Singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations—her résumé as a musician includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury, co-compositions for 100-voice choir, and multiple entries on the Billboard charts as a solo artist, as a member of the Doomtree hip hop collective, and as a contributor to the #1 album The Hamilton Mixtape with her track Congratulations.
She’s written for The New York Times and National Geographic, presented a TED talk with more than 2 million views, and in 2018 published a memoir that tells the story of her life, career, and an ambitious plan to fall out of love. Her most recent record, Sound the Bells: Recorded Live at Orchestra Hall, was recorded live with the GRAMMY award winning Minnesota Orchestra. The LA Times says Dessa “sounds like no one else.” The Utne Reader calls her a “one-woman powerhouse.” On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor.
