The band is made up of Dawn McCarthy who left the New York music scene back in 97 to move to Okland, California to bring in a funk. However she has does worked with Dan Rathbun on much for her music energy. There are family members in the band that you will hear ever, so often if you pick up one of their CDs. My favorite would have to be The Family Album that a friend gave to me recently.
Dawn's voice is a bit of a throw back of Janis Joplin, at times..but with an old folk twist. I have doubts Janis could ever be this sublime. Much of her music is story-telling. But she has real musicians to back her up. This is music you could rest too. Picture a different time in your head. It'll make you smile. It'll make you wonder why you are listening to it. And is everything relative? Perhaps it really is.
(make sure to listen to Eternal..the last video)
So far the band has produced 4 cds. The latest is The Transit Rider.
