OUR MOTTO - ASHES TO WINGS -
The mythological phoenix is a legendary, splendid bird that spontaneously bursts into flame at the end of its life cycle and is reborn, out of its own ashes, to live and fly anew. Vaness's life story is a reflection of this legendary story. Having experienced some very tough times in her past, she has healed, and has been reborn, and is now taking flight into a new life!
ABOUT VANESSA PHOENIX
Passionate. Raw. Seductive. That’s how Vanessa Phoenix’ fans describe her. Vanessa’s soulful voice, laced with both tenderness and grit, will grab ahold of you and dive you deep into your delicious core. Much like a seabird spotting dinner from the sky, and plunging beak first into the water, you will resurface and realize, Vanessa just fed your soul exactly what it needed.
Vanessa Phoenix began as a self-described “wicked-creative” kid. Her best childhood memories are of singing, dancing, acting, writing, and directing shows in her parent's basement. Her audiences consisted of as many friends and neighbors as she could round up, and she even charged admission! “My parent’s didn’t even take a cut.”, chuckles Vanessa. Vanessa went on to earn her B.A. in Theater and Dance at Colorado College, and then studied Vocal Performance and Songwriting at the top contemporary music school in the country, Boston’s Berklee College of Music.
After Berklee Vanessa began singing with a dance band called Souled-Out, and at which point a fan passionately proclaimed, “She’s got balls!”, over her rendition of James Brown. Her career really gained momentum in Las Vegas, where she performed regularly at the Rio Casino and became known for stopping casino patrons in their tracks.
Currently Vanessa is working on her debut album, She Lives!, set to release next year. The album has been secretly described as daringly honest and wildly passionate! The album has been said to be a masterful blend of sweet and edgy, and delivers a refreshing, powerful, and life-transforming message.
She Lives!, is fiercely feminine and is expected to evoke a new “Women’s Inner-Liberation!” Through her spicy original music and lyrics, and with a sultry and raspy voice, Vanessa’s relentless inner warrior battles forces that suppress female prowess, pleasure and authenticity. Keep a look out because Vanessa will start performing songs from She Lives!, next year. Like the mythological Phoenix bird, Vanessa Phoenix is on fire, and you are going to love feeling the heat!
