Biography

Vanessa and the night cats are a Melbourne based Jazz band. Lead singer Vanessa eases blissfully through the realms of jazz, blues and soul, Vanessa creates a distinct, compelling sound. Often compared to the jazz, blues and soul greats with whom she draws inspiration, her voice bleeds effortlessly throughout their realm, maintaining an individual presence, exuding her strong, persuasive tone, fixed purposefully as one you’ll remember and return to again and again.

Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, Sade and Sting are sounds she grew up with and turned too for inspiration.

Priding herself on reinterpretation, adopting her own jazz, blues inflections, Vanessa brings new life to the much loved classics of contemporary and traditional music. Her original writing is largely expressed throughout her debut album ‘Fernandez and Wright Unsung’, released in 2009 with guitarist Steve Wright. Accompanied by some of Australia’s finest jazz musicians these beautiful songs were brought to life. The album was launched to a full house at Melbourne’s premier jazz venue Bennett’s Lane and received rave reviews both locally and internationally. Unsung hit #32 on the CMJ Jazz Music Charts in the US and #42 on the Jazz Week World Charts.

Perfect for your next event Vanessa and the Jazz Cats can play as a duo or band.
