Hadassah is a neo-soul singer and songwriter from Long Island, New York. Her music delivers an experiential story while fusing jazz, soul, and R&B on a minimalist backdrop.
Hadassah started singing from a young age, keeping a diary of songs she would write. After completing a Bachelor’s degree, she chose to return to her passions and commit to music entirely, releasing two EPs, Lexicon of Love, and Lead Balloon. Following her mother’s death, she delved deeper into her art and released her latest EP, Oakmere Drive, earlier this year. The EP is laced with nostalgic undertones, combining dark stories with beautiful musical aesthetics and imagery. True to her artistry, Oakmere Drive is a play with duality, of light and dark, balancing heavy themes with minimalist vibes paralleled with a muted melancholic rhythm.
For Hadassah, music is a journey, both meditative and self-empowering, with every song creating a visual story. She will be releasing music videos from her latest EP this summer.
“I think it as important as a sunrise and a sunset each day that we listen to our hearts before we listen to what others believe is for us. So here I am, Hadassah, a 22-year old wanderer, who is not lost. This is where I come to cleanse, to heal myself and head back out for voyage. Too long I spent worried about what others thought. I learned that I can be my worst enemy when I allow my mind to be vulnerable to doubts, cants, and fears of my gifts. This music for me is my purge.” Hadassah
