Rave is the recording alias of Rotterdam based singer, guitarist and songwriter Vera Jessen Juhrend.
Vera’s creative output relies strongly on her intuitive sense of melody and drive to create highly personal music. Her voice is striking, drawing the listener in. Sometimes intimate, with warmth and melancholy, sometimes piercing through a broad range of registers, but never lacking in depth and expression.
Vera has recorded two albums as a solo artist: “Leave a Line” (2009) and “Bubbles & Bones” (2011), and two albums with her duo “Sommerhus”, the collaboration with bassist, singer, composer, and husband, Peter Jessen: “Sommerhus” (2013) and “Is there such a thing as too much love?” (2016).
With Sommerhus Vera has performed in living rooms and small venues around the Netherlands, and Dutch music and theatre festivals such as The Rotterdamse Operadagen and Oerol, and abroad with performances in Iceland, South Africa, Greece and Germany.
