Dessa is a Twin Cities based rapper, singer and essayist. She has a booming solo career, and is a member of the powerhouse hip-hop group Doomtree (made up of P.O.S, Cecil Otter, Sims, Mike Mictlan, Paper Tiger, Lazerbeak and Dessa). Throughout her career, Dessa's music has raised important questions about the world, as well as dissecting her own personal thoughts and experiences. She has been extremely influential in the Minnesota music scene by gaining national recognition (such as her respective spots on the Billboard Top 200 list as a solo artist and as a Doomtree member) but also staying true to her Midwestern roots. Enter the musical world of Dessa and expect to be entranced by her intoxicating sound and commanding presence.

Join her on July 16 as she headlines the second week of the free Down by the Riverside concert series with special guest Early Eyes.
