Nessa Barrett came ready for a crowd at her last show in her tour at the Los Angels Hollywood Palladium on March 25th (not to mention that she also came dressed to kill – this outfit was fire). Some people might consider Nessa a Tik Tok artist, but we have different thoughts after this tour and her show tonight. 

To Nessa’s advantage, she started on Tik Tok, and luckily the Tik Tok algorithm has a fantastic way of bringing viewers the lyrics and music they need to hear. The first three songs of the night were obviously going to be from her new album, forever young. She first started with madhouse, then talk to myself, and then decay

After these three songs, I was kicked out of the pit along with 20 other photographers eager to capture Nessa bringing life to the stage. However, despite being kicked out and not being able to capture any more content for you guys, as Nessa’s photo policy is 3 songs and then your camera is confiscated, I was able to enjoy the rest of the concert as a concert attendee. 

For those who do not know, Nessa Barrett is a young and talented artist who creates music that speaks to her generation with honesty and vulnerability. Her unique style blends genres and allows her to express a range of emotions through her music. She has a powerful voice and a knack for crafting catchy melodies that have resonated with many listeners. For many fans, I know her music has been a source of comfort and inspiration, especially for those individuals who relate to her experiences and struggles. 

Taking a step back from my camera, I was able to see how much Nessa cared about her fans and how much she made the show about them. Nessa was quick to check in on her fans throughout teh show to ensure their physical safety, but she also sprinkled in pieces of advice throughout. I want you all to feel loved, and accepted. This is a safe place, a judgment-free zone, so it’s okay to be vulnerable. I’m so fucking proud that despite everything that you’ve gone through you’re still here standing in front of me.” She followed this phrase by saying, “I want you to recognize your strength because l like we forget that a lot.”

Nessa’s closing song was her new single, “Bang, Bang,” which despite being new had fans screaming the lyric at the top of their lungs, singing along with Nessa. While I did not get the chance to talk to Nessa, I know that she is grateful for everything – her fans, her music, her tour, and so much more. Nessa music is a refreshing blend of pop, alternative, and hip-hop influences that showcases her unique sound and style. With her raw and emotive vocals, she delivers lyrics that touch on themes of love, loss, and self-discovery, drawing in audiences with her relatable and honest storytelling. 

Barrett’s music has quickly gained a loyal following, with her debut single “Pain” amassing over 200 million streams on Spotify alone. “i hope ur miserable until ur dead”, continues to captivate audiences with its infectious melodies and introspective lyrics. With her strong and confident stage presence, Barrett is quickly becoming one of the most exciting young artists in the music industry today.
