Nessa’s voyage from the sun-drenched boulevards of LA to global prominence is a compelling tale of evolution. Nessa P’s musical journey began in childhood when her passion for music provided sanctuary amidst a turbulent upbringing. Born Vanessa Rebecca De La Rosa in 1986 and raised in San Jose, California, Nessa was named after Vanessa Williams by her mother, who saw the musician as an inspiration. Despite lacking resources, Nessa taught herself piano and guitar, defying her father’s discouragement of her musical pursuits. At 16, desperate for an electric guitar, she raised money busking at school, later starting her first band out of the family garage.

After relocating to Bakersfield, financial realities led Nessa to drop out temporarily to support her father’s struggling plumbing business. Nevertheless, she soon formed a punk band, finding escape in lyrics even while soldering pipes on job sites. Seeking stability, Nessa moved between family members and cities before earning music scholarships to Bethany University. There, she soaked up knowledge, witnessing album recordings while questioning if her academic path was the right one.

Graduating college proved only the start of Nessa’s winding journey. Stints living with her grandmother and managing a drive-thru followed as she struggled to reconcile societal pressures with her desire for creative fulfillment. In the 2000s, Nessa returned to focus on collaboration, but her brother’s bandmates proved more interested in partying than music-making.

In 2018, amidst divorce and discouraging voices, Nessa experienced a watershed moment, realizing life was too short to abandon long-held dreams. Despite risks, she invested savings into a home studio, mentorship, and further developing her production skills. Nessa poured energy into her solo project, non-programma, embracing unconventionality in both her music and outlook. She co-wrote the questioning track “Shapes & Colors” with emerging talent Hoodrich Baco and found inspiration in artists like Alanis Morissette.

Today, Nessa deftly juggles various musical roles. As a writer for V13 Media, she spotlights the Bay Area’s underrecognized talent. As an audio production teacher, she passes on knowledge to students from similar working-class backgrounds. In her professional studio, she collaborates with rising artists and produces her own genre-bending tracks. Most importantly, through her multifaceted involvement in the industry, Nessa lives authentically while uplifting her community.

Nessa demonstrates versatility and vulnerability in her music. There’s a defiant spirit reminiscent of her youth, a sense that societal boundaries need not dictate possibilities. Whether achieving visibility at renowned festivals or continuing to funnel her experiences into cathartic songs, Nessa creates on her own uncompromising terms. She once eschewed the notion that women must depend on others, financially or otherwise. Now, proudly self-sufficient, Nessa invites everyone to live equally boldly.
