With this collection of 14 new tunes, Vessels will be performing slide guitar on her own recordings for the first time. Listeners can hear Vessels’ slide on Track #7, “The Devil In Your Eyes.” Dana Abbott is featured playing cello on Track #13, “Burn.” Vessels’ favorite song is “Dear Love,”—a love letter to love itself that features incredible performances from all the album’s musicians.
Vessels, who has traditionally been known more as a bluesy balladeer than a rocker, says she was inspired to shift artistic direction shortly after wrapping up her first album, 2013’s fan favorite, Home. “I was listening to Janis Joplin and I was really taken by her blues-rock stylings,” she says. Vessels first debuted on stage as a solo performer during an Open Mic night in 2012. Her journey with music, goes back much further. “I began writing songs at about eight, and, later, a friend and I recorded and played one of our songs for our fifth-grade class,” says Vessels. The song, titled “Take a Risk,” perfectly exemplifies Vessels’ musical evolution—and the powerful new songs that listeners will love in Storm Coming.
