In the right corner, wearing a brown top and jeans – Dawn Tyler Watson. A woman who posesses the voice of an angel. Vocal chords blessed from deep within …
On the left, bearded and loaded with guitar fingers talented beyond comprehension – Paul Deslauriers. A man who should be writing the score for spaghetti westerns 2013.
The duo had just recently completed an album and they appeared on stage to promote it. ‘What a debut’ if the response of the audience that evening was any indication …
The show commenced with trepidation, musically and the amount of love being tossed around the L’Astral. Well – that did not last long.
‘Thrill Me Up’ broke the ice and the energy kept filling the glasses. The song is one of the new ones on the pair’s album. A song which has caught on in the Ottawa region and has become a staple on the airwaves. An upbeat kind of song with Paul and Dawn’s voices matching intermittently. A tune which keeps great company by blues standards with a chorus to die for.
The audience began to tune in and another new song; Small Ceremonies, was the backbreaker. A beautifully sung ballad. Watson’s inner child playing nonchalantly with Deslaurier’s tender riffs. A bedtime tale meant to be serenaded to a bride or groom to be…
Watson’s fiance was on hand back then among the patrons, amorous banter took center stage as ‘Miss’ Dawn urged the audience to appreciate the one special person in their lives. All the while – while encouraging the single people to retain hope. A beautiful message from a beautiful songstress and person.
The jaw – dropping moment came halfway through the second set. Jacques Brel‘s song; ‘Ne me Quitte Pas‘, made famous by none other than Edith Piaf – may have brought tears to some people’s eyes. A fact which was pointed out by a standing ovation upon completion.
Paul Deslauriers and Dawn Tyler Watson go together as two songbirds should. Deslauriers, along with Steve Hill – is the best guitarist in the province of Quebec and maybe in Canada. Watson has few equals in the voice department.
