About the Artist(s)

Vanisha Gould came to New York in 2015 from Simi Valley, California. Inspired by artists like Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Joni Mitchell, Carmen McRae and Ella Fitzgerald, she has successfully curated her own sound as a composer and band leader. Performing originals and music from the Great American Songbook on several groundbreaking stages both in New York and overseas, she aspires to continue sharing her voice with audiences in New York and beyond.

Gould is excited to bring her band to Vancouver where she will perform original music that will appear on her first solo album titled ‘She’s Not Shiny, She’s Not Smooth’. The album will be recorded in Vancouver after this performance. The music you will hear is new and recently conceived “Demure” is a song she wrote for her inner child. The child that shrinks to make sure those in her surroundings are comfortable, making sure her light does not over power those around her. As an adult her mindset has shifted drastically. Gould’s goal is no longer to serve the feelings of others but to serve “this music that I love”. This upcoming album is an ode to the acceptance of her flaws, and the pain that comes with growing into one’s self.

As heavy as it all may seem, Vanisha truly believes we’ll all have fun. With world class musicians, we know we will!
