Brigid Dawson

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brigid Dawson is a musician who sings and plays keyboard and tambourine for Thee Oh Sees.[1] She is noted for her "whimsical" harmonies[2] and is credited with helping front man John Dwyer write melodies.[3] Reviewing a show they played in New York, Impose Magazine wrote, "Brigid Dawson's backing vocals are the band's silver lining".[4] Soundscapes noted in an album review, "Once again, Dwyer’s secret weapon is Brigid Dawson, whose vocal interplay gives them a leg-up in the male-dominated garage rock scene."[5] Her voice has been compared to Kim Deal[6] and Exene Cervenka,[7] among others.

Brigid occasionally performed as "Mix Tapes" with Meric Long of The Dodos.[8] She is a UK native by way of San Marin[9][10][11]
