Vanessa Delaine was born in New Zealand. Spending her childhood in Christchurch (Darfield) and Hastings before heading to Australia at 16 years of age. She is at home telling stories and singing clever lyrics and loves to connect with her audience. Her songs encompass an original blend of Country, Blues and Roots and she gracefully moves through styles/genres. Whether solo or duo is captivating and leaves audiences wanting more.
In December 2019 Vanessa decided to release her first album in 2020. Celebrating 25 years since she wrote and recorded the album ‘One Girl Band 25 Years’ and its companion album ‘The 1995 Sessions’.
The Title Track, ‘One Girl Band’, is an upbeat toe-tapping traditional country song that you can’t help singing along to, the second single to be released off the latest album ‘One Girl Band 25 Years’. Celebrating 25 years since the songs were written and recorded and she is delighted by the beautiful compliments the songs are getting.
She reflects ..”I wrote this song as ‘theme song’ and even today it is still one of my favourites off the album”.
Vanessa was awarded Top 5 female vocal, her first time at Tamworth’s National Talent Quest in 1996 and the only original song performed that year. Vanessa’s Dad loved the song so much he phoned everyone he knew to play it to them over the phone but unfortunately, he died before the album was finished.
