Dessa
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. http://smarturl.it/dessachime
Love Moor
Love Moor is a powerful NeoSoul artist who builds beautifully crafted, revealing songs that revolve around themes of sexuality, nostalgia, abandonment, and self love. Her music is infused with R&B and Hip Hop overtones and often references New Jazz and her island roots. Her freshman album Blu Polka Dots built her a strong following and her recently released sophomore project Simp Girl followed up, building on her acclaim in her hometown of Birmingham, AL and beyond, garnering radio play and media coverage nationally and internationally.



Love Moor has performed in concert in support of such acts as R.LUM.R., Amasa Hines and Phangs and has been featured at Secret Stages Festival, Art On The Rocks and multiple LOBOTOMIX showcases. In 2018 she will be featured at SLOSSfest and is performing 4 times at SxSW at the Secret Stages Official Showcase, The Scratched Vinyl 6th Annual Showcase, the Onward Indian Showcase and at Yeast By Sweet Beast minifest which kicks off Sx. Love has also just finished filming a series of videos for Spectrasonic Sound Sessions and is their featured artist for the month of February 2018, as well as the featured artist at Birmingham Mountain Radio during the same period. There’s lots more to come…
