Liz Whitted Dawson, Song Stylist - Singer, Composer, New Thought Jazz (NTJ) Muse

Liz Whitted Dawson, is a consummate Singer/Songwriter with JAZZ leanings and deep sultry range that leave audiences smiling and going inwardly to listen to their own earth voice. She has been singing since the age of 5, starting in church, youth chorus and family group.

Bringing her unique sense of style and class to Los Angeles and Bay Area venues such as The World Stage, Geoffrey's Inner Circle and the Open Mike at the Little Castle, she has graced the stage with such notable Jazz musicians as Earl "Big Juicy" Johnson, Glen Pearson of the Count Basie Orchestra, Yancie Taylor and his Jazztet, Rose Gales, Howlett Smith, Joe Warner, Don "The One" Bell, Jerrell Ballard, Mike Alvidrez, Eric "ET" Tillman Sal Crocker, Ranzel Merritt, Sr. and Ellen Hoffman.

In 2008, Liz also sang background with Paula West and the late George Mesterhazy (Arranger/Pianist), Ed Cherry (Guitarist), Barak Mori (Bassist) and the late Tony Reedus (Drummer).

She has an innate sense of timing and tone. Liz can deliver a standard set up with her stylized affinity for walking bass line from the likes of Michael Alvidrez, Hashima Williams or place her signature stamp on originals such as Ancestors Call penned with the Late Prince Lasha and New York based Impressario, Rudi Mwongozi. Known for making cameo appearances with Lady SunRise @ the 57th Street Gallery, she loves to hit the jam sessions and has sat in with Eric Tillman's set @ Savannah Jazz, San Francisco. 

Liz has been the guest vocalist with Yancie Taylor’s Jazztet, in Oakland and Rose Gales Jam Session at The World Stage Performance Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.  Liz produced her own “It’s Time” performances at The World Stage in November 2015 to a packed house and September 2017 (Fruits of Labor) for two sets.   The amazing quartet was lead by Earl "Big Juicy" Johnson, Music Director and pianist; with Jerrell Ballard, on drums; Mike Alvidrez, bass and special guest, Sal Crocker, saxophone. Liz currently serves as a licensed Practitioner, ALSP at the Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, CA.

Come along and experience the positive vibe and hip swing of Liz Whitted Dawson.  You will leave uplifted, enlivened and inspired to: Do your Thing and Shine your Light. Tell your Friends that this is one Lady's show you cannot miss.

All praises to the Ancestors and those, such as her Father, Haywood Franklin Whitted, Sr. and Mother, Laura B. Whitted, who laid their delicate musings within the Music and Performance style of Liz Whitted Dawson.
