Biography

Nessie & Her Beard are a vanguard pop music group currently active in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their idiosyncratic style reflects a broad spectrum of 20th century influences focused through a deeply personal lens. Sunshine pop, musique concrète, pre-war jazz, and mutant space disco commune with exotic sounds from around the globe to produce an otherworldly audio event. The sonic chaos is reigned in, however, by ringleader and vocalist par excellence Nessie Ness. Whether Her Beard is churning out pure white noise or dreamily reinterpreting hits from yesteryear, Nessie’s distinguished vocalizations are easily recognizable and inviting to even the most conservative music lover.
The history of Nessie & Her Beard is shrouded in mystery. The only member known by name is Nessie, whose moniker is presumed to be a diminutive derivation of “Vanessa.” Nessie & Her Beard have been seen to perform variously as a duo, trio, and quintet; the number of musicians present on recordings is practically inestimable. N&HB made their first known public appearance in concert to support the release of their debut album, and have since performed in coffee shops, art galleries, and video arcades in San Jose, Santa Clara, and San Francisco, irrespectively. Nessie has been sighted busking on the streets of Santa Cruz and Los Gatos, and she can also be seen regularly probing thrift store organs with impromptu performances. A Nessie & Her Beard concert typically begins with an uneasy silence, as the audience sizes up the bizarre creatures displayed before them.
