Vanessa’s music & live show has been compared to a Female Nirvana that’s slightly punk & energetic at times similar to The Ramones but then expands & ranges to the likes of Chrissie Hynde meets Patti Smith & Neil Young. Vanessa is also widely known for wearing many hats in the music business & having worked for heavy hitters such as producer Dr. Luke (Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Kesha) & at places such a the Foo FightersStudio 606 where she was a in-house assistant engineer.
Backing Vanessa & making the Vanessa Silberman Band for ‘OK’ is Raleigh NC drummer Reed Mullin of the band Corrosion of Conformity (known for their early days in the hardcore/punk scene & hit record ‘Deliverance’) & San Francisco musician/producer, studio owner (Lucky Recording Company) & club owner (Hemlock Tavern) Mikel Ross who met Vanessa at Studio 606 working on Reed Mullins other project Teenage Time Killers.
About Carissa Johnson:
Hailing from Boston MA, rock artist Carissa Johnson has proven to leave her mark and she is just getting started. She began playing bass in Boston bands for a few years before stepping out to pursue her own music. With a debut full-length album winning “Album of the Year” by the Limelight Music Awards and a nomination for “Best Punk Act” by the Worcester Music Awards in 2016, Johnson continues to push ahead, writing and producing enthusiastically honest songs. With influences evident in her songs, her sound pays tribute to seventies punk and new wave, yet remains authentically her own. It’s an aesthetic that’s proven appealing to fans of all ages. Carissa Johnson is known for her straight-forward lyrics and her driving, four on the floor melodies, her “heartening anthemic rock” stands out among her contemporaries. In April of 2017 Johnson won Boston’s legendary annual Rock and Roll Rumble, and in December took home the ‘New Act of the Year’ award at Boston’s 30th Annual Music Awards at the House of Blues. Determined to share her music with the world, she continues to book her own tours and play shows throughout the country – with or without a band.
