Vera Jónás is a hard-working, extremely determined singer-songwriter-guitarist. Her band, Vera Jonas Experiment has been invited to perform two shows at Eurosonic 2017, and opened for Skye and Ross from Morcheeba in Budapest this fall.

While Launching Gagarin Records & Management released the second album of Vera Jonas Experiment in April 2016, Vera received the prestigious Junior Songwriter Award of Artisjus, Hungary’s copyright agency, and she was selected for the second round of MIDEM’s Artist Accelerator program. In May, Vera Jonas Experiment was nominated for the award of Hungary’s Association of Record Labels (Fonogram) in the alternative/indie-rock category. In September, she recorded a session for Sofar Sounds Sessions in Hamburg, during Reeperbahn Festival. Vera sings the main theme of an original HBO series broadcast in Hungary and Spain. In the meantime, the four-piece tours Hungary and the neighboring countries with the latest release.

She graduated from the London Centre of Contemporary Music School in 2012. She was handpicked to the OneBeat program sponsored by the US Department of State, participated in a two-week workshop in Florida, and toured the Eastern Coast of the US.

After commuting between London and Budapest, playing live extensively with bands in both cities, she settled in Budapest and started to build her career from there. She formed Vera Jonas Experiment in 2011, released an LP (GAME) and an EP (WANTED) before this year’s new album, Tiger, Now!. The song, What would they do?! was the original soundtrack of a Hungarian mainstream movie, while her most recent featuring with highly-acclaimed Hungarian producer-songwriter Máriusz Fodor has reached the Top30 of Hungary’s top alternative music radio.

GAME, which brought them two nominations (Best Album, Best Spoken Word Song) at the 13th Independent Music Awards, was released in Japan, where she toured in the spring of 2015. The Experiment plays in Romania regularly. They also played in Austria and Germany, and are frequent guests at Hungary’s top clubs and festivals like Sziget and VOLT.
