Vanessa Collier

Presented by Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe

As a master musician and multi-instrumentalist who travels world-wide to perform for adoring fans, Vanessa Collier weaves funk, soul, rock, and blues into every powerful performance! With soulful vocals, searing saxophone, and witty songwriting, Vanessa is blazing a trail, racking up an impressive arsenal of honours, and has already singled herself out as an artist of distinction and one we would all do well to watch. Having won awards such as three Blues Music Awards, this international artist has spent time in the Billboard charts and continues to flourish.

Described by as a bluesy singing sax player, Collier spends much of her time on the road, performing at some of the most prestigious music festivals in the world. You may have seen her at Ottawa’s very own Bluesfest!

“A young singer with a fierce, compelling voice, she also played a mean saxophone and had the charisma to get the crowd in the palm of her hand for a full hour. ”

— Lynn Saxburg, Ottawa Sun (reviewing Vanessa's performance at the 2017 Ottawa Bluesfest)

“Vanessa Collier is a fresh face on the American blues scene, and in addition to her soulful vocals, she brings a mighty sax to the table...”
