DAWN RICHARD RELEASES ‘PROJECTION’
‘Projection’ is a stunning rumination on memory that sounds illusory, transient, and in danger of simply flickering out at any moment

and turns at its heart

In August 2013 Richard announced that she would put her solo career on hold to reunite to Danity Kane, the reunion produced a chart topping farewell album DK3. 2015 has marked a new era for the American singer as she launched her new album BlackHeartin January. The record is the second part of Dawn’s thrilling Heart Trilogy and comes exactly two years after her GoldenHeart tribute.
Collaborating with the Los Angeles producer Noisecastle III, BlackHeart is a dose of electronica and alt-R&B that searches for a sound more uniquely “her.” Sonically, with influences from trip hop to electro pop to soul, this album solidifies Dawn as more than just a progressive R&B diva. This album takes her to Future Electro Stardom. Receiving critical acclaim from Fact Magazine, New York Times/LA Times, and Billboard, many have stated that this is her best work yet.
Dawn Richard makes her highly anticipated solo performance in the UK with a very special show at London’s Jazz Cafe on June 2nd 2015. Tickets are on sale now and available at www.gigsandtours.com
