Vérité's moody electro-pop is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Kelsey Byrne. After scoring her first viral hit with 2014's "Strange Enough," she self-released three EPs -- Echo, Sentiment, and Living -- before her 2016 cover of the 1975's "Somebody Else" became a massive streaming favorite, racking up over 100 million plays into the next decade. Her official debut Somewhere in Between landed in 2017; she followed with the contemplative sophomore LP New Skin in 2019. She continued into the 2020s with New Limbs (Vol. 1) and multiple collaborations. Arriving in 2023, her third set Love You Forever featured more of her dreamy, beat-driven reflections. Growing up in New York's Orange County, Byrne listened to '90s alt-rock stars such as Nirvana, Green Day, the Breeders, and the Cranberries, and learned piano at an early age; she began performing live with her rock musician father while still in grade school and formed an all-girl punk covers band in middle school. She started writing her own songs at age 16, and graduated from SUNY Purchase with a Bachelor of Arts in studio composition. After graduation, she began making music as Vérité with drummer/producer Elliot Jacobson while working full-time as a waitress at the Times Square Applebee's. Byrne released the track "Heartbeat" on YouTube in 2014, and the project's social media following grew dramatically with that July's "Strange Enough," which reached number one on Hype Machine. Another single, "Weekend," arrived that August and also appeared on the Echo EP, which was released that October. In 2015, the singles "Wasteland" and "Colors" -- which was produced by MS MR's Zach Nicita -- preceded the June release of the Sentiment EP. On 2016's single "Underdressed" and Living EP, Byrne pushed Vérité's boundaries, working with producers including Stefan Graslund, Tim Anderson, and Peter Thomas. Later that year, Byrne's cover of the 1975's "Somebody Else" became another viral hit. Early in 2017, she collaborated with Phantoms on the song "Just a Feeling," while the "Phase Me Out" single appeared in advance of Vérité's debut album, Somewhere in Between, which was released that June via Kobalt Music. January 2018 saw Vérité release a cover of the Sufjan Stevens ballad "John My Beloved." The following month, she issued an EP of remixed tracks from Somewhere in Between. In 2019, she returned with new material starting with the single "Gone" in May, which wound up on her sophomore effort New Skin. Two years later, she released the EP New Limbs (Vol. 1). She also collaborated with the likes of Jax Anderson ("Bigger Picture"), Showtek ("Pour It Down"), Pussy Riot ("Laugh It Off"), and Portair ("Above the Salt"). Her third full-length Love You Forever arrived in February 2023, featuring contemplative singles "Are We Done Yet?" and "Cry Cry Cry," which showcased her familiar blend of atmospheric production and programmed beats.
