Originally from New Zealand, Estella Dawn is capturing quite the following here in the US with her steady output of new music that is relevant, relatable and meaningful. “Pretty” is the latest release to contain all these attributes and more.

Estella is a multi-talented artist who writes and records her vocals and piano, as well as co-produces all aspects of her music. The haunting piano intro on “Pretty” is a fantastic start to a song with a profound message that will resonate with so many on a personal level. “Pretty” isn’t a shallow tune about good looking appearances. It delves deeper into the mistaken belief of thinking yourself as inadequate and being your own self-saboteur. The song becomes an empowering reminder that you are enough just the way you are. The lyrics are right on target to deliver a great message. How true is this line – “Perfection’s all about Perception.” Estella’s vocal delivery is nothing short of melodic excellence.

This September, Estella is heading into the studio to record and produce her first full-length album. So be on the look for that and more to come from this rising star.
