Dessa is a multifaceted recording artist known for her versatility and innovation in the world of music. She has a new project called “Bury the Lede” that displays this versatility up front. This Minneapolis, Minnesota artist has made a significant impact on the hip-hop and indie music scenes. Her latest album offers what you would expect: thought-provoking and emotionally charged lyrics that often explore themes of love, identity and the human experience. With a captivating stage presence and a voice that can seamlessly shift between rapping and singing, she showcases this superpower all throughout her latest single “Decoy”.

Dessa has garnered a dedicated following and earned critical acclaim for her boundary-pushing approach to music, making her a respected and influential figure in the contemporary music scene. On this latest project, Dessa continues to expose her thoughts on life, love and relationships all without burying the lede.
