EP Preview: Vanessa Forero - ´From The Uproar´
British/Colombian singer-songwriter Vanessa Forero has released her self-produced EP, a collection of 5 songs which came from a place best described by the EP title ´From The Uproar´. Forero is a skilled multi-instrumentalist as well as a producer, composer, arranger and vocalist. After being selected in 2015 by Brit Award Singer-Songwriter Beth Orton to write and perform at her UK show, Forero decided to become her own artist and record her own songs in her distinctive Indie/Folk style with Latino influences.
For her debut EP, Forero recorded and played a lot of native Latin instruments herself, and even sings the evocative bonus track ´Anhela´ in Spanish. Her sound is a reminder of her roots and has been greatly inspired by her time spent in Colombia. Forero was first introduced to a whole new music scene whilst filming National Geographic´s feature documentary ´Woman Raised by Monkeys´, a film based on the bestselling book on her mother´s extraordinary life ´The Girl With No Name´, a book that she co-wrote herself.
Vanessa Forero has recently revealed the underwater-themed video for her new single ´Same Boat´. This new track is guaranteed to plant a smile across your face and have you hum in no time. So do not hesitate to embark on a journey across the choppy seas to get to know Vanessa´s unique world.
‘From The Uproar’ is available on BandCamp as a digital download or hard copy CD.
