Dawn Richard talks solo career and ‘Golden Heart’ album with TheKidFrench [Video]
With the music industry so wrapped around the notion of numbers, commercial music and sales, its always great to meet people who still have a genuine passion about making music for its initial use. I sat with Dawn Richard (former member of Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money) to talk about her breath of fresh air as an independent solo artist and being the boss of her own ship. If you haven’t been keeping up with the New Orleans songstress you’d be shocked to know that she recently held the #1 spot on iTunes R&B charts for her Armor On EP with no major label and just recently scored a crazy distribution deal for her January 15th release of Golden Heart. (which she promised me she wasn’t pushing back) Take a look as me and Dawn talk about her life as a solo career, what drives her passion for music and receiving respect from R&B pioneers Brandy and Kelly Rowland.
