Vera Ellen

Bio

Vera Ellen is a Wellington/Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist and wildly prolific songwriter, who some may recognise from LA band Girl Friday (Hardly Art), or grungy NZ 4-piece Maple Syrup.

Vera Ellen is an expert when it comes to clear and concise songwriting; every note and beat is exactly the required dose. The artist’s Flying Nun debut, It’s Your Birthday, is stacked full of hooked-to-the-brim melodies, and cleverly guided by Vera’s clear, confident and relaxed vocal presence.

It’s Your Birthday, was written over the space of a few years. Crafting post-punk and noise elements into something slightly sweeter, the album chronicles the highs and lows of Vera’s early twenties. Each song hits some kind of unforgettable, yet relatable, touch stone in Vera’s life.

Vera has had multiple tracks featured in the NZ Official Alt Charts, with the first album single, You! peaking at #2, and also listed as 'One To Watch' by the same Official NZ Charts body. Upon release, the album reached #15 on the Official NZ Top 20 Album Charts. When Vera is in New Zealand, she makes great use of her time — last year opening for the likes of Don McGlashan, Reb Fountain and joining the line-up for three sold out shows with indie darlings, The Beths.
