DOSSEY is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Austin, Texas.
Her energetic brand of alt pop was launched into the public consciousness with the feature of her 80s synth pop earworm, Heartbeats, by none other than NPR’s All Songs Considered, who touted her as one of 100 artists to see at SXSW in 2019. Soon after, her collaboration with Canadian EDM producer Disero, Better Run, debuted on Spotify’s official “All New Indie,” “Indie Radar,” and “New Music '' playlists.
DOSSEY has honed her undeniable sound on-stage and in-studio, marrying her adoration for funky 70s Nile Rodgers guitar licks, soaring disco melodies, modern synth pop rhythms and unusual samples. This effort has created an infectiously fuschia and sequin-soaked, hook-filled world for her followers, who are hungry for a deeper, edgier and romantic archetype of pop.
