Biography

The Veronicas are an award winning Australian pop singer/songwriter duo composed of identical twin sisters Lisa Marie Origliassio and Jessica Louise Origliasso (born December 25, 1984 in Brisbane) who are of Italian (Sicilian) descent.

Jessica and Lisa also performed in small parts on various television shows including a recurring role in the short-lived 2001 Australian children's series "Cybergirl", where they portrayed twin sisters: Lisa played the character 'Sapphire', while Jessica appeared as 'Emerald'. On Jessica's 18th birthday she received her first guitar, with this the girls began writing and singing songs. They became "Teal" and began to experiment with different sounds and genres, releasing a song "Baby It's Over", this only received very minor airplay in Brisbane.

Meetings were then arranged with Warner Bros. Records in the USA. Seymour Stein and senior executives recognized that Hayden Bell had indeed discovered and developed a unique musical talent, signing them quickly to a recording contract with Warner/Sire America, for a reported sum of 2 million dollars.

The group was featured prominently in an issue of their namesake Veronica's comic book as a result of their cross-promotion deal with Archie Comics. The issue (#167) featured a card with a code allowing a free download of their single 4ever in MP3 form.

A few months later, Archie and Friends (#100) featured The Archies meeting The Veronicas. Then the next issue of Archie and Friends (#101) also featured The Veronicas, with Archie as their biggest fan.

The Veronicas debut album, entitled The Secret Life of..., was released in Australia on October 17, 2005, entering the ARIA Album charts at the position of #7. Since then it has peaked at #2 and gone 4x Platinum - due to the success of the album, five singles have been released in Australia. 'The Secret Life of...' spent a year in the ARIA album charts without ever leaving the top 40. In September 2006, the album was nominated for 3 ARIA awards including; "Best Pop Release", "Highest Selling Album" and "Best Breakthrough Album". The Veronicas won "Best Pop Release" but lost the other two to other nominees, the girls also performed their 2nd single "Everything I'm Not" on the night.The Veronicas at Kiss 106.1 on November 22, 2005.

The twins also have a fashion line in the making to expand their empire and because of their interest in fashion, which is to be released at Target (Australia) stores on August 25, 2007 in Australia. The range will be called The Veronicas for Target.

On August 8, The Veronicas fashion line was unveiled on the Target website and will go on sale from the 25th, shortly followed by the release of the duo's brand new single "Hook Me Up" from their second album being added to Australian radio on August 27. "Hook Me Up" was produced by Greg Wells, who has produced Mika, Timbaland, and many others.
