"Dawn of Texas"

Katherine is a serious writer and performer. Her realism is amazing.
And her music can be positively heart stopping. If you’re looking for a Texas musician
with knowledge, skill, talent, and a way of expressing your own deepest thoughts and
doubts in an instantly appreciable and apprehensible manner, access her website at
I’m convinced that Katherine Dawn will be a permanent part of the Texas Music
Heritage. If you haven’t done so already – give her ten minutes. She will become a
necessary part of your own.

"Katherine Dawn~Sonic Treats~"

A roller coaster ride of sonic treats and songs that do not stop. "Wow! I am down to track 6
and freaking out. I don't remember hearing this side of KD before. If this is a preview of the rest
of the two disc release Katherine Dawn ~25 In TX~ it is going to be one wild ride."

Born in San Antonio, TX and raised in the Texas Hill Country.

K.D. started paying dues early, and attention to the countless mentors
of Texas music legends in her midst along the way.
She still does, and her release "25 in TX" is a very interesting if not entertaining
collection of recordings from 1978-2003.

K.D. says:
"I strive to be the best person I can be everyday and am very grateful
to be a part of the universal language in our world.
The music always leads me to the performances and people.
My only hope is still be able to reach the goals I have set for myself, family, and friends."

K.D.'s soaring, gusty, elegant vocals are a perfect compliment to her hard driving/delicate
style of guitar ~ acoustic, electric & bass.
