Vanessa Leinani is an American born actress, singer/songwriter (and sometimes model) from Texas
who is a quarter Polish, quarter Russian, and half Hawaiian. A tour de force, Vanessa fully embraced many facets of performing-related activities since she was a child, excelling in acting, singing, and songwriting.

Growing up performing in live theater at a very early age, Vanessa sang and danced in her father's
music group where she was exposed to the music of great artists from a wide variety of genres.
Musical studies also began at an early age thanks to Vanessa's west-coast-rocker-old-Hollywood-actor
father who would sneak in many lessons under the guise of playing games. Continuing the trend of various musical genres instilled by her father, Vanessa then went on to pursue formal music training in piano, trumpet, and voice in order to become a well-rounded musician. A
recipient of various music performance awards and grants, Vanessa loves rnb, dance & hip hop and is frequently invited to musical collaborations by different producers and artists.
A versatile actress, Vanessa enjoys acting in everything from live theater to the current medium of film/tv/webseries portraying roles as just about anything you could imagine: a witch, a grandpa, a werewolf, a free-spirited girl, to a vampire queen, a rock n roll groupie, and a vengeance filled drifter.
