If you like Missy Elliott, listen to The Last Artful, Dodgr
Born in L.A. but based in Portland, The Last Artful, Dodgr has a voice like none other. We'd call it a falsetto if it didn't sound like Dodgr's natural register—her raspy, bright notes flip between melody and rap on a dime, and the eclectic, energetic nature of her music reminds us of a young Missy Elliott.
Dodgr's collaborative album with Neill Von Tally, Bone Music, dropped earlier this month. She's been with the Fresh Selects team for over a year now, and the hard work is paying off. Give "Jazz Crimes" a listen below, but the whole album is worth a spin.
