"Robert Kraft, president of 20th Century Fox Music (no press)"

no press yet, but some quotes from notables:

"I've been waiting for a female songwriter who writes about political issues...The music industry needs more types of songwriters like Veronica: those who are unconventional, unpredictable and not afraid to do something different, and yet [who] makes it work at the same time!” ~Robert Kraft, President of 20th Century Fox Music - N/A


"James Newton, composer and flutist"

"You're music is a bit twisted, and I like that! I'm not into cookie-cutter music" ~James Newton, composer, flutist - N/A

Bio

Indie-folk singer/songwriter Veronica Bianqui was born and raised in Los Angeles, California but this restless traveler explores to find the new, the odd, and the authentic. She has something to say, and a big voice to match. President of Hollywood’s 20th Century Fox Music, Robert Kraft, says that today’s music industry needs more types of songwriters like Veronica: those who are “unconventional, unpredictable and not afraid to do something different, and yet [who] makes it work at the same time!” Her music appeals to a wide range of listeners across age ranges and across genres without losing its substance: a bit of funk, a bit of blues, mixed with memorable folk-like melodies, her style is what she likes to call ‘acousticized soul.’

Perhaps her unique sound stems from the fact that she has always felt she came from a different time. She can’t help that she relates more to Jack Kerouac than Perez Hilton, Bob Dylan than American Idol. Other influences include John Lennon, Joni Mitchell, The Doors and any singer of the Delta Blues. Though her music is “a bit twisted” (a term jazz composer James Newton used to describe her style), she never takes it over the top: she organically lets her songs make sudden twists and turns, surprising listeners with her poetic and often sad but beautiful lyrics.

Veronica is in the midst of preparing for a series of exciting London gigs in the coming year; she will open for up-and-coming British artists such as Animal Kingdom, Laurel Collective, Pete Roe and others. She continues her studies as an undergraduate Ethnomusicology student at UCLA but is spending the year abroad in London until mid-2010.

Veronica was personally asked to compose the track “Shame On You” for an independent feature film currently in post-production and due to be released in March 2010. She worked with producer Barrie Maguire (The Wallflowers, Amos Lee, Natalie Merchant) on the recording, who said, “I really like what [she’s] doing, and she has something to say.” Other than that track, she records most of her demos by herself in her bedroom.
As her university education comes to a close, she eagerly begins to devote her full time to songwriting and her music career. She continues to book gigs wherever in the world she may be. Though her recordings give a taste of what her music is like, it’s in her live shows that she captures and mesmerizes. And that’s how she’d prefer it anyway, real and in-the-flesh.
