Vera Blue – one of Australia’s most exciting breakthrough artists – is excited to be back home for her LADY POWERS TOUR this May.
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 Blue project, 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.’
‘Lady Powers was one of the most special tracks on Perennial for me, and definitely one of the most fun to play live. Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on for the new live shows, this is going to be next level! I seriously cannot wait to celebrate LADY POWERS with you all!! It’s going to be super special to share these moments with you.’
Perennial sees Vera Blue finding arresting new ways to channel a voice Australia has already fallen for. Unflinchingly honest, it’s the album she had to write, with a sound that is entirely her own.
After a huge 2017 playing completely sold out tours across Australia, North America and UK, and multiple festivals including a standout performance at Splendour In The Grass, Vera Blue is happy to be home playing her biggest shows to date.
