SOLO WORK

Vanessa picked up an acoustic guitar in 1992 and has made a habit of acquiring random musical instruments ever since. She is currently putting her collection to use by recording her first self-produced fully solo album, to be released in 2017. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to wildlife conservation charities.

FIRST OF JUNE

Formed in Ottawa (Canada) in 1997, First of June is the brainchild of husband-and-wife multi-instrumentalists Stephane Danis (drums/bass/guitar/hammond/rhodes) and Vanessa Laurin (piano/rhodes/vocals). Blending intricate vocal harmonies and richly textured musical landscapes, the pair have perfected an otherworldly sound all their own. First of June has released seven independent studio albums and a live album, and was featured on Spiders From Venus, a female-fronted tribute to David Bowie (2003, Skipping Discs).
