From Whoa Dakota
Since the release of her EP, “I’m a Liar” in 2015, Whoa Dakota (Jessica Ott) has truly come into her own. Building on the blues-based roots of her former band of the same name, Jess has grown her musical interests and influences, resulting in an amalgam of digital pop and R&B. Employing the help of local Nashville producers Gavin Shea and Chris Gill of HandMade Productions, Whoa Dakota has created a sound that truly stands out amongst her Nashville peers. Whoa Dakota's latest single, "Clarity," has combined Ott's head-turning vocal with a pleasing blend of heartfelt lyrics and futuristic soundscapes. "Clarity” was recently picked up by Nashville’s “Lightning 100” and is spun regularly as she continues to generate a solid buzz with her newly-founded solo efforts. As her momentum continues to grow heading into 2017, Whoa Dakota remains at the forefront of Music City’s up and comers.
