Multi-platinum singer/songwriter, Dawn Richard, announced the release of her highly anticipated solo EP, Armor On. The nine-track EP, is the introduction to Richard's Goldenheart Trilogy, a conceptual project about a lover fighting to protect her heart. The album is being Executive Produced by Richard and Grammy Nominated Producer/Songwriter Andrew “Druski” Scott (Trinitee 5:7, From Above, Michelle Williams, Letoya Luckett).

Richard is no stranger to battle. In 2005, the New Orleans native competed against over 10,000 girls for a coveted spot in Sean “P.Diddy” Combs girl group on the Making The Band reality TV series. Through rigorous rehearsals, eliminations and even becoming a Hurricane Katrina victim, the chanteuse persevered and even created the name for the mega Pop group, Danity Kane. After two platinum albums, the group disbanded in front of millions of viewers due to various reasons. Refusing to sail into obscurity, the singer/songwriter continued to write and reference demos for Diddy who eventually decided to make her a part of his hybrid Hip-Hop trio, Dirty Money.

“The transition was a new experience for me,” says Richard. “But, music has always been the focal point which enabled me to continue without faltering.”

In 2011, Richard released A TellTale Heart mixtape – the prelude to Armor On and Goldenheart. In a single week, the mixtape received over 1,000, 000 downloads shocking both Richard and her doubters.

“I put out this project to see if fans were comfortable with the idea of me being a solo artist,” states Richard. “Not only were they comfortable, but I didn't lose the Danity Kane or Dirty Money supporters and actually gained a new audience.”

“Armor On is a musical graphic novel of what [she's] been through in the past six years,” proclaims Grammy Nominated producer/songwriter Druski. “It's bold, innovative and yet at the same time honest – that's why we're calling it 'Heart music'. It's something that I truly feel R&B is lacking nowadays.”

“I wanted to create a musical novel so that when you listened to it you felt as if you had a cathartic experience,” remarks Richard. “For me, this EP is everything that I couldn't say, was told not to say and was told I'd never say. I want the lyrics to move you, challenge you and sonically inspire you. In 'heart music' there are no boundaries or limits. We have the ability to fight, sword in hand and armor on.”

Previously, the songstress released the smash holiday single,“December Sky”, which reached the top 40 on iTunes R&B/Soul charts and premiered her video for the fan favorite,“SMFU (Save Me From U)” on 106 & Park. Armor On is slated to debut on March 27, 2012 exclusively on iTunes.
