This far into her stellar career, Vanessa Amorosi remains one of the most exciting singers on the planet. Her song-writing and dynamic vocal range have seen the artist sell over two million records worldwide. She has released seven commercially and critically acclaimed studio albums, received sixteen ARIA and APRA nominations, and stopped the world in it's tracks with her performance of ‘Heroes Live Forever’ and ‘Absolutely Everybody’ at the Sydney Olympics.
Vanessa reached incredible success in 1999 with her debut single ‘Have A Look’ followed by mega-hits in Australia and Europe with ‘Absolutely Everybody’ and ‘Shine.’ Her debut album ‘The Power’ reached #1 in Australia, #7 in the United Kingdom, #1 in Hungary and the top 10 in several European countries. This was followed by a European tour performing to thousands of people for over two solid years at the age of twenty.
In 2008 Vanessa returned with her third album ’Somewhere In The Real World.’ That year, radio smash-hit ‘Perfect’ became the most played song by an Australian artist.
2009 saw the release of platinum-selling ‘Hazardous.’ The first single to be released, ‘This Is Who I Am’ debuted at #1 on the ARIA singles chart and achieved Double Platinum sales. That same year, Vanessa had the honor of recording duets with superstar Mary J. Blige and American rock band Hoobastank.
Vanessa has toured worldwide to millions and joined the stage supporting incredible artists including Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), KISS, INXS, Rob Thomas, Savage Garden, Macy Gray, Bryan Adams and touring Europe with Joe Cocker.
In 2019 Vanessa released her fifth studio album ‘Back To Love’ followed by an Australian solo tour and successful festival tours 'Red Hot Summer Tour' and 'One Electric Day.’ In 2020, Vanessa released 'The Blacklisted Collection’ made up of songs that had been previously rejected by major labels. The album debuted at #1 on the AIR 100% Independent Music Charts and #2 on the ARIA Digital Albums Chart.
In 2022 Vanessa was back in the charts with her fourth Top 10 album, ‘City Of Angels,’ debuting at #1 on the ARIA Australian Albums Chart, #7 on the ARIA Album Chart and #1 on the Independent Music Charts. ‘City Of Angels’ was released through Vanessa’s own indie Record Label ’Scream Louder Records’.
