My name is Erica, and I just joined today after hearing about this forum through the livestream performance Vanessa had today.
I am a budding artist of sorts, headed for the film, voice acting and screenwriting industry and Vanessa is the first musician/artist of any type in which I identify with on a very personal level.
She's the only artist who makes me learn more about MYSELF by listening to her music. Her style also reminds me very much of my own.
I do remind myself that she and I are definitely our own people, but her music will always hit home for me on some level.
If you want to know more about me, I have a youtube channel where I make videos for fun, or artistic fulfillment. http://www.youtube.com/user/VictorianRomantic
