Celia Pavey, known in muso circles under the moniker Vera Blue, is a Sydney-based singer-songwriter that managed to transition from reality show credit, i.e. via an interpretation of Simon and Garfunkel’s Scarborough Fair, and reinvent herself as somewhat of a darling indie act.
Her melodic folk-inspired songwriting is laced with electronica, which creates the foundation on which own stage persona lays down her impressive vocal range. Combining melancholic, gentle and fiery components to a mélange of her own, she had the audience swaying along in a trance-like state from the get go.
Being a multi-instrumentalist, Vera Blue accompanied herself demonstrating her versatility and musical prowess. She has come a long way from the glittery mainstream realm of a reality show to creating her own mesmerizing sound, which is based on her love for sultry electronica and folk music, infused with her take on lost love and the freedom of singledom.
An artist that has successfully reinvented and found herself, full-heartedly embracing a new sound and distinct identity – at times fiery, at others gentle, yet never contrived – that is on her way to conquer bigger stages.
