Dawson Cowals [Before You Sleep] | Posted December 20, 2011 Staff Reviewer
Dawson Cowals is an independent Christian singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon and I've recently had the privilege to listen to his new single "Before You Sleep" from his upcoming release "The White Album." It has a great lullaby feel to the song. As a Christian father of three young daughters I love the inclusion of Scripture in the lyrics. The last stanza is very prayerful and biblical--"Blessed is the day that the Lord has made, We all rejoice and are glad in it, But though this day is gone, We know that His mercies are new, With the coming of the dawn." This is a great song to celebrate God's blessings and mercies daily. Amen. Dawson's folk musical style is great for fans of Bebo Norman and Jason Gray.
