ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vanessa loves to sing. Her parents tell her of infant days in Texas when she would hum tunes long before she learned to talk. She's been a Southern California girl since she was 12, and she never lost the passion for singing, or the pipes. A classically trained actress, a secondary education teacher, and even a car salesperson for a brief stint, Vanessa has always returned to her first love and greatest gift: Singing.

And now this singer/songwriter's eclectic style and spirited performances have been drawing crowds to Southern California venues since her debut release of original songs entitled "Give Me a Stage" was independently released in April of 2001. Her sophomore album, "Wanderlust", has garnered big praise and big sales since it's release in August 2004, and demonstrates the promise of a talented independent artist who puts all her heart, mind, and soul into her music. She is currently in the studio working on her third offering.

The sound is earthy, real, and soulful - much like the artist herself. Vanessa creates folk-tinged pop with soaring vocals, and is most often praised for the depth of her lyrics and the strength of her voice. She borrows from many styles to create a sound that is uniquely her own - always open to experimentation, yet always honest. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly "who she sounds like", and she considers this to be one of her greatest assets. Vanessa's lyrics cover a wide range of emotions, but her most recent tracks explore loneliness, loss in love, and the persistent, God-given hope that carries us through.

Worth 20 pounds more than I paid for it
It's not "perfect", but it's really, really damn good. I ventured this way from the $5 section, and found that there are diamonds in the proverbial rough. At first listen, I thought Jewel meets Dido meets Tori Amos meets Christina Aguilera...and no one was fighting. It was just blissful, feminine harmony. Hard to describe lest you listen and fall in love as I have. Good, good bloody stuff.

This cd rocks. I saw her live...even better. Love her!
She rocks. Listen to "Fireworks", but pretend you're seeing her live, with the cello and the violin. Is way cool.

Give Me A Stage
Although a wonderful collection of songs by a most talented singer/songwriter, her best is yet to come. I don't think there is a ceiling for this artist. She is awesome and I would love to hear even more!
