WHERE NEW YORK CITY PLAYS GUITAR
Date:January 05, 2017

Vanessa Malanga

Vanessa is a lifelong lover of music. Her greatest musical influence is her father, who raised her on the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Star Wars soundtrack. Her first favorite artist was Michael Jackson, closely followed by the Spice Girls. Vanessa graduated from Catawba College with a BFA in musical theatre and recently completed one year at the New York Film Academy Musical Theatre Conservatory. She sang first soprano with the Catawba Singers, including a performance at Carnegie Hall in 2009. Vanessa's warm smile and cheery personality stem from her days in the Girl Scouts, where she received the Gold Award and is a lifetime member! These days, Vanessa rocks out to an arsenal of classic rock, 90s pop-punk and today's indie. She is majorly excited about being an absolute beginner on guitar.
