Dessa is truly a Renaissance woman. She's a spoken word poet, an emcee for local rap family Doomtree, and a Jerome Grant recipient who also moonlights as a technical writer by day. Her solo release "False Hopes", earned her a spot on the Star Tribune's "Top Ten Local Releases" in 2005. David Brusie of Rift Magazine aptly described Dessa's voice as "equal parts Ani Difranco and Mos Def". We were pleased to host Dessa on Making Music as she talked about her story as abundantly illustrated by a detailed PowerPoint presentation.
