About the Artist:
Ms. Vee (Akosua Valyria Lewis) Singer, Musician, Writer, and Comedienne; 2021 Band & 2019 Solo Granite State Blues Challenge Winner & International Blues Challenge Semifinalist: Ms. Vee was born and raised in Forrest City Arkansas. At the age of 10, Ms. Vee began her musical journey as a piano student at Lorenzo's School of Contemporary Music in Forrest City Arkansas. Founded by Lorenzo Smith and Jackie Toney Smith. Quickly realizing her ear for music, Lorenzo added Ms. Vee to his blues/jazz band at just 10 years old. She continued her professional career in music, serving as Minister of Music for several East Arkansas Churches.
Ms. Vee later went on to pursue a solo career in music and later comedy. As a Memphis Tennessee implant, Ms. Vee comedically chronicles her radical cultural transition from Memphis Tennessee to Berlin New Hampshire thru comedy and song. A member of the Granite State Blues Society and known for her soulful blues and edgy & witty comedic timing, Vee is sure to keep you laughing and entertained! A pianist and singer for over 30 years, Vee has opened for artists Fantasia & Yo Gotti and now performs locally in the New England area. She has performed standup comedy at Atlanta's Uptown Comedy Club, The Other Bar Orlando, Bus Boys and Poets Washington DC and Manchester's Madear's.
