Dessa Announces November Tour

Doomtree’s Dessa announces a November headlining tour in support of her new album Parts of Speech. As Doomtree collective’s only female emcee, Dessa has established herself as a highly literate and imaginative lyricist, earning praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, MTV, and many more with her previous LP. Now, on Parts of Speech, which debuted at #74 on the Billboard Top 200, the Twin Cities native strikes a compelling balance between the electronic and organic, combining innovative hip-hop beats with multi-layered instrumentation and laying the groundwork for her uniquely expressive rap-sing and whip-smart songwriting. As for Dessa’s live shows, New York’s Village Voice says “Dessa’s fluid, dynamic presence beautifully blends rap and poetry, and does the difficult job of humanizing the explosive beats.” Tickets go on sale this weekend.
