FunkyNessa is my name in all things media. Real name is Vanessa from Birmingham. My mum is my musical influence, which is where I think I got my creative personality from. Writing reviews was something I was interested in doing. In 2011 I got in contact with Matt Benn who is the CEO of the website UK Funky which is now Soundplate, who are the no 1 leading website for house, funky and electro sounds. I wrote my first article on “Indigo Child” album by Donaeo. My articles grew on to house and funky producers, Dj’s. Earlier last year I ventured with Niji magazine supporting upcoming artists and anything to do with Arts/Fashion. I was interviewing as well as reviewing mix tapes/albums… I am also apart of youth organisation Bigga Fish based in London they put on events for young people. They have recently branched out the team to Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester and Newcastle.
