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.
Gear

Mahogany 7-ft grand Petrov piano, Yamaha S-80 keyboard, antique Hammond Organ

”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.”
