Vera Blue is one of Australia’s most exciting breakthrough artists — is excited to be back home for her LADY POWERS TOUR this May, thanks to Vivid Sydney.
Following the release of her 2016 EP Fingertips featuring debut single ‘Hold’ (which has reached over 21 million Spotify streams), the unstoppable singer-songwriter’s 2017 ARIA nominated debut album, Perennial, introduces a fully-formed Vera Blue, seamlessly synthesising her folk past with a bold, electronic pop future. An intensely personal record, it traces the often-circular pathways between love and loss across its 12 tracks.
Crowd favourite from the album, ‘Lady Powers’, brings out unabashed dance elements in Vera Blue’s songwriting, an aesthetic she believes is well overdue.
‘I dance a lot when I’m performing on tour, because the songs make me want to move. Before the Vera Blueproject, I was sort of hiding behind my guitar when I was on stage, but now I can really go for it. That’s what the electronic side adds to the music.’
