As classic as a "girl meets boy" in a movie tale, Suzanne Veronica and

​Michael Passaro literally bumped into each other on a street corner one

hot afternoon in South Philadelphia. After discussing music, exchanging

cards and a few phone calls later, the start of something amazing was

happening - the birth of the Suzanne Veronica & Michael Passaro originals.

That was in 1997. Now, nearly 20 years later, Suzanne & Michael have

​released seven albums independently, performed at some of the most acclaimed venues in and around Philadelphia and even had A-list artists perform on their latest album "7 Tales Of Wonder", including Fran Smith, Jr. and David Uosikkinen from The Hooters. It is a CD that they agree is their best work to date.

"Suzanne and I really took a different direction with our latest album",

said Passaro. "With Steve Butler helping to produce it and Fran and Dave performing with us, it just has this raw energy that exudes from each of the artists".

Veronica believes strongly in emitting energy from her music and hopes

that fans feel the emotion that she and Passaro put into every song they record.

​"The songs are not written based upon mood", Veronica explains. "I

don't set out to write a sad song or a more upbeat song. I just write what I feel, or hear for that matter :) then of course it's never a song until the lyrics are completed and if it is meant to be? They always speak to me :)

While the duo has been hard at work releasing albums over the years,

their stage show is where they really shine. Describing their sound as

"eclectic with a rock and pop style".

"Mike was more into the harder rock influence but our common passion

has molded into a collaboration that was a creation entirely original", Mike's multi instrumental talents & producing has always created such Beautiful Noise :) ...said Veronica.

A chance meeting that led to a lifetime of music, success and, most

importantly, friendship for nearly 20 years? It almost seems impossible

in this industry. But as Bob Dylan once said all it takes is "A Simple

Twist of Fate". 

"I believe always that everything happens for a reason".- Suzanne Veronica
