Amy Lee and Veridia‘s Deena Jakoub channel personal loss and grief into moving duet
Nashville-based pop/rock/electronic band Veridia have released a candid new performance clip for “I’ll Never Be Ready” off their latest album The Beast You Feed. The track features Amy Lee on piano and backing vocals, and its accompanying video captures the Evanescence frontwoman playing the song with Veridia for the first time at the band’s album release party at Nashville’s Analog.
Veridia frontwoman Deena Jakoub wrote “I’ll Never Be Ready” as her dad was dying from renal disease, and when she reached out to Lee to guest on the song, it resonated strongly with the Evanescence bandleader, who had recently lost her brother. Both singers talk about their experiences with loss and how the song and the collaboration helped them to heal in the video.
“It felt like we were divinely brought together to walk through and perform through those deep emotions,” Jakoub told Alternative Press. “She played the song of my soul that I could not find the words to sing.”
“There are things in this world that are cruel and unfair, and there are also things in this world that are impossibly beautiful,” Lee added. “Reaching out and finding someone else in the darkness lights up the one thing that lives forever. Love. And to quote the words that hold my heart, ‘I’ll never forget how much I was loved.'”
