One word. Purple. Duane Simpson, Jesse Gentry, and Jian-Claude Mears, make up the Asheville, NC power trio that is known as Purple. This trio takes an eclectic range of popular music from the jazz, funk, soul, blues, and pop idioms and blends it into a unique style and sound that is all their own. Their show will soothe you, rock you, challenge you, and make you want to move.

Vanessa Collier

Amphitheater Stage at the Taproom at Sierra Nevada, Mills River, NC from 7pm to 9:30pm - Free Show

Master musician and multi-talented blues performer, Vanessa Collier, was recently nominated for a 2017 Blues Music Award (BMA). The Philadelphia based vocalist/saxophonist/songwriter is currently on an 11 country European tour with Ruf’s Blues Caravan, alternating between tour legs in Europe and touring back in the U.S. with a talented 5-piece band, throughout 2017. With searing saxophone solos, soulful vocals, and witty lyrics, Vanessa’s songwriting takes you through an engaging blend of blues, funk, rock, and soul in an exceptionally entertaining, high-energy performance.

A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Vanessa’s alluring vocals and stinging saxophone work saw her light up stages as part of Joe Louis Walker’s band (2012-2013), while her 2014 debut album Heart Soul & Saxophone was declared “magnificent” on Dan Aykroyd’s blues radio show, winning her accolades as a Best of 2014 Blues Breaker.

With the success of her debut album and her charismatic live performances, Vanessa has been in demand touring throughout the world and is excited to celebrate the March 2017 release of her highly anticipated sophomore album Meeting My Shadow.

Vanessa also maintains a private saxophone studio teaching around 30 students per week. She volunteers her time in schools in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland; serves as an adjudicating judge at solo & ensemble festivals; and offers jazz, blues, and saxophone clinics throughout the United States.
