12 months ago, Australian singer/songwriter Vanessa Elisha was unknown to many (including myself). But recently, she’s been making a name for herself and has already captured the attention of some top-notch publications such as Complex, Hypetrak, 2dopeboyz, Pigeons & Planes, The Fader, Revolt, The Music Ninja, Earmilk, and SPIN magazine. Not bad, right?
“2015 has seen Vanessa release collaborations with the likes of B.Lewis ‘Down For This’, CVIRO & GXNXVS ‘Latency’, Andrea ‘Down’ and Salute ‘Real Cool’. Currently putting the naltouches on her upcoming EP, Good Ones, Vanessa has been writing and recording alongside JMSN, XXYYXX, Styalz Fuego, Dave Luxe and more.”
Her killer new single, ‘Out of Time’, features XXYYXX on the beat and it’s clear that they’re a great match for each other: Elisha’s sultry early-noughties R&B-esque vocals sounds even better against a dark and moody beat from the bedroom producer.
This month will see Vanessa Elisha embark on a national tour in support of her upcoming album release. Check the dates below.
