Interview with Verona Rose

Hello everyone, today we have an interview with the incredibly talented Verona Rose for you. Her latest single Overthinking is out now and I love it. I was lucky enough to be able to ask Verona Rose some questions about how she started writing music and about Overthinking. Please go and listen to the song, follow and support Verona Rose in her musical journey as I am really looking forward to what’s coming next. I will leave all the links at the end of the post.

How would you describe your sound to the readers?

My sound doesn’t fit in a box! I purposely try not to stick to one genre, but my sound right now is heavily pop and indie influenced.

Who would you say are your biggest influences musically?

Some of my biggest influences would be Jon Bellion, The Japanese House, and Sara Bareilles. I love how each of them have individual sounds and use that to either tell a story or sonically paint a picture for us as the listeners.

How did you get started writing your own songs?

I’ve been writing music ever since I could remember. I’m thankful to have a supportive family who’s allowed me dive deep into music at such a young age, which had me writing some of my first songs at 6 years old. I love the idea of telling stories and writing from other perspectives, and that along with my own personal experiences have fuelled many of my songs. I haven’t stopped writing since then, and don’t plan on it in the future.

Your latest single 'Overthinking' is great, I absolutely love the song. How did writing this song come about?

Thank you very much! I knew writing a song about how I overthink could be challenging, considering I knew I’d overthink it the entire jump. This song started with a piano voice memo I recorded in my college practice room, and took on a life of its own as I added lyrics and other elements into it. Having to tell myself not to overthink it many MANY times throughout the whole production! It started with me just taking a breath, finding a neat chord progression, and seeing where it went from there.

Lyrically I think the song is something a lot of us can relate to, was this a conscious choice or were you writing how you felt at the time? (I think the song is written really well by the way.)

Thank you again! That’s deeply appreciated. It was for sure a conscious choice, along with having this feeling for so long. This is exactly how I overthink. Externally I’m very relaxed and fun, like the instrumental of the song. Internally, a million thoughts are running through my head one after the other, much like the lyrics share. My hope is that all my over-thinkers out there are able to connect to how I personally overthink

What are you missing the most at the moment due to the pandemic?

People. I absolutely miss being around people, meeting others, collaborating and sharing with others. Being able to do that more often is definitely something I’m looking forward to in the future!

Has the pandemic changed how you write songs in any way? Are there any ways you are staying creative at the moment?

Oddly enough when the pandemic hit, I hit the weirdest writing roadblock. Right when I had a lot of time to sit and write new music. Over time, as I adjusted to the quarantine, I was able to sit and experiment with new sounds and ideas that opened up the door many different avenues for upcoming projects.

What can we expect to hear from you next?

I’m working on multiple projects with a vast range of incredible and talented humans that I’m lucky to be creating with! Keep an ear out for some new singles that range out into different genres that you’ve never heard from me before. Super stoked to share them with you and to hear how you may connect with them! Thank you again for interviewing me!

Thank you so much to Verona Rose for taking time to answer these questions, it is greatly appreciated. I find it really rewarding for me to be able to talk to all of these artists whose music I connect with.

Please go and listen to ‘Overthinking’ you definitely won’t regret it; it’s been in my ears all week and will be making some of my playlists for sure.
