Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with Dawson Fuss. Dawson is one of those ‘one of a kind’ artists that, while he is young, is also wise beyond his years. To accomplish, at his age, what he has accomplished so far has to make you wonder where he is headed and how he is poised to make the music industry a part of him and not the other way around.
In this interview, we capture Dawson at that very magical moment where he makes his music his career and how a new artist should really think and plan the next few years as Dawson is doing.
We also get a first listen at Dawson’s new track titled ‘Nothing Really Changes’, which dropped today (April 4th). Filled with that sound that is signature and as memorable as it is melodic, Dawson adds a notch to his career gun with this track with this timestamp of a true artist evolving into himself. This is what music is meant to be.

About Dawson Fuss
A Santa Barbara native, Dawson Fuss has been singing his entire life, propelling him to pursue a career in music where he can transform emotions into lyrics through songwriting. “I come to life whenever I can perform in front of an audience,” he says.
His unique pop sound is influenced by artists such as Ruel, Rex Orange County and Conan Gray. In a recent interview, Dawson said, “Singing makes me feel liberated. It makes me feel Free. Being able to be completely connected with my body and mind while simultaneously connecting with the audience makes me transcend to a different realm. Any kind of negative feelings I have beforehand immediately vanish as I ease into the space of the song. It’s magic.”
As he matured, Dawson’s passion for music has continued to flourish. Recently, he placed in singing competition Teen Star Santa Barbara, judged by American Idol’s Randy Jackson. After showcasing his original song, “Real Boys Don’t Cry,” Jackson proclaimed of Dawson, “a star is born.” His 2021 EP, edge of adolescence, was met with raves from the press, and garnered over 100k streams and 20k fans and listeners on Spotify. In his latest release, “Nothing Really Changes,” following his 2021 release, Fuss reflects on the simplicities of childhood through rose-colored glasses.
His music explores themes of confusion and challenges as he struggles with the difficulties of adolescence and balancing the sharp edge between being a kid and becoming an adult. When Dawson isn’t creating music, he’s a proud advocate of organizations, like The Trevor Project, who he partnered with during his previous release to raise funds, and exploring other mediums of art that he’s passionate about, including fashion and visual arts. Dawson has worked alongside video artist Anastasia Delmark, aptly reflecting his enthusiasm for various artistic means of expression. As he approaches the final months of high school, Dawson also embarks on his own artistic journey towards independence, grappling with the hurdles posed by adulthood and his new sense of autonomy.
Dawson continues to develop his unique voice through collaborations with writers Luke Matthew, Will Everett, and Yaron. Stay tuned for new music from Dawson Fuss in the coming months.
