Elexa Dawson

Sultry soul meets rural roots. Elexa Dawson (Potawatomi) invites you into the lodge to hear songs that your heart already knows how to sing. Accessible yet transcendent, Elexa's captivating red-dirt-honey vocals lay on the listener like a blanket of good feelings, giving the gift of healing through sound. 

Music is Medicine names Elexa's original debut album, and describes the motivation behind sharing story and song. At home in natural environments, and brilliant in theatres, attentive rooms, educational spaces, and cultural venues.
