Vérité is the stage name of a singer-songwriter called Kelsey Byrne who hails from New York. I find this name particularly appropriate, as it means ‘truth’ in French; this young woman’s lyrics are all about truth.
When asked about the meaning of her resounding lyrics, Kelsey answered, ‘people can really ascribe their own meaning, which I kind of encourage.’
Eliza Berman, a writer for The Times, believes that she “writes songs about the human condition: what it’s like to be here, to inhabit your own mind, to try to connect with others.”
