The Iron Bear

Ness Heads is a purveyor of vibes for her listeners, developing her sound of alternative rap, pop punk, and Latin urban by exploring with a curious ear. From Kanye West and XXXTentacion to David Bowie and Nirvana, she tries to keep one artist that’s considered an icon of a genre as inspiration in her listening rotation. Ness is a musical chameleon with a voice that’s soft and malleable, showcasing her ability to blend singing and rapping.

Originally from Chicago and now based in Los Angeles, Ness Heads was raised on a steady diet of hip-hop from her brothers. She is accepting all the moments that make her happy, which continues to strengthen as she works on healthier relationships, how she utilizes her perspective as being queer in her music, and her mental health.

Ness Heads' newest EP, Junkyard Hearts, Vol.1 is now available on all platforms.
