Biography of Veronneau

Since their 2010 launch, international acoustic band Veronneau has delighted audiences in the UK, Europe North America with their world jazz repertoire. Two recent albums landed them high on radio and Internet listening charts and won fans from over 100 countries.

French Canadian vocalist Lynn Veronneau lights up the stage and takes no prisoners with her engaging presence and moving interpretations. The driving acoustic guitars of Ken Avis (UK) with David Rosenblatt (USA), and the tasteful percussion of Pete Walby frame her voice and provide the rhythmic energy that propels each set from samba and bossa nova to gypsy jazz and swing.




These world traveled musicians delight audiences in festivals, concert halls and intimate jazz clubs alike. They’ve packed Washington DC's prestigious Kennedy Center, and smaller clubs like the UK's Abattoir Jazz club; they've enthralled cabaret fans at Germano’s in Baltimore’s Little Italy, and enchanted listeners at the UK's Beatherder festival. In 2011 the band performed live on BBC radio and Radio Canada during their national tours.

Joie de Vivre – Joy of Living
The band’s 2011 CD was an immediate hit, shooting to the top ten of Jazz Week’s world music chart in less than a month and becoming a favorite of jazz DJs and music fans from many countries. Entitled Joie de Vivre (Joy of Living), the album features tunes collected in their world travels, sung expertly in three languages.

Canadian music critic Jordan Richardson called Veronneau’s first album “a cultured compendium of musical styles surrounding an astonishing voice.” The album rose to No. 9 in the World Music category of the Jazzweek radio charts, hit the top ten of jazz and world music stations in many countries, and found huge success with Internet listeners.

Jazz Samba Project
The group released their second album in 2012, after a year of research. The response was overwhelming. Featuring samba and bossa nova, the new album charted its first week out. It was unveiled as part of the Golden Anniversary of the Getz/Byrd recording Jazz Samba – the 1962 recording that popularized Brazilian music around the globe. Highlights include the classic samba “E Luxo So,” with lyrics sung in Portuguese, and a bossa nova arrangement of Bob Marley’s “Waiting in Vain.”

Jazz Samba Project lingered for months in the top half of the US jazz charts and reached the top ten of jazz stations from Toronto to San Diego, New Orleans to Brooklyn. Favorable reviews continue to pour in from around the globe.
