So you want to know a little bit about me?

After revealing her powerhouse vocals on American Idol, Dakota strived to break more barriers in the music industry. With her recent release of “New Year New Me”, she is doing just that. Her alternative, playful pop tunes are inspired by today’s biggest stars, but with classic rock influences that set her apart. Her diverse musical range comes from her established tenure as a performer. Since the tender age of five, Dakota has always been passionate about music. Through her ambition and determination, she picked up different instruments including drums, bass, guitar, keys, ukulele, timables, and was able to achieve a four octave vocal range. Growing up in Los Angeles, California has definitely set her apart from the rest as Dakota has been performing all around this music-based city since age 9. Her wide-range of expertise has placed her on national stages and late night appearances from Conan O’Brien, Russell Brand, and The NAMM Show to Lollapalooza, Milwaukee’s Summerfest and Gathering of the Vibes. Her single “New Year New Me” is about ridding yourself of toxic people in your life and starting fresh with a clear mind and being confident in who you are. Each single continues to power those around her and proves the staying power of this rapidly rising pop vocalist
