Vera Jónás is a hard-working, extremely determined singer-songwriter-guitarist. 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 2016, she and her band was also entered by A38 Ship to play at Liveurope Showcase in Warsaw, in October.

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 Jónás Vera Experiment in 2011, released an LP (GAME) and an EP (WANTED), and the second album is due April 2016 through Launching Gagarin Records & Management. 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.
