Vanessa Bley (New York, NY)



Vanessa is a New York City Based composer, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. She is currently in the studio with David Kahne at Avatar and Stuart Matthewman of SADE. Expect an EP out soon and record to follow.

"There are plenty of girls with guitar and/or pianos out there, yet so few who put crafty songwriting before confessional statements. If you're into Jon Brion-style chamber pop, take a listen to Vanessa Bley's "From My Head" and rejoice in its rollicking, wide open piano groove and flute arrangement. No doubt Bley has learned a thing or two from her dad, free jazz piano legend Paul Bley, but she's clearly employing her skills in service of the almighty Pop Song, which is an art form few folks even bother to attempt anymore. And like Brion, she plays all her own guitar, bass and percussion parts, in addition to producing her tunes. Take that, Sara Bareilles." - Colter McCorkindale, The Deli Magazine.
