How I Knew Her—comprising 12 autobiographical, introspective songs by Dawn—was produced by her longtime partner Jack Conte. The album was recorded at Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, CA, with a group of accomplished musicians including Ryan Lerman (Ben Folds, A Fine Frenzy) on electric guitar, mandolin, banjo, and acoustic guitar; David Piltch (k.d. lang, Bill Frisell, Bonnie Raitt) on upright bass; Louis Cole (Louis and Genevieve, Pomplamoose); and Matt Chamberlain (Brad Mehldau, Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, Jon Brion) on drums. The studio, where many of Dawn's favorite Tom Waits albums were recorded, enabled the musicians to play one room as a full band. Oz Fritz engineered the album with Conte; it was then mixed by Mike Mogis and mastered by Bob Ludwig. The recording sessions were filmed and will periodically be released as companion videos including those for "Please Don't Scream," "Leslie," and "Araceli," which are viewable on Dawn’s YouTube channel.
