Noisemaker: Vanessa Barnes of Semi Sweet

14 Sep

In Orange County, there is only one group predominately of females who call their music “bitch pop.” Their name in itself can tell you a lot about their music. Semi Sweet can be dark sometimes, nice sometimes and sexy with songs like “Sleazy.” Plus who doesn’t love a female drummer? Female drummers are a rarity but thankfully more and more ladies are starting to pick up drumsticks and show the boys how girls can kick ass too. Vanessa Barnes is one of the few female drummers in OC (Tomorrows Tulips and The Colourist also do) and she knows how to rock it. Let’s get to know her a little better.
