Vanessa Daou : Zipless (1994) — By Graham Reid

By SFGN Staff | John Bata Vanessa Daou, the native New Yorker’s seventh album on her independent Daou Records, “Light Sweet Crude (Act 1: Hybrid)” is meant as a first chapter for upcoming releases — and it is an eclectic breath of fresh air, which is how I would describe her wispy, understated, yet confident […]

Voci nella nebbia di Paolo De Bernardin VANESSA DAOU Light sweet crude Immaginate la voce di Yoko Ono fusa con quella di una tipica ninfetta francese in stile Françoise–Hardy-anni-sessanta, oppure uno strano incontro tra Sade e Laurie Anderson ed avrete la rappresentazione artistica concreta di Vanessa Daou, matura artista proveniente dalle Isole Vergini, ormai newyorkese […]

Vanessa Daou: Light Sweet Crude (Act 1: Hybrid) | PopMatters Review

Light Sweet Crude (Act 1: Hybrid) has the singer leaving the safe, comfortable confines of the bedroom for the thrill of the […]
