Named as one of Billboard’s 21 Under 21 and 25 Artists to Watch in 2022 by Ones to Watch, 21-year-old, LA-based Nessa Barrett is taking the world by storm. While her music career took off in 2019, Nessa was born with music running through her veins with strong influences from her musical family. Posting covers and creations to TikTok, Nessa quickly gained popularity on the app for her candidness and authenticity. Now with more than 19 million TikTok followers and 1.3 billion streams, Nessa has a legion of loyal fans ready to embark on the journey to stardom alongside her.

Following a series of releases including singles ‘Pain’ and ‘La Di Die’ and 2021 EP pretty poison, Nessa released her debut album, young forever in 2022 to critical acclaim and support from fans, with Ones To Watch claiming “she firmly turns the spotlight on herself a bit brighter, declaring that if we are going to look at her, we might as well see everything” and The New York Times labelling the project, “supremely self-conscious”.

Known best for her heartfelt and open approach to music, often engaging personally with her fans, Nessa is taking her refreshing outlook on life to the stage, performing her first festival set at Las Vegas’ When We Were Young followed by her UK debut at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival and a sold out European headline tour.

​Alongside her music, Nessa recently featured in a campaign for Kim Kardashian’s iconic clothing brand SKIMS, alongside some of Gen Z’s leading ladies; Ice Spice, Pinkpantheress and RAYE.

Due to release her next single this October, the track will follow a huge year of new music from Nessa, with EP, hell is a teenage girl featuring lead single, ‘american jesus’, proving itself as an incredible follow-up record to her debut release. On a trajectory to be pop’s next biggest star, fans will be eagerly awaiting her first visit to Australia and New Zealand.

Fast-rising Australian artist Oliver Cronin will join Nessa on her December dates. Cronin makes dark pop music that’s as authentic as it is exciting, with songs that are modern, resonant, and rich in detail. After a breakthrough 2022 that included releasing his debut EP Beautiful Nightmare, Cronin’s star has continued to rise; his EP accrued more than 6 million global streams and he has over 400K TikTok followers. Released on Friday, Cronin’s new single ‘I Need You’ featuring Lil XXEL is raw and heartfelt, a song to cry and dance to, looking back at memories of relationships past. ​
