Vanessa Collier Announces ‘Heart on the Line’ Summer Tour
Vanessa Collier is thrilled to get back on the road after the long pandemic hiatus. She is so delighted to be performing once again on stages across the world, hoping that she can make a difference with fans and followers along the way. She explains:
“I am driven to do this because I find it a total form of expression and connection. I love connecting with an audience and feeling their energy and I hope to inspire people to follow their dreams and passions, to find what brings them joy, and then to pursue it doggedly.”
Collier is an accomplished soulful blues singer and saxophone player, a seven-time Blues Music Award (BMA) nominee and a two-time BMA Award Winner for Horn Player of the Year (2020 & 2019). She is also pleased to be able to share music from her fourth album, self-produced, 2020’s Heart on the Line. Her music mixes a variety of genres into her personal amalgam of funk, soul, rock, jazz, and blues. She also takes time to run Blues in the Schools programs, connecting with young people eager for the guidance she provides.
Her first show of the Heart on the Line summer tour is at a fund-raising, Pre-Lima Crossroads Festival concert under the Big Tent, West Stage, at Fanatics Pub in Lima, New York. this tour also takes Collier to West Virginia and Pennsylvania and to the Pittsburgh Blues Festival and the Berk Jazz Festival.
