Alana Chenevert (aka The Last Artful, Dodgr) initially planned to be an anthropologist, perhaps unearthing fossils instead of rhymes. Instead she found her voice in singing and rapping about the realities of life as millennial, and left Los Angeles for Portland. Newly signed to startup local label Eyrst (a project of former Trail Blazer Martell Webster), The Last Artful, Dodgr has just released her debut record, Bone Music, and joined us in the studio with producer Neill Von Tally to perform a trio of spare, artful songs and talk with State of Wonder producer Aaron Scott.
Watch the performances above, and listen/download the interview and songs below.
