Dawn Pemberton: Vancouver soul dynamo Dawn Pemberton has a deep musical foundation rooted in tradition. Dawn spent her formative years surrounded by a family of multi- instrumentalists and developed a true love of music as a young girl. She is heavily influenced by rhythm, and is drawn to the percolating under current of soul, jazz and funk which is infused in everything that she does: “I‟ve got a rhythmic stream running through me at all times. It‟s all about the groove for me.”

Dawn Pemberton is the secret weapon of funk and soul groups all over Western Canada and she has shared the stage with the likes of Maceo Parker, Linda Tillery, The Sojourners, John Boutté and Dutch Robinson. Her gifts have also been featured in the music of future jazz group 1Luv (Sonar Kollektiv), soul-jazz collective The Nightcrawlers, and blues juggernaut, The Harpoonist and The Axe Murderer. A staple of the West Coast music scene, Dawn can be found tearing it up as a vocalist, songwriter, arranger, and go-to live performer and session musician.

Say Somethin’ is Dawn‟s long awaited debut solo album, released in 2014.On leadoff single “Deeper‟, soulful grooves meet swirling organs, punchy horns, and tight drum breaks that pay homage to Dawn‟s roots in gospel but update the sound with a feel all her own. Tight, expressive and bold, Dawn will hit you where it counts, funk you up and make you say “Go 'head!”

CHANCE LOVETT and the Broken Hearted (Vancouver/Victoria)

Chance is a local favourite, first making her stamp on the Victoria music scene fronting retro-soul band The Chantrelles (2012-13). Chance now lives in Vancouver, where she commands a new and exciting band under her own name. Garden City Grooves is thrilled to have this incredible talent return to the city where she will re-connect with former Chantrelles alumni and other local musicians to play some fantastic new original material.
