Dawn Coulshed

Influenced by the traditional music of her Scottish roots and her classical studies as a pianist, Dawn Coulshed is an ever evolving singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Music blogs have compared her to early Maggie Rogers and Joni Mitchell and her single ‘Same Side’ featured on Mahogany’s Spotify playlist. Coulshed’s arrangement of her own song ‘Sing for us’ was performed by the Roundhouse Choir as part of BBC 6 Music Festival 2020 in Camden, London. There is a sensitivity in Coulshed’s instrumental playing that draws the listener in and allows her vocals to soar above as her lyrics reveal honest, human stories.
