Singer- Songwriter Dawn Tyler Watson


Dawn Tyler Watson, a multi-award-winning singer-songwriter, is known for her soulful and moving performances that have earned her national and global recognition among the blues elite.

With a sound steeped in jazz, soul, rock and gospel, Watson knows how to push the boundaries of traditional blues and to take it to a whole new dimension.  

Pianist Matt Herskowitz


On the other hand, Matt Herskowitz is a versatile artist, a solo piano master, jazzman and classical virtuoso who brings his unique voice to every musical style he performs. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the prestigious Juilliard School of Music, Matt Herskowitz is originally from New York State and has lived in Montreal since 1999.

The show’s title, “20 seconds”, refers to the amount of time it takes for oxytocin to circulate in the body during an embrace, the hormone of love and regulation of fear.

Matt Herskowitz will perform solo and in duet with Dawn, inspired by film music on the theme of love and its challenges.

All profits from the event will be donated to The Women’s Center of Montreal, a non-profit organization created by women, for women, to provide professional, educational, counseling and referral services.
