The Last Artful, Dodgr has released a catchy and energetic new track titled “Hullabaloo.” With “Hullabaloo,” Dodgr reminds listeners to drown out the outside influences and exist as their authentic selves. Produced by Take A Daytrip (Sheck Wes, Juice Wrld, Lil Nas X), “Hullabaloo” is the next single from Dodgr’s forthcoming debut album.
On the release of the track Dodgr states, “I’ve had so many opportunities to quit pursuing my dreams. Felt like I was invisible to most & time wasn’t on my side, but the take away is to never give up on yourself despite the odds you face, despite the background noise from people who couldn’t do themselves better than you do YOU — anything you hear now is just hullabaloo.“
“Hullabaloo” is the first new music from Dodgr since the release of “Lightwork” and “Hot” last Summer, the latter of which was featured on HBO’s hit tv show, Euphoria. HIGHSNOBRIETY commended Dodgr’s “exceptional, elastic voice and a bewitching grasp of melody.” With co-signs from Anderson .Paak, Mark Ronson, Portugal. The Man, and more, Dodgr is setting up for a breakthrough year, leading up to a debut album this summer.
Born and raised in LA, The Last Artful, Dodgr (she/they) didn’t fully discover her artistic voice until attending Humboldt State University (CA). After graduating from Humboldt, Dodgr took yet another step further into the “fish out of water” mentality, moving to Portland in pursuit of music despite the city’s known reluctance to hip-hop. Noticing a local scene beginning to grow, Dodgr quickly developed a loyal following that she compares to the love of an “adoptive” family. Offering refreshing, genre-agnostic music, they became one of the city’s premiere talents, and eventually met fellow Portland artist Aminé, who invited Dodgr to accompany him as a background vocalist during his first late night television performance in 2016. Since then, Dodgr has grown their audience exponentially, even boasting collaborations with Mark Ronson, Anderson .Paak and Portugal. The Man, among others. Now signed to Interscope Records and at work on her debut album, she dares to be different in the age of immediacy — a prideful testament to her resolute character, and even more so, a reflection of her artistic integrity.
