Dakota came to London to search for music, to search for a means to express herself.
First spotted by Grammy award winning producer Frazer T. Smith in 2015, her passionate approach bowled over someone more used to collaborating with Adele and Stormzy.
Signed up to his 70Hz label, Dakota broke out with a starring role on Jonas Blue's smash hit 'Fast Car'.
Working on her own material, Dakota is set to have a stellar 2018, planning a flurry of new releases and live activity.
New single 'Hey Mamma' leads the way, a sterling piece of precocious pop, laden with electronic energy and shot through with immaculate colour.
A bold return, it places Dakota's emphatic vocal right at the centre, a show-piece for a pop star whose moment is fast arriving.
