Vanessa has been dazzling audiences since age five. Her love of lyrics and passion for communicating propelled her sing anywhere she could as a child: talent shows, school choirs, musicals, you name it. By middle school she was directing, writing for, and performing with a singing telegram troop. In her college years, Vanessa sang full-time at California’s Great America as Pebbles Flinstone, complete with bone-in-hair costume! Since joining the Bay Area live music scene 15 years ago, Vanessa has been part of several rock bands and collaborated with acoustic musicians on stage as well as in the studio.
A shameless pop-princess at heart, Vanessa credits her vocal style and prowess to the powerhouse “greats”: Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson, and Christina Aguilera to name a few.
When she’s not on the mic reminding you to tip your bartenders, Vanessa can be found hiking and running dirt trails, overbooking her calendar, and sipping pinot noir. Her secret goal is to sing a duet with Pink while they Crossfit.
