Bio

So you want to know a little bit about me?

At just 21 years-old, Dakota embodies what it means to be a singer-songwriter, performer, and artist. With her playful, yet introspective pop tunes, Dakota takes inspiration from today’s biggest stars, but with old school funk influences that set her apart. This L.A. based artist has devoted her whole life to music, beginning with playing in classic rock cover bands to spending countless nights writing songs in her bedroom to going to any and every concert in L.A. In that process of self-discovery, Dakota has found her authentic voice through bold lyrics, bubbly melodies, and funky basslines that drive the beat to keep you dancing all night long. Her most recent release, “Blame Me” is about the emotional chaos that goes on in your head when getting ghosted. Dakota wrote about a conversation she had with herself in hopes of finding closure and clarity while being ghosted. Dakota’s whole discography has a consistent theme of raw authenticity; whether that emotion be joy, anger, elation, or frustration, she is always fully transparent, which is very hard to find in the current pop world.
