Vanessa Peters (USA)
met Manuel Schicchi (zang, gitaar,mondharmonica) en
"(This) folk-rock singer takes to the road with a brand new album that sets her apart from the crowd. A definite hot release this summer for the fans of female singer-songwriters."
"the record Gram Parsons might have made if he had gotten the chance."
"There's not a bad track on this record. I defy anyone with an ear for a catchy melody sung in a beautiful, rich and completely engaging voice not to be enamoured with this baby."
Ze is pas 28, maar in Austin Texas wordt ze al gerekend tot de top 10 van beste singer-songwriters. Intensief toerend door de VS en Europa doet ze een wagonlading aan inspiratie op. En die zet ze razend knap om inpakkende poëtische intelligente songs. Haar muziek is omschreven als 'a blend of rootsy pop jangle and country noir'.
"Peters is quite some songwriter and lyricist. She plays with words and ideas in an arrestingly intelligent fashion she's not a clone of anyone else."
"It's a surprise that she hasn't attracted the music biz support that would give her a breakthrough. Can't help feeling though that she's just a step away. Keep an ear out for her"
"the best kind of singer-songwriter."
"The album shows a wonderful mix of folk, Americana and altcountry of the highest level both instrumentally and lyrically, this album is one of her best creations.
"Ze bewijst met dit album dat ze een poëet van formaat is. "
Vanessa was eerder te horen en te zien bij Thalia in Baarlo,
