From New Zealand to the USA, a music career far from over!

Vanessa McGowan on her music career



So Vanessa could play bass, but what did that mean? Delve further into your role, for Vanessa this meant she had to figure out what was the point of her playing bass? What did she want to do with this skill in her life?

Vanessa talks us through the journey to where she is now, the leaps of faith she took as well as the opportunities she is grateful for! 

From getting a scholarship to study with Tom Warrington to gaining mentors across the music sector, her musical journey has taken her all around the world, and along the way, she has met some incredibly special people! Including her band partner, who she says without him she wouldn’t be where she is now! 

A beautiful journey and one that is just getting started, we can’t wait to follow along with what is next in your career Vanessa!
