On "You Ain't Unlucky," Veronica Lewis Proves Luck's Got Nothin' to Do With It

As we move into a new year and a new season, HPPR continues to get a lot of new music. One of these emerging artists, Veronica Lewis, joined me for a conversation about her new album, You Ain't Unlucky. This 17-year old boogie-woogie piano player and songwriter blasted to #2 on the Billboard Blues Album Sales Chart the first week of March, which is quite an accomplishment for an artist so young. Imagine a mash-up of Katie Webster and Freddie Mercury, with a little Jerry Lee Lewis in the mix. Bam! That's the kind of sound you can expect from Veronica Lewis.

On the behalf of HPPR, we would like to thank Veronica for sharing her time with our listeners! Definitely check out her videofor the title track.) For more information regarding Veronica and her music, visit her website here. To listen to the full interview, please click the link below.
