Vanessa Weisz (SK) - SHARPE skip to Main Content


Vanessa Weisz is a multi-genre singer/songwriter/artist from Slovakia, musically fusing together dreamy pop melodies with a dash of electronics, blues and soft-rock. She has been into art since early childhood, writing some of her first lyrics at about 12 but didn’t consider pursuing music until the pandemic hit the globe.

In 2021, she put out her first collection of songs (Wisdom Tooth (Mixtape), which earned her both, nominations in the Radio_Head Awards in categories “Album of the Year”, “Debut of the Year” and “Song of the Year” from Slovak national radio and international recognition, especially with her chill melancholic song “California dream”, which quickly hit more than 1 million streams on Spotify alone without any preplanned marketing strategies. In 2022 she put out an EP “u were a fucked up fantasy”, from which the song “fuck yeah no please” made its placement in the original soundtrack for the movie “I Don’t Like You Anymore” by Zdeněk Jiráský. 

Her debut album “We Don’t Talk About Dead People”, dedicated to her father that she lost unexpectedly in the autumn of 2022, is set to come out sometime in 2024/25 and she hopes to be able to open up a conversation about honouring our grief and lost loved ones by speaking about them, instead of shying away from the topic of death and profound loss, if we choose to do so.
