Twin Danger | South By Southwest

What happens when you’re friends with a saxophone player? Well according to Vanessa Bley of Twin Danger, you form “a sexy, bluesy, jazzy, fusion band.” Decked out in a zipper-lined vest, Vanessa sits down with UphoricTV at the annual South By Southwest Music Festival, and discusses the formation of friendship with saxophone front-men Stuart Matthewman, and how it evolved into their band as it stands today. With her creative past, this native New-Yorker references ‘pre-rock-n-roll jazz’ in the music she writes and performs.
