Vanessa Ralls, is a midwestern jazz singer hailing from St. Louis, Missouri.
Vanessa sings with several big bands and has been singing the genre since she was a high school freshman. Vanessa developed a love for music and performance as a child and was heavily influenced by the jazz standards that her grandparents loved, and still listen to today.
