Dakota: Berklee Two Track I Origins

Sponsored Post advertising Canada Persia
Dakota performs her original "All Dressed Up" and a medley of Randy Newman, Aerosmith, and The Main Squeeze to celebrate the theme Origins.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Dakota’s alternative pop tunes draw inspiration from today’s top hits, but with a classic rock flare that sets her apart from the rest. Her diverse musical range comes from her established tenure as a performer. Dakota’s funky bass lines, playful lyrics, and hooky melodies set a fiery ambience that’ll keep the party going.

Two Track is a music video series designed for Berklee’s YouTube and social media channels that features artists in an intimate setting with only one microphone and continuous camera takes. Each recording session will revolve around a single theme (i.e., connection, love, dreams) that can be expressed by the artist either through their track selection or through a short storytelling segment that will be recorded as part of the performance. The videos in this series will premiere at specific dates and times, but if you miss the premiere, each video will be public on the channel in continuity.
