The Dawning


The Dawning offers songs from Canada, the United States, Cuba, Belgium, Russia and Brazil. These songs of intense love and obsessive passion touch on themes of love, nature, hope, and inspiration. Teaming up with Yves Laroche on piano and Tom Posner on double bass, Rachel remakes standard tunes into luscious voyages in and of themselves. Rachel sings in English, French, Spanish and Russian.
