Desi Wolff is a wandering singer-songwriter. Her sound bridges the genres of indie pop, electronic and hip hop as her lyrics convey ideals of empathy, love, happiness and understanding. Her debut single "Om" and second single "Neon Soul" were released in 2019 along with the “Om” Remix. On August 10th 2020 Wolff released the “Neon Soul” Remix featuring American rapper-singer Sammy Adams.
When Desi was six years old, her grandparents took her to a Barbara Mandrell concert at the Carolina Opry. Admittedly, she doesn’t remember much of the music, but she will never forget how the night felt. It all seemed like magic, as she first witnessed the powers that music has on us. At seven, Desi received her first karaoke machine and some recording tapes. A fledgling recording artist in the making, she was handing them out to classmates, friends, family, teachers and also sent them to the likes of Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and NSYNC (p.s. still waiting to hear back, guys).
After growing up in Indiana, Desi has since lived all over the US learning and growing, developing her songwriting and unique voice. Her musical inspirations come from the likes of Sylvan Esso and Maggie Rogers as she combines the influences of such artists to create a whole new sound. Other similar artists include Ingrid Michaelson, Banks, and AlunaGeorge.
As a “Spiritual Gangster,” Desi’s mission with the music she makes and anything she writes is to raise her audiences’ vibration. “I want to create “feel good” tunes that anyone could play on a summer day,” she says, adding that she writes about subjects that aren’t necessarily “cool” or “trendy” with the aim of making these topics appealing and digestible. “I make songs about spirituality (spirituality as something bigger than all of us and a divine order, not religion), love, vision, resilience, unity, and hope.”
With a musical style that is transcendental yet relatable — socially-woke lyrics meet lil funky, electronic, indie sounds — some have described Wolff’s sound as “self-actualization with a baller beat.” Even though 2020 is pitching lemons at all of us, Desi is determined to continue sharing her craft with the world because she knows that music is a powerful force that helps us get through all of the bullshit.
