Perusers of Beat Surrenders will (I hope) have stumbled across the name Vanessa Peters a few times, now maybe you were tempted to buy a CD or a download, maybe you’d made a note to follow-up but never got around to it, well now’s you’re chance to get Vanessa’s entire back catalogue for $20, and what’s more by signing up to her fan club you get a whole host of bonus content. Those of you of a certain age may recall writing a note and posting it with a post-office money order for a few pounds to join your favourite bands fan-club, then waiting patiently for a fanzine to arrive, maybe it was a flex-disc or an exclusive signed photo – apologies for dragging you down my memory lane there – back to the future and the point of this post, this is how Vanessa’s fan club works:
You click here, which will take you over to Bandcamp where you can subscribe for an annual fee, in exchange you get Vanessa’s entire back catalog digitally, plus all sorts of exclusives, videos, perks, and new music ahead of the formal release – at all subscription levels you get access to unreleased demos, subscriber-only bonus songs, all future albums via Bandcamp as long as you are a subscriber and a postcard on your birthday – and you get that warm fuzzy feeling that you are directly supporting Vanessa in her creative endeavour all for $20 dollars – or more if you like.
In the last ten years, Vanessa has played over 1000 shows in 11 countries, receiving accolades from abroad and in her hometown of Dallas, where she was recently nominated as “Best Folk Artist” by The Dallas Observer. She continues to tour the US and in Europe, where she has a strong fan base thanks to the albums she made with her former Italian band, Ice Cream on Mondays, and the hundreds of shows she has played in Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and Denmark. In early 2015 she released her 10th album, the Americana-tinged “With The Sentimentals,” and is back in the studio working on another album of new material.
Hitch a ride now.
