Segue Records > Artists > Vaneese Thomas      

Daughter of Stax legend Rufus Thomas and sister of soul sensation Carla Thomas, Vaneese Thomas has long maintained a stellar musical reputation all her own with her distinct brand of sultry vocals, tasteful arrangements, and outstanding song selection.

Vaneese Thomas is one of the great voices of our time and soul sister of the first rank. Part of a musical royal family that includes her father, R&B pioneer Rufus Thomas, and chart-topping sister Carla Thomas (represented on the album by her 1966 hit,” Comfort Me”), Vaneese has brought her virtuoso vocal stylings to hundreds of recordings.

Now, with Soul Sister Vol. One, Vaneese launches the first in an exiting series of tributes to some of the most irresistible and irrepressible music of the golden era of soul. More than just a by–the-numbers walk-through the obvious R&B “hits” of the 60s and 70s this CD is a tour through a dozen years of seminal soul and a tribute to the original soul sisters who shaped an era.
