Vanessa Collier is certainly one of the most talented young voices in soul, blues and R'n'B. The Berklee graduate not only plays the saxophone superbly, but also has a great voice. At the age of new, Vanessa picks up the saxophone. While still a student at the world-renowned Berklee School of Music, she goes on tour with blues legend Joe Louis Walker. Shortly after, Vanessa launches her impressive solo career with great recordings and stirring live performances. Vanessa has won the US Blues Music Awards Best Saxophonist award in 2019 and 2020.
Vanessa is very much on the road. Touring. Because of her great popularity, she is invited to all many major festivals. Already she is also a quasi regular guest on the legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise in the USA. At the beginning of 2018, Vanessa will be nominated for a US Blues Music Award for the first time. Namely as best contemporary blues artist. The second nomination she receives as the best wind player of the year. In 2019 and 2020 she already wins the award for best saxophonist at the US Blues Music Awards.
Vanessa loves to communicate with the audience. Feeling the energy of the audience and bringing them joy drives her. Seeing the joy on her audience's face makes her happy. She regularly releases new music. It is worth listening to her three CDs so far. They are peppered with catchy blues, soul, funk and R'n'B numbers that immediately settle in the listener's memory.
Vanessa has high expectations of the musicians in her band. Nevertheless, we have discussed with her that we would like to present her with a band that firstly she knows and secondly is perhaps one class better than the one that normally accompanies her.
With the Moeller brothers Johnny and Jay, Sue Foley and bassist Jon Penner (Sue Foley Band) the crème de la crème from Texas is on stage. In addition, Vanessa brings her ancestral keyboardist William Gorman - with her.
