Nowhere Sounds Lovely


Born in Italy to a Sicilian-American father and a Guatemalan mother, Cristina Vane has always had a tenuous relationship with identity and place. Powered by her signature take on blues and rock, Vane's debut album, 'Nowhere Sounds Lovely', documents her first summer-long tour across the United States after moving to the US for university, where she came face to face with the breadth and depth of the American landscape, and her own place within it.

Following her cross-country journey, Vane relocated to Nashville where she hoped to find a larger community of like-minded musicians. Working with Grammy-award winning drummer and producer Cactus Moser (known for his work with Wynonna Judd) on 'Nowhere Sounds Lovely' was assurance enough that she'd come to the right place. "When it came to the album, I wanted it to be a reflection of who I am, not just of the old music that I've come to love", she explains, "and I'm essentially a rock kid who is obsessed with old music." Moser also played drums on the record, and his style "has some grit and some rock, mixed with these really awesome references to traditional roots music", says Vane. The album was engineered by Rodney Dawson, and also features bass player Dow Tomlin, fiddle player Nate Leath, and pedal steel player Tommy Hannum. These players imbued her blues rock sound with tinges of country and old time for the first time in her career, reflecting the expansion of her own musical palette that summer.

Vane's perspective on American music is decidedly a unique one, but absolutely an authentic one, and if 'Nowhere Sounds Lovely', is any indication, Blues is all the better for her arrival.
