Introducing Vera Blue; debut single and video for ‘Hold’ out now
Meet Vera Blue, the new project from one of Australia’s most promising talents.
Cutting her teeth as a folk artist in the small town of Forbes, 20-year old Vera Blue first found her feet as a singer and then an acoustic guitarist. Now, she’s found her sound, mixing the music she’s long loved within the realm of electronica. The results are sometimes gentle, sometimes ferocious and always show-stopping, with her commanding vocals front and centre.
Today she emerges with her debut single ‘Hold’, the bewitching first taste of a five-track EP.
Written together with veteran producers Andy Mak and Tom Macken and Melbourne songstress Gossling, ‘Hold’ matches acoustic guitar with piano, production and Vera Blue’s very candid songwriting. “This song is about finding someone who pulls you out of a dark place,” she explains. “It’s about when you’ve opened your heart so many times to people and you finally find that person who is there to protect you, to look after you, even when you’ve hurt them and they’ve hurt you. You never give up on them.”
