It's been less than two years since VÉRITÉ performed her first live show, but she's already packed in a career's worth of highlights. Performing at massive festivals like Lollapalooza and Firefly, surpassing 12 million streams on Spotify with a pair of critically acclaimed EPs, crisscrossing the US and Europe for her own headlining shows, and opening for big names like Stars, MS MR, and Tove Lo; she has amassed a mountain of media praise everywhere from Buzzfeed and Billboard to Nylon and SPIN.
VÉRITÉ began her music career while working full-time as a waitress at Applebee's in Times Square. Over the course of nearly two years, she crafted the 'Echo EP,' a stunning debut which showcased her unique brand of poignant, emotionally intense alt-pop. SPIN praised her "incredibly strong club-ready cuts," naming her one of five new artists to watch, while BuzzFeed hailed lead single "Strange Enough" as one of the best songs of the summer. Upon its release, the track hit #1 most viral on Twitter and earned her the #1 spot on Hype Machine, along with additional love from Harper's Bazaar, Refinery29, Idolator, and more. She followed it up with the 'Sentiment' EP, which TIME called "gorgeous," with "complex electronic arrangements" and "rich and ethereal vocals."
VÉRITÉ self-funds every aspect of her career, following her own design and operating outside of the major label system as a truly independent success story. She's about to hit new heights with the release of her most mesmerizing collection yet, the 'Living EP.' Recorded with an all-star cast of producers including Stefan Graslund (Charli XCX), Tim Anderson (Banks), Zach Nicita (MS MR), Peter Thomas (Betty Who), and James Flannigan (Kodaline), the EP showcases VÉRITÉ's remarkable growth and sophistication, as she spins dark, vulnerable confessions into infectious, danceable anthems. Opener "Underdressed" reveals a new edge to her haunting, silky vocals, while the reverb-laden guitars of "Constant Crush" give way to pulsing percussion and hypnotic melody lines, and the minimalist "Gesture" strips everything back down to its absolute rawest, ending with a gorgeous stack of a cappella harmonies." It's hard to believe we've only just met VÉRITÉ considering all she's already accomplished, but as she continues to reveal new depth and nuance with each release, it's clear we'll be getting to know her for a long time to come.
