DAWN x KOSHER
The KOSHER Brand is honored to collaborate with Dawn Richard at a watershed moment in her creative career, as she receives outstanding reviews for her latest studio album, SECOND LINE. It was released on April 30, 2021 through Merge Records. The title refers to the parade tradition of the same name practiced in Dawn's hometown of New Orleans.
Inspired by the album, this collection merges the humanity of the independent artist and the machinery required to realize their dreams.

Dawn Richard has evolved from membership in Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money to become one of the more progressive forces in left-field pop, R&B, and electronic music. Since working closely with the instigator of those two groups, Sean "Diddy" Combs, the singer, songwriter, and producer has released several conceptual albums, from Goldenheart (2013) to Second Line (2021), which include a Billboard Top Ten R&B/hip-hop distinction for the former and a pair of subsequent Top Five entries on the Dance/Electronic chart. Dawn evades genre restrictions with emotive and frequently thrilling results, and connects the past to the future by honoring her Louisiana Creole and Haitian heritage with visionary instinct. In addition to her work in the studio and on-stage, Dawn is an actor and animator.
