Live Music Preview - VÉRITÉ - Doug Fir 9/3
When I saw word VÉRITÉ, aka Kelsey Byrne, announced her latest tour, it invoked inner joy along the likes of which I can only get from a beautifully arranged brunch, or a beautiful pour-over arrangement (I'm looking at you, David). For me, Kelsey is one of those artists that pours out so much of her emotions into her tunes that it's impossible not to let them seep into you as you listen. Add onto that her incredible live performance and stage presence - you've got me for life. Her electro-pop, alt-pop sound plays perfectly in music venues, and having seen her already at Doug Fir back in 2016, I can promise you this venue will be perfect for her upcoming September 3rd show.
VÉRITÉ is fresh off her debut album Somewhere in Between, which came out on June 26, and has been received very well by fans all over the country - even the world. The fact that she is going the independent route is awesome as a fan - I'm more than willing and excited to help support her via ticket sales and snatching up merchandise. Along the same lines though, all the promo, A&R, production, writing, etc is all up to her - which is not a small feat. She recently sent out an email to all her fans asking for help with promo in their cities. If you email VERITEemail@gmail.com you can have her mail you some posters to tag your local telephone poles prior to her show in your city - and she'll even hold a signed poster for you at the merch table for after the show - a win win if you ask me!
