Vanessa Phillips

Vanessa Phillips was born and raised in the beautiful town of Springbok, one of the jewels in the Namaqualand area. Showing great talent from a young age, she went on to study music at the University of Stellenbosch where she obtained her BMus in piano performance and psychology. Furthermore, excelling in both practical and academic fields, she subsequently completed her Performance Diploma (Royal Schools of Music) and is currently enrolled for a Postgraduate Diploma in piano performance majoring in chamber music (University of Cape Town) as well as a Master of Science (psychology) at the Liverpool John Moores University, UK.


Vanessa made her solo debut at the tender age of 19 when she performed with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. In recent years she has opened for Selaelo Selota, performed with Jeremy Olivier (The Voice), and most recently, featured as a piano hand-double in the Netflix series, Resident Evil 2022, (Episode 6, “Someone’s Little Girl”).


Vanessa is a highly skilled and well-rounded musician that can effortlessly move from technical classical music to light jazz & pop songs - adapting to the desired atmosphere and event vision. Not many people know this about her, but Vanessa is also a soulful songstress with a velvety voice, similar in style and execution to music icon, Norah Jones.
