Vanessa Amorosi – Heavy Lies The Head
Long admired and respected for her powerful souring voice at live shows and on recordings, iconic Australian singer-songwriter Vanessa Amorosi has earned her place as being regarded as one of Australia’s most iconic female voices.
Infused with soulful r&b and powerhouse rock delivery, Amorosi will return to her live roots as a part of Red Hot Summers series in April May 2019 performing a series of solo shows, along with some special one-off performances with other famous Aussie voices, as she hits the road for the first time in almost a decade.
The tour will coincide with the release of Vanessa’s breathtaking, emotional and long-awaited new song – HEAVY LIES THE HEAD – with more tracks to follow in coming months.
Her last album, the platinum-selling Hazardous, which featured Vanessa’s number one smash hit, “This Is Who I Am.” Vanessa’s combined album and single sales across her career have reached over 2 million worldwide.
Vanessa captured the attention of the Australian public at a tender age with her anthemic breakthrough hit ‘Absolutely Everybody’, a Top 10 smash which stayed in the charts for six months, certified double platinum in Australia and charted through Europe.
Her first album Power (2000) notched up six nominations at the ARIA awards and saw her sing “Heroes Live Forever” at the opening of the 2000 Sydney Olympics to great acclaim before a global TV viewing audience of billions. Singles such as “Shine”, “Perfect” and “This Is Who I Am” continued her hold on the charts, while the albums “Somewhere In The Real World” (2008) and “Hazardous” (2009) expanded her reputation as a singer who constantly delivered.
Vanessa used her position to become involved in a number of community causes and charities, including Kids Help Line, The Variety Club and animal welfare. As a result, she was nominated in 2003 for Australian of the Year. She went on to sell two million records. 2019 heralds Amorosi’s return to live performances and a renewed focus on music with more to come.
