The stories on the album are all very relevant, with everyday topics such as the internet being discussed and Awkward depicts the trials and tribulations of internet dating in a very amusing way. Vanessa, a Toyota Starmaker Finalist in 2010, admits her constant source of inspiration for songwriting comes from her upbringing in Gunnedah, NSW. Vanessa Lea & Road Train are a busy working band who enjoy touring around Australia performing at Country Music Festivals such as Tamworth, Gympie Muster, Ballina and the Urban Country Festival in Caboolture, always eager to share their tunes with a much wider audience.
