    Does Vanessa write any of her own songs or does she just do covers?

      Wutti of Audio Excellence showed a clip of rtr playing Venessa’s soon to be released album. The song was a cover of Michael Jackson’s Billy Jean. This is one album I can’t miss.

        I swear I heard this exact tune today riding up an elevator if you want a hear a kickass cover of billie jean track down Chris Cornell's unplugged version he did for Swedish radio (RIP CC) I will say, the session musicians on this VH record are top notch.

        Step Number 1: Upgrade your music collection first. If you do it correctly that should keep you busy in perpetuity.

          Interesting question. Not sure how long really well known singer/songwriters have been around. I hazard a guess that most singers (or other musicians) did covers of other composers (even in classical music today - we don't ask whether Pavarotti or Heifetz wrote their own material). When I was growing up, I don't think the great singers of the day - like Sinatra, wrote their own songs. Clearly that changed in the '60's with Lennon and McCartney and Brian Wilson. Carol King, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell all began as composers, and each took a little while to become performers, some faster than others. Then there were some like Joan Baez who migrated from just singing covers to starting to write some of her own material.

          If we go way back, many (most) of the great composers also performed much of their own music - like Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven (until he was too deaf to play). In those days, the audiences wanted to hear new music - not a concert of recycled oldies. So there was a demand for compositions. Not like today, where many artists who gained fame 50+ years ago are touring again, playing the same songs they played back then, whether they were covers or not.

            Yes, since the 60's people actually writing and performing their own songs became the normal and thank god for that - so much more interesting, even when they can't sing. These people have real talent and some are still writing and performing today - bravo.

            in 2018 I see no real difference between Vanessa and other singers that cannot write songs performing in American Idol and alike. There are many thousands of excellent singers that could do this type of stuff. Certainly not something I would buy and frankly I find it hard to understand the interest. YMMV

            The song and performance on that video is soooo good. Hope other songs will be on the same quality level. I bought her previous LP because of one song and will buy the next one because of this song.

              Thankfully she’s not destroying Led Zeppelin again. That album was a trainwreck.

                  Not the ones I know. Sadly, the male oriented audiophile community is more interested in tits over talent, sound over substance.

                The first album was pretty underwhelming. I just didn't understand how the reviewers could gush all enthusiastic over it, even scoring an album of the month rating. The two songs posted aren't any more electrifying so another "ehhhh".

                Not that I have a lot against covers, it's just that covers usually lack any oomph, zip, crunch, or whatever appellation indicates emotional emptiness. That also applies to the innumerable covers of the GAS. There are good covers, Hendrix covering "All Along the Watchtower", Holly Cloe covering "Come Fly With Me" and others of that vein.

                Finally, just because a recording is "audiophile sound quality" does not mean the performance is any more flavorful than plain grits. Grits does have a use though, makes decent spackle.
