Chicago Rock and Soul singer breaks through the walls of stereotypes and societal constraints on new Single.

Ness Heads is the name of the genre-blending project of Vanessa Ortiz whose mix of Electronic, Pop and Hip Hop has been catching attention in Chicago and beyond.

Ness grew up on the West Side and attributes the noise, the backyard parties and the overall chaos of the area to shaping her into an artist she is today. Her latest Single “Paper Town” explores a softer, dreamy side of the rising MC, and features gliding vocal melodies over acoustic guitar and subdued beats. Jill Hopkins spoke with Ness about her Chicago upbringing and eclectic sound.

Chicago musician and performance artist excavates past traumas, processes past relationship and reflects on lifestyle pre-sobriety.

Matt Muse shares a new track in which he reps Chicago’s South Side.

The EP finds the “Latin Soul” singer and songwriter in search of a sanctuary as he addresses pain and trauma of the past and re-examines his beliefs.
