Album Notes
Vanessa loves to sing. Her parents tell her of infant days in Texas when she would hum tunes long before she learned to talk. She's been a Southern California girl since she was 12, and she never lost the passion for singing, or the pipes. A classically trained actress, a secondary education teacher, and even a car salesperson for a brief stint, Vanessa has always returned to her first love and greatest gift: Singing.

And now this singer/songwriter's eclectic style and spirited performances have been drawing crowds to Southern California venues since her debut release of original songs entitled "Give Me a Stage" was independently released in April of 2001. Her sophomore album, "Wanderlust", has garnered big praise and big sales since it's release in August 2004, and demonstrates the promise of a talented independent artist who puts all her heart, mind, and soul into her music. She is currently in the studio working on her third offering.

The sound is earthy, real, and soulful - much like the artist herself. Vanessa creates folk-tinged pop with soaring vocals, and is most often praised for the depth of her lyrics and the strength of her voice. She borrows from many styles to create a sound that is uniquely her own - always open to experimentation, yet always honest. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly "who she sounds like", and she considers this to be one of her greatest assets. Vanessa's lyrics cover a wide range of emotions, but her most recent tracks explore loneliness, loss in love, and the persistent, God-given hope that carries us through.

Nothing Short of a Musical Masterpiece!
If you do not own this album, your CD collection is seriously lacking! I cannot even begin to describe the natural talent that Vanessa Jourdan has been blessed with- this girl is amazing! She is not your typical cookie-cutter pop/rock star. Vanessa’s genuine uniqueness shines through every song in her beautifully powerful voice, as well as through lyrics and melodies that will captivate you and leave you craving more of the same. This is how music is supposed to be! No matter where you are going, or where you have been, this inspired collection will truly touch you. Don’t stop at “Wanderlust”- I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of Vanessa’s first album “Give Me a Stage”. I have no doubt in my mind that Miss Jourdan’s incredible talent and hard work will be rewarded with the flourishing musical career that this young lady deserves. Buy this CD, I PROMISE that you will not be disappointed.


A soaring collection from a down to earth diva.
Vanessa should be proud of this one. It has soul and art, brought together by her amazingly spirited vocals. She conveys a vulnerable but smart perception of love and life. Listen to this album before you meet your prince, after you hook up, and then put it on again when he breaks your heart. Trust me, the songs will be right there with ya. If you love the honesty and emotion of folk music but demand a superior voice, you'll be delighted by Wanderlust.


Musically pleasing, lyrically honest
This album is noticeably more musically adventurous than the previous one. Good use of violin, amazing voice variations. Whatever this album lacks in originality, it makes up in its genuineness and unpretentiousness.


In a nutshell: The CD's wonderful. The songs I always want to hear in the coffee shops are waiting for me in my car, and I don't have to wait for the next set to hear them again and again. The music itself is talent at its best, so you can't regret buying it.


Amazing Amazing Amazing
Vanessa has done it again! She has released a CD that will play a great soundtrack to your life. Not only does her lyrics evoke memories of your own, but illustrates truth in life's encounters. Every song will find a spot in your heart and mind. You can’t help but sing along in the car, around the house, and even better when Vanessa is playing with her über talented friends!
