Dawson Dowdy

Dawson is a nine-year-old piano prodigy who composes his own blues and jazz music. His talents are extraordinary. People who hear his music can't believe how young he actually is. He has his first album, 'October Ace', coming out in just a few months featuring 6 of his original compositions. He's backed up by 'Los Guys' of Tempe, AZ and two of the songs feature vocals by Hans Olson, a Blues Hall of Fame member. Copies of the CD will be available for purchase on his website- watch for details. He will be auditioning for a major studio recording contract this spring.

”He's like a little Ray Charles!” ”He's a cross between Billy Joel and Jerry Lee Lewis!” ”An old soul in a young body. His music is decades beyond his chronological age.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
