AMERICAN ROOTS PERFORMANCE: Bad Man
AMERICAN ROOTS SONG: Bad Man
CONTEMPORARY BLUES ALBUM: Fight the Good Fight
Seven-time Blues Music Award nominee Vaneese is the daughter of legendary Rufus Thomas and younger sibling of “Memphis Queen” Carla Thomas and the late Marvell Thomas. Embracing this remarkable musical legacy, she has combined all the influences of her background and experience – R & B, gospel, blues, and jazz – to cultivate a soul-stirring style that’s all her own.
“With a rare elegance, Vaneese strikes us again in the heart with these 12 new songs. A mixture of soul, gospel, country, and even Americana, Fight the Good Fight builds bridges between the different styles of popular American music.”
- Julian Crue, Soul Bag
