Often introduced as the songstress from another planet, Anessa LaRae is a singer-songwriter of eclectic and intergalactic rock 'n' soul. Fusing infectious pop melodies with soulful rock and funk driven music, Anessa makes a happy place for herself in the world of music. With the gift of words and the heart of a poet, Anessa delivers musical messages of love, growth, and revolution.
Being the child of two active duty Army officers for the majority of her life, Anessa hails from everywhere and nowhere at the same time. After studying Music Industry at Drexel University for the past four years, she now happily considers herself a Philly transplant. Anessa’s true and permanent home, however, is on the stage. Giving her first performance at the age of 5, music is very old friend of this 21-year old singer. Infusing her years of jazz, classical and theatrical vocal training with her innate soul, Ms. LaRae has created a sound as unique as she is.
Overdue and long awaited, Anessa just self-released her debut EP entitled Apocalyptic Genesis. Teaming up with the amazing Larry E. of Da Chu Productions and the dynamic Brian Dibiagio of The Violet Tone, this is truly a musical event not to be missed! With more and more people discovering Anessa LaRae everyday, the excitement is building up for one of music's rising stars.
I am very influenced by classic R&B artists such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Tina Turner, jazz artists such as Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, and current artists Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu, Adele and even Lady GaGa (out of place but her stage show is phenomenal).
