Over many years, Dawn has planted seeds of music, art and writing in her life as she was raised in New Jersey, attended college in New York City and lived two times overseas in Europe. In the summer of 1999 Dawn wrote her first song as a gift for her sister's birthday and from that point on continued to do so as a hobby until 2005, when she began to dedicate herself to music as a career. Dawn is grateful to call Los Angeles her current home, though it was in San Diego where she first got started. She remembers the open mic at Twiggs' Green Room where she let her songs be heard for the first time.
It was at this venue where she began to find her musical bearings and nurtured the need to share and express her music through monthly performances. Her successes since that time have included receiving the San Diego HAT Award for Best New Acoustic Artist in 2007, being featured on CTN'S Java Jams show, as well as on the KUSI and NBC San Diego morning news programs. She is also featured on the Bushwalla song, "Mayhem is Beautiful," for the San Diego Fire Relief Compilation CD. Dawn Mitschele is dedicated to producing honest music founded in the principles of love and gratitude, and she hopes to carry this message to her listeners, especially during live shows.
After a recent performance, a local musician expressed that, "people were just hanging on to her every word. I think that's the difference between someone who sings a song and someone who truly believes what they are saying." Read more on Last.fm.
