Within a month, a newly energized Veronica's Veil was touring all over the southeastern United States and gaining immediate popularity. Released later in 2006, Vv's debut EP Middle Of Nowhere created quite a buzz. Written entirely by Winter, the EP exposed his angst-ridden lyrics and energetic instrumentation and displayed Jackson's solid vocal ability. While this earlier music has been described by the Kings of A&R as "the direction Evanescence should have gone," their sound has since evolved into a category all of its own. Winter's love of electronic instruments combined with Jackson's organic, un-autotuned vocals makes for a high-powered yet alluring listen. Despite the temptation to follow the ''existing band model'' and sign with a record company, Winter and Jackson decided to throw that idea away and do something unheard of: do it all themselves. So, Veronica's Veil hopped off the touring map in 2007 and began co-writing their sophomore album Enduring Winter.
In June 2008, after months of non-stop songwriting, the duo began recording in their home studio. Enduring Winter is a collection of songs written, performed, engineered, produced, mixed, and mastered solely by Winter and Jackson. A 5 song mp3 EP of Enduring Winter, including the first single OTHER SIDE, is available now for streaming and purchase at www.veronicasveil.info. The full length album will be released in Summer 2009. *There is another band that utilized the name, Veronica's Veil. It hailed from San Antonio, Texas. Their music was a blend of alternative rock, goth rock with a hint of deathrock. They were fronted by Veronica Campbell, whose evocative lyrics and stunning vocals ushered a new standard to the burgeoning San Antonio music scene.
Former Berlin Black member, Shawn Terry brought his accomplished guitar work to the group, and with his deathrock background, a darker element to the band's sound. They were rounded out by J.G. on bass and Nick Tellez on drums. Veronica's Veil recorded several demos but only officially released a cover of Rozz Williams', "Love Lies" on the compilation, "The Tongue Achieves The Dialect".
Veronica's Veil broke-up shortly after. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
