Your Vocal Guide Veronica Start
Veronica Start is a holistic vocal coach specializing in beginner-level pop singing. Veronica offers virtual coaching and an online program called Sing with Soul in Seven Weeks providing the psycho-spiritual foundations of singing at all levels.
Veronica lives in Vancouver, BC, and is a member of the Driftpile Cree Nation in Alberta. She offers a unique & insightful experiential perspective as an intergenerational residential school (trauma) survivor. These personal issues propelled her studies in psychology, trauma, and esoteric concepts in order to advance her life and her vocal career.
In 2006 Veronica released her debut EP, Star Mixes, featuring the track "You're a Star." This indie single achieved #11 in the UK's Music Week pop charts, becoming a dance floor hit in Scotland. Later that year she recorded a reworked version of Kate Bush's “Running Up That Hill” with producer Robbie Bronnimann aka Supersaw. And in 2007 she released a single called “Unrequited.” Between the three she's received international airplay and garnered support from popular radio and club DJs like Sasha, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, and Graham Gold. Her music has also been featured on the Ministry of Sound, Kiss100 & Galaxy FM in the UK, and BPM in the USA.
In addition, Veronica supported her artistry as a self-taught executive assistant for senior leaders in London, UK & major cities across Canada where she gleaned valuable people skills and strategic management expertise. Veronica's extensive experience in the sectors of entertainment, media, government, and finance have afforded her the structure and methodology to deliver an impressive heart-centered program with her trademark humor and no-nonsense style.
"I completely understand what it feels like to be shut down, feeling disempowered to sing or perform in public; and my goal is to help you understand that with the right level of knowledge and encouragement, you CAN sing with SOUL. You deserve to discover your own true, authentic voice!"
