Singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations—she’s appeared on the Billboard charts, recorded with the GRAMMY-winning Minnesota Orchestra, contributed to The Hamilton Mixtape and the RBGdocumentary soundtrack, and performed at clubs and festivals on five continents. She’s written for The New York Times [nytimes.com] and National Geographic Traveler [nationalgeographic.com], presented a TED talk [ted.com] with more than 2 million views, and published a memoirMy Own Devices [penguinrandomhouse.com] that was recognized by NPR and Amazon as a best book of 2018. Dessa also hosts the science podcast Deeply Human [smarturl.it]—a co-production of the BBC, American Public Media, and iHeartRadio—that features surprisingly intimate interviews with leading researchers on human behavior. The LA Times wrote that Dessa “sounds like no one else;” NPR’s All Songs Considered called her “a national treasure.” On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor.
