Bio & CV
V.C.R, born Veronica Camille Ratliff, is a violinist and recording artist that uses amalgamations of nostalgic sounds to compose audio-visual masterpieces for her listeners. Born into a musical family, she was classically trained in violin and gospel choir beginning at age five. V.C.R uses her eclectic musical background to carefully craft songs that are not only healing and one-of-kind but direct tributes to her favorite singers and composers such as Minnie Riperton, JDilla, Chaka Khan, and Tchaikovsky.
The hybridization of her direct influences, gospel, soul, funk, and classical music combine to birth her own genre called "Cosmic Soul". Her dreamy movie-like approach to her projects takes the listener on a journey through her thoughts transporting them to their own universe.
V.C.R's new single "Butter" is the snack her fans have been craving. "Butter" was written and produced by V.C.R as an form of escapism. This dreamy, creamy ode to resiliency and hope is only an echo of her first single "Lilli Lotus" which was a celebration of black alchemy and innovation. During these peculiar and uncertain times, its imperative that she mirrored it in her art. "Butter" is the perfect precursor to her upcoming debut EP which is sure to take her brave voyagers on a wild ride.
