Beyond Veronica banded in the spring of 2002 and have found their niche with a retro, power pop sound and sexy style to boot. Just when pioneering female rock 'n roll rebels such as The Runaways, Blondie and The Avengers seemed to be a thing of the past, front woman Bonnie Veronica took the reins and led her band into a resurgence of what was all but lost in the mainstream. This accomplished five-piece ensemble is decidedly distinctive in every aural arena.
Beyond Veronica’s second full-length album, Hard Times for Dreamers, has been realized and materialized… an edgy, power pop explosion, evolved from the sparking fire of their self-titled debut. Coinciding is the video premier of their first single, The River’s Edge which provides a curious and kaleidoscopic visual conceptualization. The Debut CD is also available at fine record stores nationwide and online at Notlame.com, CD Baby.com, and many other sites!
Performing throughout the west coast in various venues and festivals, Beyond Veronica has also been featured on multiple CD compilations, including Take Refuge in Pleasure: The Songs of Roxy Music Revisited, with their cover of A Really Good Time, available online at Burning Sky Records.
“Really solid and consistently enjoyable straight ahead rock `n roll. Front-woman Bonnie Veronica has a vocal command that sweetens and straight-jackets the melodies in the songs and sweet, but assertive rock `n pop melodies hold it all together with aplomb. Very highly recommended!”
