Discovery: Dawn Riding

The Difference is the latest song to be released by American singer-songwriter Dawn Riding, with it’s subtle charm displaying a haunting beauty that is sometimes hard to find in the musical world.

By Jane Howkins

The track is basically just Dawn’s vocals and her acoustic guitar, and this arrangement really helps to give the track meaning. It’s a country song, however the topic of the track is a little different to what you might expect. It’s about the social and political upheaval that has occurred across America within the last few months, with Dawn aiming to shine a light upon the racism faced by black people within the USA at the moment. It’s a poignant track and we believe songs like this are very important at the moment – have a listen to The Difference below and see what you think!
