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,
performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, and a top-200 entry on the
Billboard charts for her album *Parts of Speech*. She contributed to the #1
album *The Hamilton Mixtape*; her track, “Congratulations,” has notched
over 5 million streams. As a writer, she’s been published by *The New York
Times Magazine,* broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio, published two
literary collections of her own, and is set to release her first hardcover
collection with Dutton Books in the fall of 2018. She’s been covered by
*Pitchfork*, *Forbes*, and *The Wall Street Journal* amongst others. *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 a ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor. Dessa’s third
full-length album *Chime* (Doomtree Records), listed by NPR as one of
2018’s most anticipated records, is out now.
