Australasian award-winning Singer/songwriter Vanessa Delaine was born with a voice that leave audiences breathless. Her crossover style encompasses Blues, Country, Rock, Folk and funk. Her highly anticipated album 'Wild & Free' was released 31st October 2017.

"...In my opinion, her best release to date, with twelve beautifully crafted tracks it has real depth and strong emotions attached. For Me she has found the perfect musical style and vehicle for her creations, the arrangements are well thought out, delivered with honesty, sincerity, deep feelings and it’s all packaged neatly amid some fabulous musicianship..." Stevie Connor - Blues and Roots Radio

'Wild & Free' album (Vanessa's 3rd album) is a Country Blues Album produced by Michael Carpenter of Love Hz Studio and features Michael Barnard on slide guitar, guitar and blues harp as well as backing vocals from Kylie Whitney and Jade O'Regan on electric piano. Michael Carpenter played multiple instruments on the album and Guest appearances by Ella Sunde and Tiahn Barnard.

"...She emulated stellar New Zealand born 1990 Tamworth Star Maker Talent Quest winner and latter-day superstar Keith Urban with success for an original song in the 1996 Capital Country National Talent Quest female vocalist..." David Dawson - Nu Country TV
