchin’ and Slant Eye for the Round Eye. Currently, Dawen is guest blogging for MTV Iggy as he travels around the US and Asia on his American Me Tour. Recently, Dawen performed for Macy Gray on her web show, a memorable experience for the both of them, leaving her feeling “flushed” and impressed with his vocals.

Hey Folks: I've started posting vids on my YouTube channel. The first is my cover of Maxwell's new single "Pretty Wings."
*IMPORTANT*Please Rate, Comment and *SUBSCRIBE* on my YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com/dawen
It would really help me out a lot as an independent artist. My aim is to put a new clip up every 2 weeks. I'm also taking requests so put yours in now (I've already got a few for Halo)! Hope you enjoy the vid! Go to my channel to see the other vids! www.youtube.com/dawen
