Today, independent alt-pop queen VÉRITÉ (AKA Kelsey Byrne) has released the Bunker Studio Sessions, Brooklyn, NY— a live EP produced in collaboration with New York based all female orchestra, Little Kruta.
This new EP includes 5 reworked versions of tracks from VÉRITÉ’s debut album, Somewhere In Between. Inspired by Byrne’s performance with the 20 piece, all female orchestra earlier this year with The Hum Series (a concert series celebrating the artistry of female and non-binary musicians) at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, it was only natural for the project to transition into a recorded product.

“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,” says VÉRITÉ on the collaboration.
