Soulful blues singer/saxophonist Vanessa Collier is headed to Southwestern Ontario for shows in Chatham and Windsor this weekend thanks to the Canada South Blues Society. The Texas musician hits the stage at the KBD Hall in Chatham on Friday night (April 27) and in Windsor at Rockstar Music Hall on Saturday (April 28).
The five-time Blues Music Award nominee is touring to support her latest release Honey Up available on Phenix Fire Records. It’s her fourth studio album and the second for Phenix Fire. Next month, she’s up for two awards at the Blues Music Awards show ‘Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year’ and ‘Instrumental – Horn Player of the Year’. She’ll be at the 40th Blues Music Awards show on Thursday, May 9 in Memphis, Tennessee.
Vanessa checked in with 519 ahead of her Southwestern Ontario shows to chat about music, the blues and her passion for the sax.
Tickets for both shows are still available at the respective venues.
