Hailing from the flats of Columbus, Ohio, Often hunts for what can carve them out. First fitting themselves into an electronic chill pop duo called DIMES, they played small shows in Brooklyn dives until they escaped to-and ultimately transformed from-life in Atlanta, Georgia. Utilizing those years deepening their ancestry, the closeness of those who came before helped them settle back into the body they tried so desperately to leave behind. Within the comfort and haze of a thinning veil, small prayers and held rage emerged to form their debut album “Dirty Saint.” Released April 5th, 2021, “By Summer,” the first single from the project, was aptly deemed “otherworldly” in its premiere with Wussy Magazine. Now, with a cleared path to self, Often has let go of what held them back, making room for the gifts only peace can return.
Often has been discovered on several Spotify Editorial Playlists, was featured on the series finale of Showtime’s Golden Globe winning show “The Affair,” and has a genuine investment in making connection with her audience, hosting a Weekly Reground each Wednesday evening offering a safe space to center themselves and others. Often aims to provide the calm, euphoric experience of healing within her music, little spells to release our truest selves.
