Biography

Brisbane, Australia (2004 – present)

The Veronicas is a band consisting of identical twin sisters Jessica Louise Origliasso and Lisa Marie Origliasso (born December 25, 1984 in Brisbane, Australia). Speaking with Songfacts in a 2011 interview, Jess Origliasso explained that in 2001 she and her sister moved to Los Angeles, California, United States: “We call it our temporary home. We’re children of the universe, our real home is definitely Australia. We both have homes back in Australia. But as far as where we’ve spent the majority of our growing-up time for the last 7 years, it’s been Los Angeles.”

Contrary to popular belief, the band name in fact did not come from a character in Archie Comics. In an interview with MTV, the sisters explicitly stated this about the band name:
“The name is something we thought about for a long time, and we wanted it to be a girl’s name, but we didn’t want it to be ‘the Jesses. We were very conscious of not wanting to make it a twin thing, because we think that’s really tacky. So one day we saw the movie ‘Heathers,’ and there’s a line where one girl asks, ‘Are you a Heather?’ and Winona Ryder’s character answers, ‘No, I’m a Veronica,’ and so we went with that, because she was this kind of cool, unique chick with an attitude.”

Born to Italian (Sicilian) parents on Christmas Day 1984, they grew up in Albany Creek, (northwest of Brisbane, Australia) where they attended Ferny Grove State High School and Wavell State High School. At an early age the girls expressed interest in performing; they participated with small local papers in shows on television, radio and horses.
