Dawson Cowals has a haunting voice that demands your ear. An artist who can indeed stand "unplugged", Cowals offers a beautiful array of acoustic scores with an unapologetic social conscience. It works. Faith meets fire and speaks to what is missing in the emptiness of many other works. A polished artist with a bright, shiny soul.
- Sue Braiden, CBC Radio

Originally released September 5, 2001, this rerelease of Dawson's seventh full-length album showcases his unique acoustic styling with driving rhythms, percussive tapping, and beautiful finger picking. "Unplugged" offers some of Dawson's most heartfelt songs delivered in a raw and honest format, stripped of any production clutter. His lyrics will quickly draw you in with a vocal styling similar to Dave Matthews and challenge you to examine and hopefully find meaning in your life. From "Sticks & Stones" which warns us to guard our tongues to "Stubborn Man" that humbly admits having to go back around the mountain another time to learn a lesson the hard way. In "I'm Not That Strong" Dawson laments the mistake of taking a close friend for granted and paints the emotions he was feeling in the mind of the listener through his lyrics:

Left standing in the rain / Hope clutched like an umbrella with holes in it / Hair plastered to my face / Can't you see that it's killing me to admit // That I was wrong / Misconstrued that you'd / Be there all along / I was wrong / Without you, I'm on my own / And I'm not that strong //

This rerelease features two new tracks: "Beloved" and "Restore My Soul." All of the songs have been digitally remastered from the original studio recordings. The track order has also been slightly altered to provide a hopefully more pleasing listening experience. If you enjoy acoustic music then you will love the live feel of this CD. All of the songs were recorded live in the studio to capture Dawson's typical coffee shop playing style. For fans of Dave Matthews, John Mayer, or Bebo Norman.

Dawson has been writing music for over 14 years and has a total of 10 full-length CDs containing over 130 unique songs between them. Some of the more recent recordings include his modern Christmas collection featuring the smash-hit title track, "Born Is the King"; his full-length studio recording "Don't Look Back" with songs like "Green", "Seraph's Wings", and "Without You"; an all-acoustic collection of new and older favorites called "Unplugged" with songs such as "I'm Not That Strong" and "Sticks & Stones"; to the most recent live concert release, "Live at the Solid Rock Cafe 10.12.2001", with 17 songs for a play time of almost 80 minutes!

Besides writing and performing the songs on this CD, Dawson also did the graphic design work for the packaging. When he isn't busy singing he also does design work for many other artists from the Pacific Northwest to Australia. The artwork for this CD started with a photo of his guitar in a field of daisies at Starker Arts Park in Corvallis, Oregon, and was then transformed into his signature colorized guitar in a black & white photo. Lyrics are included in the booklet for those of you who might wonder what exactly he is singing in French on the lullaby, Mon chéri.

Dawson has played in small coffee shop venues and for outdoor amphitheatre crowds of thousands, but wherever you hear him you will come away feeling that you had the chance to share an incredible evening of acoustic storytelling with a from-the-heart performer.
