Santessa creates sound that is ravishing, alluring and instantly classic. Her debut album DELIRIUM, produced by Stuart Matthewman, (Sade, Maxwell), released through Sony UK, was critically acclaimed across the board. It has gone on to become a highly sought after collectors item worldwide. Born on the Isle of Man without a drop of Manx blood, she is a truly unique synthesis of a Ghanaian and English mother and an Irish father. Experiencing a nomadic adolescence, she absorbed the cultures of the Isle of Man, Manchester, Mallorca, Barcelona, London, Los Angeles and New York. This fueled her passion for Music resulting in a wide range of influences including Marvin Gaye, Bjork, Portishead, Bob Marley, David Bowie and Billy Holiday. As Santessa herself puts it, 'Music is a journey for me, I follow it wherever it leads'. Most recently and true to her chameleonic form, Santessa has relocated to London forming a Nu Soul duo called MANSWORLD with paul Ogunsalu (Wax Poetic, Norah Jones). The duo have just finished recording a unique, upbeat and dynamic album full of sultry, off kilter cool’.
