International band Veronneau returns to An die Musik Live in Baltimore on January 26. Music lovers will enjoy the tunes from Veronneaus two recent albums that landed them on radio charts and won them fans and airplay around the world.
Last year Veronneau released the Jazz Samba Project, featuring samba and bossa nova with creative new arrangements. Praised by critics around the globe, the new album charted its first week out and rose to the top ten in 23 North American cities.
In 2011, the groups first album Joie de Vivre - Joy of Living experienced similar success. The CD features bossa nova, gypsy jazz and classics from the USA, Brazil, Mexico, France and Great Britain. Acoustic guitars and tasteful percussion frame the vocals of Lynn Véronneau, who sings in several languages.
Besides French-Canadian vocalist Lynn Véronneau, the core band includes British guitarist Ken Avis (former vocalist with the renowned Otis Grand blues band), American drummer Pete Walby and Brazilian trained guitarist and composer David Rosenblatt who contributed popular originals to both albums. Formed three years ago in Northern Virginia, Veronneau has performed in Europe and North America. Their website sees visitors from over 100 countries.
