The Woman’s Club valued partner, Sue McLean & Associates, has announced the fourth performer in their Music & Storyteller Sessions series - Dessa.
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 RBG documentary soundtrack, and performed at clubs and festivals on five continents. She’s written for The New York Times and National Geographic Traveler, presented a TED talk with over 4 million views, and published a memoir My Own Devices that was recognized by NPR and Amazon as a best book of 2018. Dessa also hosts the science podcast Deeply Human—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. Find her online @dessadarling on Twitter and Facebook, @dessa on Instagram, and at dessawander.com.
