Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #16: Jose Vanders

Jose VandersYou know how every now and again you come across an artist who you just think “yes, you’re amazing…. it’s nothing that’s particularly new or innovative, but you’re amazing nonetheless”? Well, prepare for Jose Vanders to do exactly that. At only 17 she has the voice of an angel, and is probably one of the best unsigned MySpace singer-songwriters of the past year.

Insightful, simple lyrics that everyone can relate to, she’s able to tell stories many who are 10 years older than her still struggle to do succinctly in songs:

There’s a woman with a baby trying to make it stop crying so she’s bribing with a lemon lollipop.
There’s a girl with a boyfriend she’s in way too far ’cause I saw him looking at another woman’s heart.
I saw him looking at another woman’s heart.

And people say that I’m being lazy;
I’ve got the dreams but don’t know where to go.
You think if I could choose to live here at the station, I would?

She’s a genius piano player, and isn’t bad to watch on youtube either. So make sure you go check her out – she’s probably not likely to have ahit album anytime soon, as music is just a hobby for her, but she could be one to watch in a couple of years time. Definately one to watch.

Listening to the lyrics just makes you lay back and ponder the greatness of the stories she’s constructing – they’re really quite amazing, and have a brilliant viewpoint that I wish I could have out on life.

Just amazing.
