“Dossey is an outlier in the vast music scene that has found roots in Austin, Texas. While most up-and-coming musicians from the area base their sounds in rock, country, indie, or a combination of similar genres, Dossey corners the market with her electronic pop sound.” - Babetalk.TV
DOSSEY is the electro-pop alter-ego of the enigmatic Sarah Dossey, who derives her sound from a truly eclectic appreciation of music and art. The banjo playing member of Austin-based folk/bluegrass trio Indian & the Jones, DOSSEY’s sound as a solo artist is very much influenced by traditional American folk, all through the funnel of 1980s synth pop and new wave. A songwriter at heart, her music is always built on a foundation of a catchy, memorable hook, paired with a danceable beat.
2018 was a busy year for DOSSEY, as her two single releases received premiers (in addition to some glowing reviews) with Earmilk (Heartbeats) and Ladygunn (Plastic Diamonds). In addition, her sparkling 80s throwback video for Heartbeats received a nomination within the “Instant Classic” category at the Austin Music Video Festival.
