Featured "Today at Apple" artist/speaker and named by Audiofemme.com as one of the "hardest working bands of 2017 & 2018" Vanessa Silberman is a national touring singer, guitarist and songwriter from Los Angeles, CA. She is also a record producer, engineer, an independent A&R and runs an artist development Label called A Diamond Heart Production.
Widely known for having a very strong DIY ethic and wearing many different hats in the music business —Vanessa has worked for heavy hitter's in the music business such as Producer / Songwriter Dr.Luke as well as for many companies and places ranging from the Foo Fighter's Studio 606 to Epitaph Records.
Vanessa's live shows and music has been compared to the raw bare bones rock 'n roll of Nirvana & The Ramones along with the appeal of Liz Phair & Chrissie Hynde, authenticity of classic artists such as Patti Smith, Neil Young & the pop sensibilities of commercial radio artists such as Green Day.

Vanessa has done over 16 tours between 2015-2019 and played over 600 shows across the U.S. as well as in the UK & Europe supporting a self-titled EP and various singles (released through her label) along with a cassette released by Weiner (Burger Records).
