For artists, power is an elusive, yet valuable, currency to possess. Some spend their entire lives on a quest to control their artistry. But what many people don’t get—and what singer-songwriter Dawn understands fully—is that power is not an external force you can search for. Power is something that comes from within, and how you choose to wield it is what will ultimately define you as a person and as a creative.

Dawn finds her power in three central places: her voice, strength (physical and emotional), and work. When she’s able to harness all three at once, good luck stopping her.
