Scott SheriffIn the early 90's, Dawn was co-producing her songs with Scott Sheriff.   The demos were so compelling, they caught the interest of a major record label and, thanks to Carla Berkowitz (Ondrasik), Dawn was signed to a record deal with Elektra Records in 1993.Carla Berkowitz (Ondrasik)

While recording the album, she worked with some of the top producers, engineers, and performers in the business like, Tommy LiPuma, Bill Schnee, Al Schmidt, Vinnie Caiuta, Nathan East, Michael Brecker, David Pack of Ambrosia, Maurice White & Phillip Bailey of Earth Wind & Fire, and others.

 Tommy Lipuma, Constant Change, Nathan EastAfter the project was complete, no one seemed to like the final mastered album as much as they did the demos.  In fact, her demo version of the song, If I'm Not In Love, was chosen for the Indecent Proposal movie soundtrack, instead of the album version that Elektra   produced.   The Elektra album was never released.  

Dawn was devastated by the Elektra project and felt emotionally unstable and alone in L.A.  She decided to return to Nashville to settle and regroup. 

In 1994 - 2003, she lived and worked between Nashville and Bristol, TN, with her friend and companion, Ann Rowell, but she was never able to thrive there like she had been used to. Despite writing and recording songs like, Almost Christmas Time, It Don't Matter, We Need Each Other, and others, her music was falling on dear ears.  

After returning from L.A. she wasn't considered a country singer, and not entirely welcomed into the Nashville country music community.   She was also rejected by the Nasvhille Gospel community, which she considered well deserved, having lost her moral compass for a while.  

Needing emotional support and inspiration, in 2004 - 2005, she moved back to Pensacola, FL to be near her family.  After much self discovery and improvement, Dawn returned to her fundamental beliefs.  Still seeking the mystery that is God, she has chosen to accept the forgiveness and pardon of Jesus Christ.  

She also re-discovered her love for tennis and is passionately involved in the Pensacola tennis community, which has led her to a whole new world of friends.  

Still in Pensacola as of 2018, she is thriving.  She lives with and enjoys the companionship of her two best friends, Bill and Cherrie Rankin, and writes and records out of the house there in her beautiful studio.  All of her recordings are released on her own label, A Timeless Company, Inc.
