A true Austin original, DOSSEY got her start playing her unique brand of electronic pop for the club crowd at Swan Dive, a local club known for cultivating local indie pop, electronic and dance artists. It was from that stage that DOSSEY truly honed her sound and stage presence - partnering soaring pop melodies with hard-hitting analog and digital synths over a tasty bed of vintage 808 beats.
DOSSEY has been featured as a New & Noteable artist on Noisetrade, an artist of the month on Altarwork, and has performed with Gungor, Beautiful Eulogy, Levi the Poet. She was also nominated for Deli Magazine's Best of Austin poll in February of 2017.
DOSSEY's sophomore effort, an EP called "Electric," releases on April 10, 2017.
Slated to release in April of 2017, Dossey's first EP project, Electric is a true experiment in collaboration, and is the first of a two-part series of EPs releasing in 2017.
The songs on Electric introduce Dossey listeners to a different side of her, as catchy pop melodies soar over dynamic arpeggiations and straight-forward dance beats in "Electric" and "Released", and vintage synth pads create a luxe atmosphere and presence in Dossey's cover of a beloved Peter Gabriel ballad on "In Your Eyes".
Recorded over a very short span of time (roughly one month!), in different studios around Austin, each song is a collaboration with a different producer ("Electric" - Taylor Webb, "Released" - Jake Wigal, and "In Your Eyes" - Russell Parks). All the vocals on the project were recorded at Rev1211's studio at Lifespace, a sanctuary of sorts for Austin artists. The project as a whole was later mixed by Taylor Webb, and mastered by Grammy-winning Bob Boyd at Ambient Digital in Houston, TX.
Dossey's freshman release, "Diamond," blends Dossey's intricate and catchy melodies with the creative genius of producers Kevin McCollough and Jacob Hildebrand and renowned mastering engineer, Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound (Chairlift, Rihanna, Santigold, Yeasayer, and many more).
However, the strength of this first electronic effort is not simply in its ambient electronic sensibilities or even Dossey's sweeping vocal melodies - lyrically, Diamond is relentless and declarative.
