Optimo Music presents the debut album from New Zealander Vanessa Worm, ‘Vanessa 77’, released on 10 July (vinyl and digital). The album will be preceded by ‘Heaven To Hell’ as a single on Optimo Music Digital Danceforce on 26 June.
Following the acclaimed ‘I Did A Lava Dance’, ‘Rando M !’ and ‘222’ released as part of the ‘Z Time’ EP last year, and ‘In Heaven We Are’ in April, ‘ Vanessa Worm returns to Optimo Music with a full album to show the world what she is about and how talented she is.
Vanessa Worm is exactly the kind of artist Optimo Music dreams of finding; her music fits in with no genre and no scene – it is its own genre and its own scene. Musically free and anarchic, Vanessa conforms to nobody’s dogma. Before lockdown Vanessa played a series of Southern Hemisphere live shows that entranced all who saw them. Hopefully next year she can come and do the same in the Northern Hemisphere.
On the album, Vanessa Worm said: “’Vanessa 77’, like most creative endeavours, is a journey of self-discovery. Mentally, emotionally and creatively. I spent most of my time alone in winter 2019 – focused solely on personal development and self-realisation, via the creation of this album. It was a way for me to put my mental state onto a plate – the joys, the fears, the epiphanies, and so on. I so desperately wanted to share what I was learning with the world too. I intended for ‘Vanessa 77’ to help others to heal, self-realise and alchemise. It was a 9-month process of death and a re-birth from the old into the new. I hope this album can provide some form of healing, soothing, celebration and act as a sub-conscious guide for us as we enter into this New Earth.”
