Singer/songwriter Vanessa Delaine is blessed with a voice that leaves audiences breathless. Her soothing vocals contrast with the howling blues riffs of guitarist Michael Barnard. Her songs encompass an original blend of Blues, Country and Roots and are staggeringly captivating.
Ever so lively on stage, Delaine is at home telling stories and singing clever lyrics. Audiences are intrigued by the variety of styles/genres as they move from bluesy, upbeat, toe tapping songs like ‘Feels so Good’ to sultry, moody ‘Moon Blues’ with its Chicago grit slide guitar and unforgettable lyrics.
With a repertoire that incorporates songs from her ‘Runaway’ Album (Dec 2015) and ‘Wild & Free’ Album (Oct 2017) and a handful of songs that are yet to find their way on to an album, Delaine is entertaining whether solo or performing in the duo, simply alluring and leaving everyone wanting more.
Delaine won Best Female Performer in 2018 at The American Tracks Awards for her single ‘Live for Today’ and was a finalist for Female Vocalist of the Year 2018 at the Gold Media Medallion Awards. With charting success in USA, Europe and Australia and close to 30 awards for two albums and three music videos, she is very passionate about what she does.
Having performed at Yackandandah Folk Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Basin Music Festival and more recently Port Stephens Blue Water Country Music Festival, she has toured extensively around Australia with her original music and has been performing on both sides of the Tasman since childhood.
