"I had the pleasure of meeting & playing some music with Dacota at Shangri-La Music Festival and was thoroughly impressed. His songs are lyrically driven, songs about self empowerment, growth, and self activation. Underneath his poetic couplets is an phenomenal grip on his guitar, melodies and chords built in between confident riffs and challenging finger work. And all this shines no brighter than his voice. A textural gift of rasp and soul. A voice that cuts through you while putting you at ease. I was truly in awe while watching his artistry unfold, and am only surprised with the idea that more people have not heard his work. Because more people should. A true talent." -Karl Vincet of Satsang
Dacota’s raw, powerful, honest voice drew me in from the moment I heard it. I followed the heralding sound to find him bearing his soul around a fire to a group of jaw dropped witnesses hanging on every note. It was then that I knew I was in the presence of something special. I’ve been a huge fan of this young, unique, passionate, rising soul brother ever since, and if you’re into real music from a huge heart, you’ll be too. -Reed Grimm
