Dawn Dineen: 'Tomboys (You're Oh So Fine)'

Dawn Dineen
Dawn Dineen

Singer and songwriter Dawn Dineen takes a DIY approach to writing and recording her own style of bedroom folk-pop. She describes her music as, "an eclectic little sister of folk-rock with indie-pop cousins running around the house".

Dawn Dineen's album The Ghostly Apple Tree consists of lo-fi, uniquely structured songs. With Dawn playing and recording most of the parts on her album, she keeps everything personal while capturing ideas that are spontaneous. Her layered vocal arrangements on "Tomboy" create a complex melody with busy keyboard, guitar, and whistles. She also includes additional drum loops, cello arrangements, and cassette recordings of a seance from when Dawn was seven years old.

The album was released on her own record label, Yarner Records. She recently finished a tour of the East Coast with her band the Cue.
