Having already sold more than 250,000 albums in Spain, Veronica Romeo has broadened her horizons and is now looking to seduce the American market with her Spanish enchantment. Her upcoming album has been produced by Grammy winners Rodolfo Castillo (Santana, Ricky Martin) and Iker Gastaminza (Shakira). She is available for record, management and publishing deals.
Singer and songwriter, Veronica Romeo was born in Alicante in Spain, but is now living in the US. She is described as an unshakeable, unstoppable whirlwind of energy, ferociously ambitious and a great fighter. Needless to say, she is not afraid of challenges. She is guided by her heart and by keeping both feet on the ground.
For Veronica, the relationship with her fans is tremendously important. “They keep me going - they inspire me,” she says. “I do all I can to keep in close touch with the fans who support my music, whether it be via my shows or through the Internet. The energy I get from them is extraordinary”. Her first album ‘La Fuerza Del Sol’, released in the year 2002, sold more than 200,000 copies. Her second, ‘Lluvia’, which appeared two years later, sold over 80,000.
The last two years have seen Veronica grow up a lot. In 2005, she was in London studying drama, and taking dancing lessons. Now she has her own record label called VK48 Music. Her third album ‘Serotonina’ received the Download Platinum Award by MSN Messenger. As well as multi-platinum record sales in Spain, Veronica is also the winner of the Golden Minute in Spain where 15 Million viewers tuned in to watch her.
Veronica has written all the lyrics for the songs on her upcoming 4th album. She was also deeply involved in every aspect of the album’s creation, from singing all of the backing vocals to overseeing the treatment of the instruments, as well as their recording.
Produced by Grammy winner and multi-platinum Rodolfo Castillo (Santana, Bacilos, Chayanne, Julio Iglesias, Paulina Rubio, Ricky Martin), as well as four time Grammy award winner and multi-platinum Iker Gastaminza (Shakira’ ‘Oral Fixation’, Chayanne, Olga Tañon, Bacilos, Ricky Martin), Dan Warner (Madonna, Rihanna, Timbaland, Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberland, Mika, Shakira) and Lee Levin (Shakira, Barbra Streisand, Cristina Aguilera, Pink, Julio Iglesias), the new album is a bravura effort with a fresh and a youthful spirit. “I’m basically just a girl who likes writing, who likes rocking out and who wants music to be a part of my life forever. For me this an unexpected road trip, a family vacation, a reunion with my friends, a birthday party and a night on the town, all in one”.
"It's rare to find a band as young as [Maroon 5] were who play drums and guitars but aren't a stereotypical rock band. My thought was their music was advanced for its time, but when the album came out it would be where music was going. Sure enough ..." Interview with Ben Berkman, EVP at A&M/Octone for Maroon 5
