After 10 years of training and performing the classical and choral genre, Dawn decided to follow her passion for jazz. She quit her job as a flight stewardess for Singapore Airlines in 2003 to commit her time and energy into singing full-time, engaged vocal trainer Babes Conde (Philippines/Singapore) for jazz and pop vocal training and has not looked back since .Her hunger to understand and better execute her craft led her to New York for classes with Tania Travers, and the legendary Barry Harris in 2006. She also attended a Master class with Grammy award winning jazz vocalist, Kurt Elling. This album sees her performing exciting covers of jazz classics from Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Cannonball Adderley as well as popular Brazilian tunes from the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Maria Rita.
