The independent alt-pop artist VÉRITÉ is back with an end of the year gift to her fans and music lovers alike with her EP, Bunker Studios Sessions, Brooklyn, NY. Kelsey Regina Byrne, known professionally as Vérité, is joined by the all-female chamber orchestra, Little Kruta. The collaborative project contains five spellbinding and evocative orchestral arrangements of VÉRITÉ’s fan favorites. The string arrangements are written by cellist Kristine Kruta, the leader of Little Kruta. The remaining members are: violin-Maia Im, Concert Mistress and soloist, Niclole Wright, Alexandra Jenkins, and Madeleine Jansen. On Viola- Tia Allen and Laura Sacks, and on cello- Kristine Kruta and Sasha Onon. Rounding out the date is Adi Meyerson on upright bass, Zach Nicita on drums and Bryan Percivall on electric bass. Bunker Studios Sessions, Brooklyn, NY was inspired by a performance at National Sawdust, Brooklyn for The Hum Series earlier this year – a celebration of female and nonbinary artistry. “I never imagined I’d have the opportunity to work with an orchestra. It’s such a luxury to work in a studio with live musicians, reinterpreting songs that I’ve lived with for so long,” says VÉRITÉ on the collection. “I was introduced to Little Kruta, a crowd funded, NYC based orchestra by chance when I was asked to perform arrangements of my music with a 20 piece, all female orchestra at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY earlier this year. The reaction to the performance and working with such talented, badass women made this EP inevitable. It’s nice to make something beautiful and have it exist in the world. I’m excited to end a chapter with this set of music.”
