New Zealand-born, US-based artist Estella Dawn is a multifaceted musician who is also a songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and producer. Her latest release “Vixen” caught our attention and it was only right to share with the rest of our readers. The track is an upbeat pop/R&B infused record that dwells on positive affirmations for anyone having doubts about themselves especially when it comes to their sexuality, shape, etc. Dawn delivers a commanding vocal performance ripe with evocative lyrics on the topic and implores listeners to not give in to societal pressures and live their best life regardless of what people feel or think about them. The track was inspired by Dawn’s own experiences with external pressures and prejudices and has come to realize that only she has the power to be happy in her own skin.
The expressive visuals were directed by Gio Toninelo of Rocket House Pictures who taps into the spirit of the song. From the vibrant choreography, color scheme and coordination, and display of individuals from different backgrounds, the visual achieves its aim of showing the full spectrum of humans who walk this Earth.
The US-based Dawn writes and records her vocals and piano as well as co-producing all aspects of her music. Building on this work, 2021 began strong with another 4 singles released in January with “Vixen” being the 5th, Estella is back in the studio recording and producing her first full-length album with a band set to be released in early 2022.
