Lady you should know about: Dawn Penn

February 28, 2010

Bet that when you think of Jamaican reggae, you think of a bunch of dudes. But did you know that Dawn Penn is the queen of Jamaican reggae? She worked with some of the most well-known Jamaican artists and producers in the ’60s, retired for a while, and had a comeback in the ’90s. She defies Jamaican gender (and musical) stereotypes and is still generally awesome!

And, umm…Ghostface Killah has even sampled her. Whoa!
