Dawna Marie is a local singer-songwriter who has been playing music since she was a little girl; first piano and then guitar at age 24. She started writing songs soon after learning a few chords on guitar, but really started playing out about five years ago. She loves and enjoys the simple things in life and takes a sense of wonder in the mundane. She often writes about her real experiences, intermingled with fiction and dreams not yet realized. She often refers to music as her lifeline, and feels stronger and able to live better when she’s out playing or listening to live music. Her favourite thing is when she feels that magic connection between the musician and the listener.
