After a successful career as a jazz artist, Seattle pianist/composer/vocalist Dawn Clement expands her palette of expression into the realm of contemporary pop with Tempest Cobalt. This 10-track collection is a melodic narrative that tenderly reflects on themes such as passages, struggle, redemption and love. Ethereal vocals, delicate tension and elegant harmonies create a dreamy intimacy that invites the listener to lean in just a little closer. The lyrics, with references to nature, color and light, evoke a sense of spacious optimism throughout. Half of the songs on Tempest Cobalt feature a solo Clement on voice and piano. The other half includes Seattle Pop Producer Charlie Smith (Pollens, Throw Me the Statue, Katie Kate) and young talented pop/rock side Woman Lena Simon (Tomten, Kairos, Pollens). Tempest Cobalt is Clement's fourth CD to date and marks her debut as a master storyteller.
