Shepperton, West London-born-and-bred Liv Dawson started singing at a young age and, encouraged by her family, was penning her own songs by the age of 13, inspired by the likes of Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, and Beyoncé. Her first brush with fame came in 2012 when she released her debut single -- a cover of the '50s classic "Here's That Rainy Day" -- on Ark Records with producer Greg Walsh (who had helped Tina Turner launch her solo career). After a couple of years away from the spotlight, Dawson returned in 2016 with her own material in the form of the intimate single "Tapestry." That same year she signed to Method Records -- owned by London-based dance duo Disclosure and home to singer/songwriter Sam Smith -- which released the single "Still." Dawson followed that up with the EP Open Your Eyes, which wed the electronic sound of Disclosure to Dawson's classic-sounding vocals. Working with the likes of SG Lewis and Jimmy Napes, she continued to write and produce new material throughout 2016. At the beginning of the following year, Dawson released two more singles, "Searching" and "Somewhere Good." ~ Rich Wilson
