It’s impossible to be unconcerned with the Swedish up-and-coming artist, songwriter and producer Vera Hotsauce. Just turned 18 she still manages to have an indestructible self-esteem which will only benefit her approaching journey. Vera herself is the first one to agree with this. “Watch Me! I’m going to take over. I’m going to be the best and the greatest”.

Her strong personality shines through with every word, however provocative or honest it may be. That this star who is just waiting to explode also writes and produces music for herself as well as others will help her emerging flames reach the very top. Do be careful to step on her toes, because this girl does not take any shit. Influenced by modern pop and the wave of trap music her songs are filled with attitude, character and a bad-ass vibe.

Now it is clear for Vera that the artist path is right for her, letting her rise as well as being seen and heard in the spotlight just as much as she wants to. After spending time in LA writing with people such as Elliphant and Diplos producer collective, Vera released her debut single “Bottoms Up” on June 15th. One of Sweden’s most respected music-journalists Jan Gradvall described her as – “STAR – Vera Carlbom, 18. The debut single ’Bottoms Up’ is released today and it presents an artist who is overflowing with talent and attitude“.

On November 16th Vera released her self-written mixtape ‘let me show u what love is’ demonstrating that even if her surface comes off as cocky and hard, she has an extremely vulnerable and sensitive heart. With brutally honest lyrics and heart-breaking melodies Vera shows her versatility as an artist and a songwriter. Her own words about the mixtape: “The let me show you what love is mixtape is probably the most personal material I’ve ever written. It’s about a person that means very much to me that left a long time ago. This is not a celebration to him, this is not a statement that I need him in my life, this is something relatable for every fucking kid in this world that got deselected by a parent. I wanna tell all these kids with broken hearts that you gotta learn to fix yourself and that I know what you’re going through. I also wanna tell my story. Because there are a lot of people that see me as very hard and cocky, but I also have a very vulnerable heart. And I have a really crappy past, which made me into who I am today.
