DEATH LOVES VERONICA
Veronica is the creator, composer, and vocalist of electro/darkwave/post-punk, and at times post-industrial, solo project DEATH LOVES VERONICA and based in the USA. Her first demo album, Vampiros Electric (2018), was widely described as a cold wave-minimalist sound created with a variety of synth work and distinctly clean vocals.
Veronica's first stage appearances were at age 15 as she wrote and performed originally in punk rock. She then moved into studio work with deathrock band Veronica's Veil in the early 90s.
As the former singer of legendary, but now defunct, Veronica's Veil, Veronica opened for acts such as 45 Grave, David J (of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets), Lydia Lunch, and has been billed alongside Kommunity FK, Fear, The Adicts, and several others. In 2000, Veil was included on a tribute album to Rozz Williams, formally of Christian Death. After an extensive hiatus and the loss of their guitarist, Veil attempted a two year long reformation and recorded a studio album that is yet to be released. Veil then disbanded again.
Veronica's focus became her solo project, and released the In Nightmares EP on April 1, 2019. This album retains a lot of darkwave electro sound while incorporating post-punk and deathrock elements that stem from her original artistic roots.
A collection of her works has been released on European label Swiss Dark Nights entitled, Three Acts (see below). It was then followed by a full-length album, Lucid Dreams.
When not in the studio or writing, Veronica was performing with the Death Loves Veronica live act until shows were cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
Veronica has been vocal about the importance of addressing mental health issues and is in treatment for neurological conditions such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), and Chronic Migraines. She urges people to embrace their differences and to seek help when available.
Veronica has composed music and played several instruments since childhood which helped her to cope with sensory issues, learning disabilities, and childhood abuse.
