Singer, songwriter, dancer, model, and actress Veronika "V" Bozeman made a stunning debut in the spring of 2011, not as solo artist, but as the powerful female vocalist who traded verses with Interscope recording artist Timothy Bloom in his soulful breakout ballad, "Til the End of Time," from his 2011 EP, The Budding Rose. V co-wrote the hugely popular duet, which captured the attention of the blogosphere when she and Bloom boldly showcased their striking beauty and flawless physiques by appearing nude together in the sensual music video for the song, which became an Internet sensation. That's when everyone started asking, "Who's that girl, V?"
Born and raised in South Central, Los Angeles, V is the youngest of five children. Raised primarily by her Mother and maternal Grandmother, V's musical spirit was apparent even when she was an infant, as she would wake each morning humming inside her crib.
A gospel-trained singer who grew up in the church, V performed her first solo, "This Little Light of Mine," at age five, and the congregation's overwhelmingly enthusiastic reception sealed her family's belief that V would someday be a star.
As a teen, V joined The Crenshaw Elite Choir and traveled throughout Europe and Canada, performing songs in English and French. In 1999, V returned to the States with her feet planted firmly in the soil of her gift of music, determined to focus solely on her career. To help support herself, she made the rounds on the talent show circuit in Los Angeles, twice winning the top prize at the Steve Harvey Talent Show.
In an effort to advance her career, V left Los Angeles in 2006 and relocated to Atlanta, where she joined a succession of short-lived R&B girl groups, including one in which she sang lead that caught the attention of renowned singer-songwriter-producer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. In 2008, Edmonds signed the group to his SodaPop Entertainment label and promptly sent them to Los Angeles to start working in the studio; a year later, the group disbanded without releasing an album and V found herself back at square one.
Rather than brood over this setback, V developed a working relationship with top Atlanta producer Polow Da Don, who enlisted her to do vocal production for some of the hottest names in music, including Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Monica, Lloyd, Dirty Money, El DeBarge, and Patti LaBelle, among many others. After paying her dues behind the scenes, V became poised to enter the spotlight when she reconnected with her musical soulmate, Timothy Bloom, an old friend from Atlanta who had recently inked a deal with Interscope.
Following the breakout success of "'Til the End of Time," V is eager to introduce the world to a new sound all her own, which she describes as Universal Soul Music! "Everybody has a soul," says V. "I just want to touch them." For more, visit ThatGirlV.com.
