Songbird Vanessa Elisha puts R&B on the map for Australia as she drops her five-track EP “Don’t Go,” a debut project of simple production (courtesy of Jrdn Gxnius) and airy, soulful vocals. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter names Monica, SWV, Jon B, Jagged Edge, and Lauryn Hill as influences on her vocal style, and Jhené Aiko and the Weeknd as artists she’s currently digging; all those influences heard in Elisha’s musical style.
Each track on “Don’t Go” touches on matters of the heart with Vanessa’s crystal clear voice standing. “Home To Me” harps on a 90s melody while the track vibes with a current R&B flow, reminiscent of a Noah “40” Sheib production, much like the rest of the EP.
“Don’t Go” is a dope debut from down under by Vanessa Elisha. See for yourself!
