Dawn Penn

Jamaican vocalist, she studied piano and violin at school which led to her winning a musical scholarship at the Jamaican Independent Festival. She began her career, as so many did with Coxsone Dodd at Studio One in the late 60?s, recording the hit ?You Don?t Love Me (No No No)?. More records followed and she provided backing vocals on some of crossover artist Johnny Nash?s biggest hits. She then left Jamaica for the peaceful island of Tortola to bring up her children and it wasn?t until she returned to Jamaica in the late 80s that she started to perform again. She re-recorded her biggest hit ?No No No? for Steely and Clevie and King Jammy, the former making it in to the UK pop charts whilst the latter was a big hit in the Jamaican dancehalls. More singles followed, mixed by the legendary Augustus Pablo but they failed to have the impact of No No No. She still continues to perform and release records today.
