Veda Hille

Veda Hille

Veda Hille was born in Vancouver, Canada  in 1968 and started playing piano at the age of 6. Her family moved around alot while Veda ran around in the woods and streets, practiced piano, used her Junior scientist microscope and thought that maybe she would be a psychiatrist.

First she played classical music. Then came pop and a few years of jazz. There was an ill fated year as an inept lounge musician. Then Veda went to art school studying scuplture, film and performance art. She began to make things and started writing songs in 1990. It became pretty obvious that Veda would not become a psychiatrist.

 Veda released an indie cassette in 92. People liked it and she started playing around town and slowly started the business of touring Canada. In 1995 she released her first album and has released an album every other year since. Veda plays piano and tenor guitar and writes about the natural world, the trickiness of love, the constant threat of tragedy and anything else that amazes her. Veda's latest album "This riot life" was released in 2008 on Ape Records in the UK. She continues to tour and is hauling her family to Berlin for the last months of this year to begin writing her new album
