DASHA Shows Off Her Boy-Free Independence in
Lively “None Of My Business” Video
After the release of polished-pop hit “None Of My Business,” DASHA compliments the single with a just as effervescent video. The newly released video breathes new life into the track, depicting DASHA walking in on her boyfriend with another girl. Although initially sulking in her sadness, she instead decides to go off and have a fun day with her besties. Complete with a golf cart joy ride, the snapping of a few thirst traps, and even a water gun fight – DASHA makes it clear that she’s better off without him. With the devil on her tongue but an angel in her voice, DASHA delivers a raw and striking send-off single and visual, solidifying her spot as a rising pop sensation.
The “None of My Business” visual parallels the song’s irreverent nature, – both complementing each other and establishing “None Of My Business” as an all-powerful anti-cheating anthem that radiates hot girl summer energy. The single itself exudes breeziness and sparkles with its 90’s R&B influenced melody. Behind this facade, however, are intensely honest and emotion-filled lyrics that cut like a knife, bringing an undeniable sense of authenticity to her work. Co-written by Chelsea Balan, who has penned some of pop’s brightest including AJ Mitchell, Joseph Tilly, Kaskade, and Meg Smith, and produced by Elijah Hill who has worked among acts Crobin, Young L, Maty Noyes, Lizzy Land and crafted official remixes for Ava Max – the three serve as the perfect formula for pop perfection.
After being selected by SONY in a song and artist competition held in Nashville, the California native got the chance of a lifetime. Signing with SONY Germany/ FAMOUZ Records for a single deal, DASHA released the catchy and confident track “Don’t Mean A Thing.” Her momentum continued as she brought her girl-power-punch to Live Oak Music Festival and opened for a date on LISSIE’s US tour. All of this leading to DASHA signing with Quadio Records, an independent label based in New York City that champions the next generation of recording artists.
On the track DASHA explains, “None Of My Business was written around the feeling you get when the person you want doesn’t want you back. The storyline in the record is exaggerated into walking in on the guy you’re with and another girl cheating, but the sentiment is the same. There are so many songs about crying over someone who doesn’t want you back but I’m not about to spend that much energy playing the victim and being hurt over some dude. ‘None Of My Business’ is all about showing that person the bad bitch they lost and almost rubbing it in their face a little!

“I’ve always been surrounded by women that are just so unafraid to get what they want. I guess I picked that up.”
It’s this kind of empowerment that suffuses every song on California-born artist and songwriter DASHA’s debut EP. Released by Quadio Records, it features a collection of tracks that confidently mix heartfelt songwriting with catchy pop hooks and a touch of west coast R&B. The product is a versatile sound that blends her California roots with her adopted home of Nashville, where she spent the last few years.
Following in the footsteps of her brother Bardo, (Trevor Daniel, Beauty School Dropout) Dasha started attending songwriting camps, along with taking voice lessons. Dasha opted to build her career from home, working with her brother, other producers, and a variety of musical collaborators, including Pink Slip and Inverness, and regularly releasing songs that eventually began notching up to 30,000 streams each.
After a summer in Nashville, in 2018 Dasha decided to attend Belmont University for its noted music program. There, she met the popular singer/songwriter zyyn, and they released “Heart on Hold,” a pulsing romantic duet with a searing electronic edge. Performances at Nashville and LA venues soon followed, as did an opening act for the pop duo Danny and Alex. Most recently, her single, “Don’t Mean a Thing,” was released through Sony Germany and placed on Spotify’s New Music Friday Nashville playlist.
With her new album on the verge of release, Dasha is characteristically ebullient about the future and the way her voice can both inspire and entertain. “I think about the women who came before me — my grandma was the only woman in her medical school class, and she was pregnant at the time — I think about my mom and my sister, who are so smart and confident, and keep going and pushing even harder than before,” she says. “I get an idea and think, ‘Oh my God, I have to write this song.’ I’m obsessed.”
