Get to Know Vera Bloom!
Hello Vera Bloom! Thank you for speaking with me today!
Hello! Thank you so much for having me.
Tell us about your latest release!
My most recent releases were 2 singles called "Say Goodbye" and "Mud". They are songs claiming my independence and strength, and also definitely helped me get a little anger out at someone who didn't recognize my worth. I am healed now, but I hope they can serve as a helpful and fun way to help anyone else who has been in a position of not being respected and treated right.
What was the creative process for it?
Writing from pain is really easy for me, as I'm sure it is for many songwriters. My process is usually the same. I can't sleep and know I need to get something out. So, I pick up my acoustic guitar and usually within an hour I'll have the song out. Then, after polishing up some rough edges I make a full and arrangement demo on my computer and lastly bring it to my band to learn. That's when it really comes alive and then we go into the studio and cut it as live as possible. I love keeping the live energy in my recordings as much as possible.
Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
There aren't any bands or artists that particularly stick out for me. I never wanted to be anyone else but I totally believe that everything I've ever heard, and every band and artist I've ever seen live has impacted me or influenced me in some way. How could it not?
Who would be a dream collaboration for you?
Honestly, I think working with Joan Jett would be so amazing. She seems like the most calm and coolest person ever. I really admire her.
Do you have a piece of advice you carry with you that you like to pass on to other musicians?
Listen to your gut, work hard, but also take your time.
Any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for?
Yes!! I have another single coming out very soon that I am excited for. I can't wait for you all to hear it. This one is a special song to me and I've been working hard at creating a lyric video to it, too.
