Montreal’s own “Queen of the Blues”, Dawn Tyler Watson has teamed up with virtuoso guitarist and singer/songwriter extrordinaire Paul Deslauriers (Paul Deslauriers Band, Black Cat Bone, Amanda Marshall, France D’Amour, Garou) to create a very unique partnership.
Formed out of a love of performing together, the duo has been captivating audiences with their own brand of feel-good, back porch style entertainment since they joined forces in 2004. Well known for his blistering electric work, Paul strips down and bares a masterful acoustic style all his own, while Dawn, renowned for her powerful stage presence and ability to front any big band with authority, shows a more delicate side. With the simple honesty of two voices and a six-string guitar, they have been creating a buzz on both the national and international Folk and Blues scenes, touring accross Canada, France, and into the US. Their debut album, entitled “en duo” is beautifully produced by Charles Papasoff, and is one of the most raw and unencumbered records to come along in decades. An eclectic mix of old favorites and new songs alike, it explores a rich pallet of styles and moods, seamlessly bending the borders of the Blues from Roots to Soul, and on into Folk and Rock & Roll.
