DAGMARA is the project of Phoebe Heretz, a songwriter and performer based in New Paltz, NY. Phoebe is a recent graduate of the Studio Composition program from the music conservatory at SUNY Purchase.

Phoebe grew up in the suburbs of Boston on a heavy dose of David Bowie and the Beatles. Later on, at Purchase, she latched onto 60's country and folk, a couple favorites being Roy Orbison and Joni Mitchell. This melting pot of influences come out in her writing, though the arrangements of the songs lean towards alt-folk.

DAGMARA released their debut EP, The Virgin High, in January 2017. The follow-up full-band album, still in the works, was recorded with Travis De Jeong of Salvation Recording Co. in October 2017.
