"You Ain't Unlucky" Releases FEB 19 2021
Call It Roots, Call it The Blues, Call It What You Will - It’s 100% Veronica Lewis: and she delivers big with her debut album, “You Ain’t Unlucky” on Blue Heart Records. It's an uplifting, authentic, and original message to the world at a time when we need it most.
A seasoned pro and award winner at 17, Veronica rocks the piano and electrifies audiences with music that’s exciting and energetic, yet rhythmically complex and challenging. Her strong, expressive voice is punctuated with a light and delicate vibrato, belying her age. Blues progressions are a launching point, evolving into original songs with stories that are both thought provoking and humorous. Veronica’s soaring vocals and serious keyboard chops will get you moving, while serving it all up with a little New Orleans gumbo filé rhythm on the side. Her tight, straight-ahead trio of piano, drums, and sax delivers a stunningly “full-on” sound made for dancing, as Veronica belts out a message made to heal the soul.

"Lewis delivers an uplifting recording as she sings and rocks on her piano. She paints herself an auspicious debut that promises much more from this engaging new artist." MAKING A SCENE
"Veronica's dynamic keyboard work is not for the faint of heart, with fiery vocals to match. It's almost hard to tell what drives the music more: her raucous piano or her quicksilver vocals...Her left hand works the bass lines with devilish authority. Her right hand floats like a butterfly and stings like a fistful of bees...Did I mention that she is 17 years old?"
"Her debut album, You Ain't Unlucky (Blue Heart Records), is fabulous, showing a preternatural talent with the chance to become a star in the music business." BluesBYTES
"It is by deploying all her talent and all her energy that Veroncia Lewis comes to us, offering on a silver platter a treasure of the first order in which the blues are tinted with colors coming from the deepest roots of the genre but also an elegant touch of soul",
ZIC A ZAC ~ France
'When she uses her voice, an elastic and ubiquitous vibrato hits you from many sides, Veronica whirls between the notes like a gymnast on rings. Perhaps transforming the paradoxical " Is You Is My Baby " (with which everyone from BB King to Joe Jackson, from Dinah Washington to Diana Krall) into something that its author, Louis Jordan, could not have foreseen: variations , trespassing, experimentation." Zete Emme ~ Italy
"You Ain't Unlucky" is the surprising rocking debut of the punchy, from behind her piano relentlessly, Veronica Lewis. You don't have to write it on your stomach or God knows where, because one thing is for sure, we will definitely gone hear a lot more nice things from this young lady!...“ ROOTS TIME ~ Belgium
