Poet, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Danielle Aykroyd is a one-woman machine of musicianship, known onstage as Vera Sola. Aykroyd’s first chapter saw her composing pieces for performance art, theater productions and film scores and began her solo career shying away from the spotlight in dimly lit venues. A spell of confidence befell Aykroyd last year, who added an orchestral backing band to her live shows, and much to the joy of her growing fanbase, Vera Sola was born.
Aykroyd maintained complete control over her vision for her debut full-length Shades, ten songs that take Aykroyd’s life experience and package it into a veritable Vera Sola introduction. You can don Shades right now with a free download of one of the record’s lead singles, “The Colony“!
