“You Ain’t Unlucky thunders out of New Orleans, levitated by a “have mercy’ wail that lifts, twists, turns, and drops us like bumper cars on a motocross track, before she drives us home and lets us down easy on the ol’ front porch” - Blues Music Magazine
Although Veronica graduated high school in 2021, she is already an acknowledged seasoned professional, rocking the keys and electrifying audiences with rhythmically complex and challenging compositions and nuclear-charged live performances. Her band is a tight, straight-ahead trio of piano, drums, and sax that delivers a stunningly “full-on” sound. Veronica belts out a message made to heal the soul. Her strong, expressive voice is punctuated with a light and delicate vibrato, containing the pain and wisdom of the ages melded with the optimism she champions and commits to in her everyday life.
Call It Roots, Call it The Blues, Call It What You Will - It’s 100% Veronica Lewis.
Veronica, a prolific songwriter with Blues progressions as a launching point, writes original songs with stories that are both thought-provoking and emotional. Her inspiration comes from a mix of musical genres and eras, ranging from Katie Webster, Otis Spann, and Dr. John all the way to Freddie Mercury and Avril Lavigne. Veronica fuses these crucial elements together with the true language of the Blues, and the energy of early rock and rollers, like Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis to create a truly individual style that is completely Veronica Lewis.
“Veronica Lewis is one of the most promising torchbearers of American Rock ‘n Roll.” - American Songwriter Magazine
A wild child born in the backwoods of New Hampshire, she was a student of the Blues before she could walk. Veronica gathers her influences from past, future, and out-of-the-way places, having heard the beckoning call of the Crossroads, the Bayou, the blinking, buzzing neon signs of honky-tonks, and the rhythms of her north country Blues roots.
Whether she pounds those keys, encapsulating all that raw power necessary to take us on a rollicking journey, or whether she plays a slow smoky ballad with drawn out passionate delivery, Veronica infuses every song with deep emotion and explosive, kinetic energy.
With one foot in the 1950s and one foot in the future, Veronica pays homage to her influences - Katie Webster, Otis Spann, and Pinetop Perkins. Combined with the authentic approach to her self-produced album, Veronica captures the essence of a time when only talent and passion dictated the success of a recording. Veronica says: “I imagined I only had one shot to lay it down in the studio, as if I walked into a recording studio somewhere back in time, like Sun or Stax and the producer just pressed the ‘record’ button and said, “Ok, Kid, let me hear what you’ve got.” Veronica laughs. “Then if I’m lucky, the roof lifts off the studio, and the rest is history”
Adding to her already brimming coffers, Veronica received two Blues Music Nomination/Awards: “Best Emerging Artist Album” and “Piano Player of the Year (Pinetop Perkins)”, as well as, “Sean Costello Rising Star” – 2021 Blues Blast Music Awards, “Best New Artist Debut Album” – 2021 Blues Blast Music Awards and “Blues Artist of the Year”- Boston Music Awards,
