Vanessa Maria

Vanessa Maria is an artist who presents a mutable hybrid of trap-tinged alternative r&b with ethereal synth-soaked dream pop. Her songwriting expresses raw emotion and honesty and aims to inspire people to be self-confident, sassy and creative. Raised on the Holmewood council estate in Bradford, West Yorkshire, she was influenced to start making music by the celestial sounds of M83, The 1975, SZA and The Weeknd. On stage Nessa recalls tales of coming of age, sneaking out to parties, first love and the nostalgia of youth. Then she describes her journey of moving to Manchester, dealing with the darkness of social anxiety and sharing shameless confessions of a 20-something’s hotel room rendezvous and crawling home at 5am.
