Désirée Dorothy already sounds like the great icons of her music: Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, and Alicia Keys all filter through when the singer uses her distinctive voice. This year, the Berlin-born singer recorded her debut EP “When Mercury Fades”. Before that, she appeared as a dubbing artist, among other things for Netflix productions like “Dark”, but she has also worked on songs with Chefket and Robot Koch. She has bigger ambitions though: her targets are an international career, and the Grammys. Most singers of her caliber setting such goals might be mocked. But as May The Muse, Dorothy charms us with a vocal presence and musical emotionality that really belongs nowhere other than at the very top.
