Mad Mackerel Recommends…Dawn Kinnard

Dawn Kinnard possesses one of those voices that sounds like it floated out from a 1920s jazz cafe – believe us, describing it as smoky doesn’t come near to doing it justice.

She recently released her second album Wrong Side of the Dream and it is a surprising and engaging listen with plenty of musical left turns that stop it from ever lapsing into the predictable or formulaic. She confidently matches literate, witty lyrics to a range of musical styles from 50s girl group harmonies to white soul to blues and country and all with a jazz tinge. Best of all, each and every track showcases that unique voice.

Her new single is out on 1st November and is called Are You Still Crazy About Yourself?, you can stream it below.

We also have a rather fetching acoustic version of another album standout track The Cost of Love as a free giveaway for you as well.


Visit her MySpace here. Buy the album from Amazon here.
