Scene Magazine had the pleasure of interviewing Kimberly Dawn and wanted to know about her inspirations as an artist, charitable contributions to society and how she finds balance through her everyday life. Kimberly Dawn draws her inspiration from many things such as people, places and life experiences that brings her back through memory lane and tells a story with the lyrics which drives her passion for music and life in general.
Though she listens and draws inspiration from other artists of different genre, she prides in staying true to herself, her music and her passion for it. She participates in charity events and uses her skills and talents to help others in need such as Casa Pacifica which helps kids that are abused and neglected, kids that are in and out of foster care as a place to live and receive education and care, a safe haven where they can feel loved and a sense of belonging that gives them self worth and value to society and themselves.

She believes in perseverance, faith in God and inner strength knowing that God has a plan and that he is always in control no matter what life may throw at you or when one suffers from depression and question their self value. We also asked her if she had any advise to the younger generation who has dreams of pursuing the same passion for music, she replied, “Don’t be discouraged when people say no, you’re not good enough or you can’t make it, show persistence and be strong.”
Kimberly uses her natural talent for storytelling and music to express an authentic message of perseverance, humility, courage, and resilience.
Through original songs like “Cadillac Lovers” and “Slow Dancin’ in the Dark” - nominated for Best Country Song at the 2019 Hollywood Music in Media Awards - the Canadian-born musician shares timeless stories of real-life triumph in the never-ending struggle to find bold purpose and powerful self-love. As a mother of four, Dawn’s personal journey toward creating inner strength and balance on the road to living out her passion is one to which many women can relate, and one that she feels particularly suited to tell. “All through growing up, raising a family, and finding myself, music got me past the most difficult times. If my song gives someone else strength to get through the day, then I’ve done what I set out to do.”
