Biography

Drawn by the Hip Hop emergence in the early 80's this New York/Argentine singer songwriter, wrote her first rhyme at 10 and by 16 began performing as a solo rap artist. Several years after she integrated her self-taught acoustic guitar and explored collaborations with other musicians mixing elements of rock, folk, bluegrass as well as tango/vaudeville inspired ballads to ensure that each song had it's own musical style. Veronica Sanchez recently known as Mahogany has gained recognition for her raw sarcasm and autobiographical lyrics while orchestrating rhythm heavy riffs on her acoustic guitar, that complement her sultry voice and compelling stage presence.
Now based in the East Village, Veronica has just released her full length LP titled "Christopher". With contributions from legendary drummer Cindy Blackman (Lenny Kravitz), bassist Jason Mercer (Ani DiFranco, Ron Sexsmith) & cellist Jane Scarpantoni (Indigo Girls, Beastie Boys), this album explores genres that would rarely be heard all in one album and promises to delight both listeners and critics. Also featured are veteran musicians Sonia Roberts (drums), Alex Papandopolus Pequeno (lead guitar), Edwin Alvarado (bass) and Karen Satterwaithe (cello), who contribute the live flare that fans can't get enough of.
For the past 15 years Veronica has been a troubadour of live performances. Some venues which have included; Michigan Womens Music Festival 2007 (MI). The Knitting Factory (NYC), CBGB's (NYC), Pianos (NYC), The Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), Joe's Pub (NYC)The Hard Rock Cafe (Miami,FL. & NYC), University of Connecticut, Clark University (MA), London's Mardi Gras (UK), Nietzsches (Buffalo NY), Churchills (Miami) and Safari Sams (LA).
Veronica is fierce but isn't afraid to show her vulnerability. To watch her perform, whether playing an intimate club or an outdoor festival, is an incredible experience!

"Whether you're into Hip-Hop or if you're into folk, Veronica is a performer who has created the perfect hybrid and the result is a hip, fresh and new sound that's crying out to be heard."
The Milky Way, Boston MA.
