From the streets of the southeast side of the Motor City emerges an insightful Writer and compelling Spoken Word Performance Artist.

The music ranges from funky jazz to contemporary hip-hop, tailored to the spoken word theme.

At times, you''ll want to jump up & dance; other times, you''ll just relax and listen, and on some tracks, you''ll want to sing along with the infectious groove. Veronica''s lyrical prowess is hauntingly evident from track to track as her diverse writing styles are showcased. Featured on The Asylum Project are seasoned, dynamic musicians (no sampling allowed) and harmonizing vocalists, including versatile lead vocalist, Jeanetta Carr.
