In the quiet remoteness of her home studio in Thun, Switzerland, 22-year-old singer-songwriter Veronica Fusaro has developed a distinctive soul-pop sound over the course of two EP releases.
Her first new single of 2019, Fusaro states that Lie To Me is “inspired by a Friday night out, but talks about much more than just a weekend. It addresses the rapidity of the world we live in and our desperate cry to find real emotions.”
The song sees this young musician skilfully balancing the depth and playfulness of her pure, powerful yet intimate music.
Influenced by the likes of Frank Ocean, Amy Winehouse and Lana Del Rey, Fusaro first stepped into the spotlight in 2016 with her self-produced EP LOST IN THOUGHT and surprised the Swiss music industry by winning the ‘Demo of the Year’ at the prominent national M4Music Festival held in Zurich and Lausanne. Also awarded ‘Best Talent’ by the national radio station SRF3, she was subsequently nominated at the Swiss Music Awards in 2017.
Touring ever since, Fusaro’s music has matured and gained her many new admirers along the way. On stages large and small, from New Zealand to the UK and back to Switzerland, she has captivated audiences by building sound structures with live multi-instrumental loops, or simply by standing at the front edge of the stage playing her songs using just her guitar and affecting voice.
Her second EP, ICE COLD, was released in the spring of 2018 and she performed a single from it entitled Better If I Go at the Swiss Music Awards in Zurich and the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. In all, Fusaro performed almost 150 shows in 2018, with other highlights including a Clash magazine curated showcase at The Great Escape festival in Brighton.
A further 2018 single entitled Venom helped ensure more than 500K plays for Fusaro’s music on Spotify over the course of the year, while 2019 is set to be even more exciting with the announcement of ‘Lie To Me’ as the opening song from a brand new EP to be released later in the year.
And, in other thrilling news, Veronica Fusaro has just been announced to perform at the Glastonbury Festival 2019!
