Multi-award winning singer/songwriter Vanessa Delaine celebrates 25 years since recording ‘One Girl Band’ Album and shares her Country Roots with us. ‘One Girl Band – 25 Years’ includes; 3 previously unreleased songs and much loved toe-tapping songs like ‘How Can He Love You’ and ‘One Girl Band’. Recorded in 1995 and remastered in 2020 by Glenn Langford in Sydney, Australia.
There is an interesting background story to this album, which I fished for, because not a lot of info is available on it. Vanessa very kindly provided me with some information. All of the music was on a DAT tape, recorded back in 1995 and earlier. It was never officially released, it was only given to friends and family but did win some awards, nevertheless.
The songs were extracted from the tape and remastered so beautifully and purely by Glenn in 2020. Vanessa’s style is similar to Sharon Heaslip, perfectly natural and unpretentious.
The sound is crystal clear and pretty amazing, given the history of the recordings and the fact that Glenn did a lot of the work on it. A truly remarkable effort.
An EEP is more songs than 4 and less than 10, for those who don’t know my classifications!
The songs are varied, covering probably 5 or 6 of the 79 types of Country Music. The songs are easy to listen to and are given an extra layer because of the remastering and history. None of the songs sound old or dated, they sound just as fresh and relevant as they would have back then.
