Born in 1991, Austria-born Berklee Graduate Veronika Morscher is a singer songwriter, vocalist and voice tutor. Her love of Brazilian music, Indian music, R&B, gospel music, acapella vocal music, as well as free improvisation and pop music has taken her on a diverse musical journey. Her Austrian roots were never neglected and she continues to play with musicians in Austria, Germany and Switzerland whenever she has the chance. In her last year in college in the US, Veronika discovered her passion for songwriting. Having been introduced to Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, her love for lyric writing was ignited. Through her lyrics, Veronika has found a way to express themes and thoughts that may not always have room in the everyday life and also finds answers to questions through her songs. For her, the magic and passion is in the process of writing, in the hours she spends at the piano, with her guitar or in a cafe piecing her lyrical phrases and musical ideas together until everything faces in one direction.
Veronika will be assisting Liane Carroll in voice workshops and leading an ensemble throughout Sligo Jazz 2015. Look out for her on the jazz trail too, who knows where she will appear during the week!
