Hello Vera - MusicNSW

Having just relocated from Lismore Hello Vera are now a Sydney based band obsessed with pop. They have been working hard over the past year, converting bedrooms into makeshift studios to record a chunk of demos which will be whittled down and turned into “some sort” of an EP at “some time” this year.

What was the first band you saw live?
The Wiggles at Wangi Wangi RSL.

What’d you learn from them?
Backing tracks are a big mistake.

Got any pre-gig rituals?
Nothing really, we once tried fake laughing to calm our nerves.

What do you think the most important issue facing artists in NSW is?
Lack of small to medium sized venues to play original music in, especially if you’re a local artist in a regional area.

If you weren’t a musician, what do you reckon you’d be doing?
Jack would be a baker, and Charmian would be a nurse.
