Vanessa Daou was born in the island of St. Thomas located within the United States Virgin Islands on October 4, 1967 (Four months before I was even born).  She lived in the island of St.  Thomas located within the United States Virgin Islands until her seventeenth birthday.  She was first relocated to a boarding school in Massachusetts before attending Vassar College located in Poughkeepsie, New York.  With a scholarship I hand, she attended Columbia University in the City of New York to study dance.  It wasn't known if Vanessa Daou ever graduated either Vassar College or Columbia University.  It was a visual arts and art history degree that she graduated with at Bernard College (connected to Columbia University) also located in New York City.  Her debut album was released through Columbia Records in 1992.  Her second and third album was released in 1994 and 1995.
And the corporate music industry refused to release the rest of her completed albums, she recorded only for independent labels instead with a do-in-yourself type of mentality.  Her latest album was released in 2013.  Vanessa Daou continues to record albums and tour to support her albums to this exact moment in time.
