Dawn Penn is one of the original queens of reggae music. A native of Kingston, Jamaica, she grew up in a musical family, studying piano, classical violin and performing with her sisters Pat and Audrey in churches. Her first recording was â€œWhen Iâ€™m Gonna Be Freeâ€ was in 1966. She was then recorded by the legendary Coxsone Dodd at Studio One and her first hit came in 1967 with the title â€œYou Donâ€™t Love Me â€“ No, No, Noâ€, one of the most famous reggae hits of all-time which has been covered by countless artists around the world including Beyonce, Rihanna, Sean Paul, Wu-Tang Clan, Eve, J Millz, Mims, and Lily Allen to name a few.
Over the next several years several singles were released including three: â€œBlue Yes Blueâ€, â€œHereâ€™s The Keyâ€ Long Day Short Nightâ€ "Blue Yes Blue and "Are you There" on Prince Busterâ€™s Label. In 1970, she moved to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands to explore her roots on her fatherâ€™s side. She returned to Jamaica in 1987, re-recording her single "You Donâ€™t Love Meâ€ No, No, No,with Steelie and Cleavie in 1991. Steelie & Cleavieâ€™s version (which they recorded to commemorate Studio Oneâ€™s 35th Anniversary) was a crossover hit in the mainstream pop charts and was picked up by Heartbeat in the U.S. King Jammyâ€™s recording that was done the year before with Bounty Killer, Dennis Brown and Ken Boothe, under separate recording on the Greensleeves label became a dancehall smash.
In 1993, Big Beat (Atlantic Records) signed Penn to an 8-year album deal, and by the following year she was back on the charts with her re-recorded dancehall version of â€œYou Donâ€™t Love Me â€“ No, No, Noâ€. The single charted in 68 countries, was featured in advertisements for Nissan and Churchill and the album was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 1995 she produced and recorded her original track â€œWhat Do You Do?â€, followed up by Delroy Williams and herself producing the album called â€œCome Againâ€ on Trojan Records which sold close to 110,000 copies. Her 2000 single â€œNever Everâ€ was released on Jet Star, becoming a smash hit on BBC Radio 1.
In 2001 she was honoured with the â€œMartin Luther King Awardâ€ by Caribbean Images in recognition of her contribution to Jamaican music. From 2002-2004 she collaborated with top U.S. hip- hop artists including John Forte of the Fugees on (â€œWhat You Gonna Doâ€ and â€œMercy pon weâ€) culminating in the release of the R & B Album- â€œNever Hustle The Musicâ€, touring extensively across Europe. In the US, Cocoa Brovaz (â€œSpit Againâ€) was a Project on Rawkus.
She toured Hawaii with Alpha Blondy in 2005, officially releasing â€œGrowing Upâ€ to wide acclaim. Since then, Penn has been thrilling vintage reggae lovers and crossover fans alike at festivals in the U.K., Sweden, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Russia, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and Italy.
