Dawn has been singing since the age of seven when her dad put her on stage with the Glenshaw Players doing Broadway musicals.   She was active in chorus, talent shows, and high school musicals, leading her to her first band Northbound, which became a house band at Seven Springs Mountain Resort.  She went on to co-front Secretariat, and Archer later in the 80’s.  After taking time off for marriage, kids, and cancer in the 90's, Dawn found hope and healing in her love of music, and she went back to her roots and started performing again in 2000 in various plays and Broadway revues with Addis Studios.  She has also performed at venues across Western Pennsylvania with the bands Rendition, Blue Dawn, and Circumference, among other local bands, and did some studio backing vocals on Tobacco Road's self titled CD.  A breast cancer survivor, Dawn was extremely honored to sing during the Survivor Tribute at the Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure in 2010.  She can now be found working with guitarist Greg Priano in the acoustic duo, Power of Two, which, in her words is, "A project with an incredible back story that will make a great song some day. Music is truly medicine for the soul!"

 

    

    

 
Greg has been playing guitar since elementary school as a member of his church’s folk mass guitar ensemble.  After a short hiatus during college, he filled in as an acoustic guitarist in several Christian rock bands and provided acoustic instrumental music for several weddings.  In the early 1990’s, Greg formed the acoustic quartet 4/4 Time, and went on to co-found the Nuclear Blues Band, a blues/rock five-piece band where he played bass until 2005.  After taking an eight-year hiatus, he was most recently seen playing bass in the blues/rock/roots trio Smokestack Three.  Greg has also filled in on bass from time time for Yinzide Out, a rotating house band that hosts open stages around Pittsburgh.  Greg’s latest project has him returning to his acoustic roots in the duo Power of Two with vocalist Dawn Marie.  His influences are diverse, and range from acoustic masters like David Crosby, to blues rockers like Jimi Hendrix, and legendary bassists such as Geddy Lee.
