|Description:||At 27 years of age, master musician and multi-talented blues performer Vanessa Collier has become an in-demand artist, bringing her charismatic charm, passionate and fiery performances, soulful voice, searing saxophone solos and witty songwriting to the stage. Over the past year, Vanessa toured through 11 countries, alternating between tour legs in Europe as a featured artist with Rufs Blues Caravan and back in the U.S. and Canada with her incredible 5-piece band.
A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Vanessas alluring vocals and stinging saxophone work saw her light up stages as part of Joe Louis Walkers band (2012-2013), while her 2014 debut album "Heart Soul & Saxophone" was declared magnificent on Dan Aykroyds blues radio show, winning her accolades as Best of 2014 Blues Breaker. In 2017, Vanessa continued her success with the release of her sophomore album Meeting My Shadow, earning many prestigious honors and awards.
At the 2016 International Blues Challenge(her) performances were among some of the most invigorating shows on Beale. - Art Tipaldi, Blues Music Magazine
Top-notch songwriting and sultry, R&B-soaked vocals that are complemented by her sizzling saxophone. The rich, smoky nuances of her voice will win over any music lover, and her multi-instrumental background only adds to her appeal. - Michelle Wilson, Ink19.com
A young singer with a fierce, compelling voice, she also played a mean saxophone and had the charisma to get the crowd in the palm of her hand for a full hour. - Lynn Saxburg, Ottawa Sun (reviewing Vanessa's performance at the 2017 Ottawa Bluesfest)
The Bull Run is a full-service, farm-to-table restaurant in a pre-revolutionary tavern, located about 35 miles NW of Boston, with plenty of free parking and rustic, old-world charm.
