She didn't need to worry. Her CD COTTON-POLY BLEND gets you at the first listen. There aren't too many artists that do that these days. At the time that I'm writing this, there is a lot of talk about ANNIE LENNOX's latest CD 'SONGS OF MASS DESTRUCTION'. While I am a huge fan of Ms. LENNOX, let me tell you that I'm spinning COTTON-POLY BLEND a lot more than I am 'SONGS OF MASS DESTRUCTION'. LENNOX's first single 'DARK ROAD' has nothing on 'PALM OF YOUR HAND'." 10-7-2007: Dan MacIntosh gives us a very nice review on Indie-Music.com! 9-28-2007: Interview with Vanessa published on Slim Critchlow’s Open Mic Documentary website.
