Meeting My Shadow

Vanessa Collier - Meeting My Shadow

For the uninitiated, Meeting My Shadow will be a revelation. But to the long-time fans who have followed the Maryland singer, songwriter, and saxophonist through the twists of her career, this is the classic album she’s promised from the start. "Meeting My Shadow is a meeting of the past, present and future,” notes Vanessa of this second release. “A tribute to the spirit of blues tradition, a reflection on our present culture and a hopeful wish for growth, understanding and inclusion as we move forward together. It’s also a story of perseverance and empowerment, meant to share strength and provide an uplifting message.”
