Gig Information

Vera Ellen has returned after covid delays and cancellations and re-announced a New Zealand mini-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 July 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), Albert River (A.U.R.A) keys and of course led by Vera on guitar and lead vocals.

It's Your Birthday Tour
Friday 8 July - San Fran, Wellington with supports Linen and Raiden Freeman (DJ set)
Friday 15 July - Whammy, Auckland with support Human Resource

Vera and band will 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.
