Vera Ellen has announced a New Zealand tour in support of her knockout of a Flying Nun debut It's Your Birthday.

The Pōneke / Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter takes to the road in February and March 2022 with a full band, namely Ben Lemi (Trinity Roots, French for Rabbits, Bret McKenzie, Glass Vaults – bass), Samuel Austin (A.U.R.A – drums), Audrey May (Sports Royal – guitar), Bella Guarrera (BVs), Callum Lee (Rewind Fields – keys/sax/violin), and of course led by Vera on guitar and lead vocals.

Having finally secured a spot in MIQ, the artist is excited to be back in Aotearoa from LA, and to perform material – including NZ alt-charting single 'YOU!' – from It's Your Birthday live for her home crowd.

In combination, Vera's clear, concise songwriting, and confident yet relaxed vocal presence make the album a classic on entry – earning her a spot in RNZ's Top 20 albums of 2021.

An enigmatic performer, Vera is also a member of LA pop-punk act Girl Friday, and was previously a member of NZ grunge 4-piece Maple Syrup.

NZ fans may have seen her onstage in 2020, opening as Vera Ellen for the likes of Don McGlashan and Reb Fountain, as well as at three sold-out shows with indie darlings, The Beths.

Tickets on sale from Banished Music at 9am Thursday 20 January 2022.
