To celebrate the November 8 release of Sound the Bells, her groundbreaking live record with the Minnesota Orchestra, Dessa will present a limited run of special performances. For these events, she’ll combine elements of her touring show (backed by a live band, MONAKR) with orchestral arrangements performed by a string quartet. The evening will combine literary hip hop, infectious pop compositions, virtuosic musicianship, and live storytelling.
Dessa is an internationally touring musician and writer who has built a career by bucking genre conventions and industry trends. As a recording artist, she’s appeared on the Billboard Top 200 charts, contributed to The Hamilton Mixtape, and co-written for a 100-voice choir. As an author, she’s been published by The New York Times and National Geographic Traveler and has served as a guest writer for the Welcome to Night Vale podcast. In 2018, Dutton Books (Penguin Random House) published her first hardcover book, a non-fiction essay collection titled, My Own Devices: True Stores from the Road on Music, Science, and Senseless Love.
