Hey guys! Haven't posted here in a while --- I've been like super busy recently (moving to a new place!).

But I thought I'd do some shameless self-promotion and give a link to my YouTube account. Right now, all that's there is a cover of (of course) A Thousand Miles, but within this weekend I should have an original song called Don't Come Back Around on there. :)

Let me know what you guys think!


My friend snapped some really good ones... I'm waiting for her to send them to me, but after that they're all yours. ;)

what did she end up singing?

Now, I didn't get there until after she had started (I blame the red line), but here's what I saw:

A Thousand Miles
Who's To Say
Heroes and Thieves
Half a Week Before the Winter

Glad to get the info out! ;)

OMG the show was amaaaaaaazing! Did anybody else get to go and see her?

And walking in the rain... I'm really sorry to hear your car broke down! Oh, the perils of being a Nessaholic... :)

Hi!!! Not sure if this has been posted already, but I heard about this on the radio and immediately thought of y'all, so here's the website:

Well, at least she's playing another concert, right? :)

Edit: Just realized I'm in the wrong area... forgive me? ;) This should probably be in Live Shows.

Alright, so obviously we're not all going to agree as to what the best Vanessa album is... but here's what I think.

For me, Harmonium and Heroes & Thieves are the best... and, while Be Not Nobody has some great moments, it's not even close to the other 2 in terms of musical complexity, vocal abilities, and melodic content.

Harmonium is more like the sophomore album to Be Not Nobody (which it is, but hear me out). Think about it: same record label, slightly more mature direction, more creative control, Ron Fair still being available, etc.

And obviously, Heroes & Thieves, seeing as it is on a different record label, is going to sound a little bit different. However, I actually think that while it can get very commercial and synthesized at times, the songs themselves are wonderful. What I think could have made this better is using the same style of arrangement and mix that they used on the two previous albums: supplementing V's inspiring piano (not synthesizer, piano) accompaniment with strings and other such orchestral instruments. Honestly, that's the only thing that I think may have obstructed the presentation of these equally wonderful songs.

Hehe I don't hate her voice, but I found her too overbearing in the song. I saw VC in concert in Alexandria and the song was actually a lot better without Stevie.

I actually really love Harmonium (but IMO Heroes and Thieves looks kinda the most like her? Haha not the intimidating part, but it looks like her.). Thought that the piano was a good idea, and the cover fit the album.

Hehe good call... that American Juniors girl was WAAAAY better on the show.

I've actually found a few people I like, and really want to wait until Hollywood (like most of the time) to pick somebody who I LOVE. Haha. And generally, my favorites (Carrie Underwood, Katharine McPhee, and Jordin Sparks) have made it really far (2 winners and 1 runner-up). So, hopefully I can do it again lol.

But the one girl whose last name was like McKinney or something... she was kinda Broadway and I loved her. haha.

Hey iamcoffee!!! (love the username, btw)

Where I go for songs/sheet music is I've downloaded her demo tape and other performances. Hope this helped!


Actually... I kinda had an issue with the lead girl. As hard as it is to sing a cappella (and I'm not knocking her), she had some major pitch issues. It's cool to hear this song we've all heard like fifteen million times a different way. It was pretty cool, and that particular a cappella group does a lot of popular music covers.
