Artist of the month: Vera
Our artist of the month october already started at a young age with songwriting and discovered that her strength lies in writing personal songs that, as she describes it, deal with "everyday life, love and other inconveniences". The 28-year old Dutch singer has been supported for eight years by three members of the Rotterdam based band Raskolnikov; experienced musicians who give her music an honest and acoustic sound. In general, the songs have a nice jazzy or folky feeling to them that perfectly fits with the personal lyrics. In 2009, this resulted in a beautiful album (Leave a Line) and recently the successor Bubbles and Bones has been released. On the new album, Vera has grown as a singer and is no longer afraid to use her voice with its full potential. Therefore, we are very happy with the fact that she will also perform at the Labtones Live! event on Saturday October 8th. A few songs from her new album can be played from here Labtones profile page:
