Vanessa Verduga is a NYC-LA Singer Songwriter
To help people discover their calling is one of the most extraordinary gifts you can give, and Vanessa Verduga is the kind of artist who has dedicated her talent to doing just that. She represents what hasn’t been represented, bringing a much needed feminine gravitas to the often male-dominated urban Latino genre. It would seem almost serendipitous for a woman whose last name means ‘executioner’, to be the one cutting through.
Having originally been all about musical theatre and Broadway show tunes, it was Vanessa’s mother who got her hooked on urban Latino. Her own talent as a songwriter came to her as a surprise outpouring of lyrics in the form of spoken poetry and rap, which of course shouldn’t have astonished any Bronx girl who grew up with hip-hop in her heart. These days she’s all about finding a groove and making you dance, with a sound that’s a fusion of reggaeton, Latin, and bachatas – think somewhere between Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, J Balvin, Nicky Jam, and Gente de Zona.
She is creating a space with her sound and sending a message with her lyrics that helps awaken our inner warriors. Vanessa’s message is one of empowerment, of women in control of their own lives and their own bodies. She is committed to creating bold statements, and is standing for the ladies as a powerful and passionate individual, changing our reality by setting us free from stereotypes.
Her debut single Owner Of My Heart which released in August, and is the first single from her forthcoming bilingual album Soy Mujer (I Am Woman). With a production team including the likes of Grammy and Billboard award-winning producers Kenny O’Brien and DJ Napoles, we can expect big things from this captivating lady very soon.
