So you want to know a little bit about me?

As 22-year-old Dakota undergoes all the love and heartbreak life has to offer, she paints her experiences onto the canvas that is her music. Behind her upbeat and playful pop/funk tunes, authenticity and vulnerability is infused into her masterful lyrics and brought to life by her powerhouse vocals. With inspiration from Jessie J and Bruno Mars, Dakota inputs her own creative twists on nostalgic and shiny pop. 

Driven by ambition and perfection, Dakota has dedicated herself to music since the age of 5, challenging herself to learn numerous new instruments and write her own music. Her vocal agility has grown tremendously from her studies with vocal coach Stevie Mackey (Kelly Rowland, Selena Gomez). This Los Angeles-native performer possesses undeniable talent and charisma, landing herself on the iconic stages of Lollapalooza and Milwaukee’s Summerfest, as well as late night appearances on Conan O’Brien and Russell Brand.
