Born in Ukraine, Veronika Bell and her family moved to New Zealand to seek refuge after The Chernobyl Disaster. Veronika was introduced to the beauty of classical music from an early age; studying the piano (Royal Schools ABRSM) and going to ballet school as well as finishing a drama programme all before the age of 12. Finding a niche within the performing arts gave Veronika a sense of purpose
Veronika obtained a Bachelor of Music (Contemporary Performance Voice) and a Diploma for Graduates in Music (Jazz) in 2016 from The University of Otago. She became a resident vocalist of The Dunedin City Jazz Orchestra and began releasing her own music.
These days, Veronika is a freelancing singer songwriter, and she works as a recording artist and teacher. She joined the Kids Up Front team in 2019.
