INTERVIEW: Veronica Cooper

Hi Veronica, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

I am absolutely amazing.  Feeling blessed and at my best!

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Where’s Vee”?

Where’s Vee is the 1st song off of my mixtape which is also called Where’s Vee.  I wanted the 1st song on the mixtape to kinda be fun and playful and be a mini step into getting to know me.  I think it starts the mixtape off perfectly!

Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?

During recording, I started getting distracted easy so I deleted all social media for over 2 months. At the beginning of the song you hear one of my friend’s voicemail trying to figure out where am I.  Apparently, people been asking about me and trying to figure out where I disappeared off to.  The song just kinda came up while in the studio and I was like okay thats it!

How was the filming process and experience behind the video?

The music video process was very fun to do. While listening to the song and coming up with the video idea. I knew I wanted to do something fun yet different from other Vegas Artist. So I created this whole 1 take idea with props and etc.  Unfortunately, the director didn’t capture the vision how I wanted it but that’s a story I won’t even go down. Just know I won’t ever repeat the same mistake twice.  Check out the Behind the Scenes Video! It’s absolutely hilarious.

Why naming the album after this track in particular?

Well actually the track was named after the Mixtape! The voicemail from my friend wondering where I was is how the project got its name.

How was the recording and writing process?

Recording this mixtape took about a year. A lot of songs weren’t included because of the genre and overall feel of them was different. I was going thru a lot emotional and spiritually and I think as I kept recording the songs got more and more deep. I didn’t want this project to be a bunch of slow, sad, and angry songs. Don’t worry, I will release them when the time it right.

What role does LA play in your music?

Moving to LA was a way to show others that this wasn’t just a hobby or a something to do on the side. Los Angeles has already introduced me to people I wouldn’t have had the chance to meet back home in Vegas. I am also surrounded by tons of creative souls all working towards a common goal which is motivating for me. There is so much opportunity, you just have to seize it!

Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?

No, it’s pretty much the same. I like to agree on a beat or create one from scratch. Then sit down and vibe it out till we get the a hook or bridge down and boom just like that we got magic!

As you find more and more success – does that put any pressure on you as an artist?

Yes and No. Yes because I have to learn and dabble more on the business end which can be overwhelming when you don’t have a team of people.  Yet, I also am learning how to cut business off so I can focus on my writing and performances.  It’s really is just  hit and miss and growing with my fans. They understand I’m not perfect.

What aspect of your life did you get to explore on this record?

On the mixtape Where’s Vee, I was able to speak about my sexuality and my constant battle with not fitting in. I made a few tracks about my city of sin and how we turn up. I even took a moment out to talk about toxic relationships and how we can’t seem to leave them.   Most of the tracks came from the heart while others came from the liquor!

Any plans to hit the road?

Yes, I am currently setting up a mini 10 city tour for the fall with possible announcement dates in late July!

What else is happening next in Veronica Cooper’s world?

I just recently was informed that I won a Spiral Music Award in Philly. So I am preparing to fly out there to accept my award! I also am starting up a new Youtube Series with my fellow music artist partner and crime Tyler Tylier which should be ready to upload in July.
