A week after COVID-19 forced VÉRITÉ to cancel a sold-out, national headlining tour mid-way, personal storms that would entirely uproot and change her life also hit.
Quarantined and on her own, she wrote Younger Women, the first song from her latest project New Limbs: Volume 1. An exploration not confined by traditional structures, New Limbs defines the ethos of her next chapter and mirrors the uncertain era we all find ourselves in: an opportunity to experiment with new ways of working and connecting (in this case with sounds, genres, collaborators, and fans). VÉRITÉ used the forced isolation to hone her production skills, embracing the challenge to innovate as she has in every other aspect of her career: one that has come to be emblematic of the new music industry. A prolific and “spellbinding” (NPR) songwriter, executive producer and performer, her independently produced albums, EPs and singles have garnered 300M+ streams across all platforms with 1M+ monthly listeners. From the beginning, overcoming adversity has been familiar terrain for the young artist; she’s learned to thrive while hustling in uncertainty. “I’m excited to find new ways to share and connect with the people who listen to my music right now,” she says about the current challenges facing the music industry and a series of initiatives she’s soon to unveil.
