With an ethereal voice providing the foundation for an absorbing body of songs, her haunted Americana twang has a beguiling, timeless quality.

vera decided to make the album entirely alone, picking up instruments she had never played before, drawing from them the internal music that had for so long gone unexpressed. She recorded using anything at hand. Bones and breaking glass, chains and filing cabinets, hammers and two-by-fours. Countless moving parts meticulously layered and arranged. What emerged from these sessions was a collection of ten finely-honed and immaculately-rendered ballads. Poems and stories delivered in a mannered but casually dismissive style–-full of sorrow, yet arch and wry. “Vera Sola is a masterful story-teller that exudes an effortless mystique” - The Line of Best fit.
