Vanessa Lea & Road Train is led by Toyota Starmaker 2010 Finalist, Vanessa Lea. Together with Roger Faynes and Mark Wells. When performing live, Vanessa Lea & Road Train bring their unique blend of country/folk/rock, with a wide range of instruments including banjo, mandolin and harmonica. The album can best be described as an honest look at the Aussie way of life. The songs range from a tongue-in-cheek observation of modern society, "Spoilt", which has a honky tonk feel, to a hauntingly beautiful tribute to Schapelle Corby, "Be Brave". There is a sensitive ballad, "Everything he Stood For", which describes the fight of the Aussie farmer, and a waltz written about Vanessa's grandparents, who have just celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary in Gunnedah, but also "Oh Coramba!", which is a rousing tune written about the tradition of having a drink in the pub with your mates. Other outstanding tracks are "My Old Friend", a story about the darker side of life, which has a slightly R & B feel, and the intensely proud-to-be-an-Aussie anthem, "The Lucky People". Vanessa Lea, "the little girl with the big voice", pours her soul into every tune, with her unmistakable husky tone.
