First Four November Tour Dates Cancelled

 Hellooooo out there,

It's due time for me to explain why I am rescheduling and unfortunately cancelling some shows.

I announced that I was pregnant during the first week of tour. The day after our NYC show on Oct 15th, I was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy, or in my case it was a fallopian pregnancy (the embryo settled in my tube, which is the width of a straw.)  This is not considered a viable pregnancy because the fetus cannot develop and it is a high risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding.

We caught it relatively early so I was given a shot of Methotrexate, a mild chemotherapy instead of having surgery. This would hopefully shrink the pregnancy and save my tube. My doctors didn't want me leaving the city so that I was very close to hospital at all times. My mgmt moved to reschedule some shows (we hope to announce information about the makeup dates very soon).

This past Monday, Oct 28th, 11 days after the chemo shot and despite our best efforts, my tube started to rupture and I was experiencing internal bleeding. This article was the key I needed to diagnose my own rupture and get me to go to the ER - The Lancet http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(11)61901-6/fulltext.  My doctor performed a successful surgery and removed my entire right fallopian tube.
 

[On the bright side my other tube and ovaries are perfectly healthy. I also wanted to note that there is a theory that an appendectomy I had when i was 12 (for a ruptured appendix) had screwed up my right tube with scar tissue etc, and that's why my embryo got caught in the tube.  In case you are a woman with a past appendectomy definitely take note.]

It is also very important to note that this is the second time I ended up in the ER without underwear! However, upon waking up the next morning in the hospital, and as my doctor was explaining to me what happened the night before, my fiancé showed up.  He had flown all night.  He had my underwear.  My hunter green lace ones:-)  I realize I am a lucky woman on many levels here.

Unfortunately, today, a week to the day from my emergency surgery I started getting intense nerve pain in one of my incisions.  I was all set to fly to Vancouver on Wednesday but, alas, I am not ready yet.  So, sadly, I will need to cancel the first four dates of my November tour - this includes Vancouver, Bellingham, Portland and Seattle.  I need to stay close to my doctors and the hospital in case this initial pain turns into something more serious.  I'm ready to get back out there mentally though and if all goes even remotely as planned I will be ready for San Francisco.

I'm so bummed about having to jank up this tour.  It started off pretty great.  My favorite even.  Gimme a couple more days, I'll be ready.  Thank you for all your support and understanding through this.

Love,

Vanessa

Remaining October Dates Cancelled

Unfortunately due to a medical emergency, we are terribly sorry to have to reschedule the last four dates for Vanessa's Oct run starting with The Birchmere show on October 17th and including the Charlotte, Nashville and Atlanta shows. The November tour is unchanged. Please be assured that Vanessa is fine but the nature of the issue is such that it needs to be tended to immediately. 

Changing show dates is an incredibly big deal to us and we want to apologize sincerely for any inconvenience. Tickets will be honored at the new dates (once we re-schedule them) but if you feel you would prefer a refund, please seek that at the ticket point of purchase.

*Note From Vanessa

Hey!!!

I'm excited to say that I'm comin' out on tour this fall!  It's been way too long:) This show will be stripped down (rather baroque actually) me, piano and my dear-friend-killer-violinist Skye Steele. We'll cook up a good setlist of old stuff, lots of stuff from the Rabbits on the Run album and a handful of new tunes from the new album (the one that I've been working on at Real World, the one that comes out next year, the one I'm VERY psyched about).  I'll be doing a run in October and then another run in November (which we'll announce in a few weeks).

We will be selling some things-vinyl, tees and a lithograph (no chocolate this time....next time).

See ya soon 
Love,
Vanessa

A QUICK NOTE FROM VANESSA

Phantoms!

I haven't written a proper note in a while.  After my last orchestra gig in October, by the sea, in North Carolina, (the night of the hurricane), I've mostly been laying low. Traveling...but not for work: Chicago, Providence, Phoenix, Bath.  All the while I have been writing a new record, slowly weaving this project together.  I spent three weeks at Real World Studios last month and I've figured out the sonic palette for said album with Mr Steve Osborne.  This will be another roots-deep collaboration and aesthetically in the vein of Rabbits but heading into the thicket, a new place, so we gettin a bit crafty. Hear the Bells may have to be given credit for the door opener to the sounds on this one. 

I've also been so happy playing with my talented friends from other bands. Wonderful musicians who make me see things differently and have helped me distill some of my own ideas even. I need to send these people chocolates and gold to further express my gratitude. 

Now I'm back in NYC, at my desk, just in from Pennsylvania, where Victor blissfully slid around on a frozen lake chasing balls (he's a dog not a man). I've got half an album to complete and tons of canvas to dye indigo. I've also been knee deep into sleeping like a teenage boy, the Grace Coddington memoir, Tracy Anderson, beer and neon signs. 

Keep it classy.

NEW TOUR DATES WITH STEVIE NICKS

 

Sometimes music is a purely spiritual experience.  That's how I feel when I watch Stevie Nicks.  Miss Nicks is her own breed of shaman, and I'm psyched to announce that while she is on tour next month I will open a few shows.  I'm totally honored and excited to see my friends again.  I highly recommend coming out and getting a glimpse.  It’s always inspiring to see a pure artist like Stevie.  As for moi?  I’ll play a little set...mostly stuff from Rabbits, a few ear worms and will test out some new ideas (all with the violinist Skye Steele).

July is shaping up to be the best month of the year. Seriously.

I bet summer is treating you all well.  I can feel the beaming tans thru this gadget.

A MESSAGE FROM VANESSA

 

Dear Phantom Friends,

The album, the collaboration, the arts and crafts project that is Rabbits on the Run, is a vault of melodies, philosophies, and questions that will forever preserve the past three and a half years of my life. A chunk of time that has reshaped who I am and has humbled me. The process of making the record was restorative and prickly and shook me out of a ten year slumber. It was also magical. I made this record with a group of artists that I never thought I'd get to work with. On the eve of this release, as I type in to black buttons, and stare at a glowing screen in my hotel room, I feel grateful that I'm able to create music and send it out into the world like some sort of ship on the sea. It is how I connect. It is how I stay alive. I realize now that this record isn't mine anymore, it belongs to the hearts and brains of those that connect with it. And I humbly hand it over. I hope that it brings you to life in the way that it brought me to life.

Love

Vanessa
