At age 24, Veronica Swift is now being recognized around the country as one of the top young jazz singers on the scene. Veronica grew up on tour with her parents, renowned jazz pianist Hod O’Brien and celebrated jazz singer and educator/author Stephanie Nakasian. It was with them where she first appeared at The Jazz Standard, and Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola. Veronica recorded two CDs as a child – one at age 9 with Richie Cole and her father’s rhythm section and her mother, and one at age 13 with saxophonist Harry Allen. In 2018, Veronica began touring with her trio (Emmet Cohen Trio) as well as with the Benny Green Trio and recently toured with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. In addition to performing the Great American Songbook and Bebop and Vocalese classics, Veronica is also a passionate devotee of 20s and 30s music and has sung with Vince Giordano, Terry Waldo, and Drew Nugent.
