Verity White is an exciting, emerging artist from Cheltenham showcasing a unique and emotional twist on female fronted rock. She takes influences from the 90s scene, mashing it up with synths, strings and intricate vocal lines to create brutal yet beautiful alternative, rock music. Energetic and engaging her band puts on a compelling live show; loved by fans of female fronted rock stalwarts like Dream Wife, Halestorm, Skunk Anansie, Garbage, The Pretty Reckless and She Makes War.
Verity is well recognised in the indie music scene in the U.K. and uses her strong social media presence to actively support mental health awareness, the arts and female empowerment. Her riot grrrl-inspired track Own Me was recently chosen by Exposure Skate to feature on the video of their 2018 championships, supporting women in skateboarding.
Fireworks magazine recently commented on Verity’s work when they reviewed her first album: “Breaking Out fits very well alongside the canon of female artists who found success in the 90s which includes such names as Garbage and PJ Harvey… White’s debut album is quite novel and incorporates all of those influences with a more modern sound.” While Prog Radar exclaimed Verity as: “arguably one of the best female artists of her generation”. Recently, Verity and her band have been impressing gig-goers at festivals (Lechlade, FeckFest, Frogfest) and live music venues (Pizza Express Live, Camden Assembly, The Slaughtered Lamb) across the U.K., as well as a live lounge slot on BBC Radio Glos. They’re now booking dates for their second tour in Spring 2019, to coincide with the release of their eagerly awaited second album, Reclaim; Set Fire. Verity writes with her husband, Alex White who also produces the music, and records at their studio Arpeggio Creative in Gloucestershire. They’re joined on stage by Joe Kelly on bass and Alex McIntosh on drums.
