The Veronicas was formed in 2004 in Brisbane, Australia. It consists of two twin sisters, Lisa and Jessica Origliasso. Lisa and Jessica were born on Christmas day in 1984. Their parents have an Italian heritage. The sisters were growing up near Albany Creek. The girls have been demonstrating their love for music since childhood. By the time they turned five, the twins had already performed on stage, appeared on television, and worked in local theater plays.
When they were teenagers, the Origliasso sisters formed a duo called Lisa & Jessica. They even managed to record three albums, which didn’t earn any popularity. Then the young women decided to try their acting skills and appeared in a TV series, Cybergirl, where they played villains. In 2003, the sisters and their two friends established a group called The Teal, which released a fairly successful single “Baby It’s Over’.
In 2004, the band fell apart. However, the girls suddenly found support from a local label Excalibur, which helped them sign a contract with a Sidney label Engine Room. The managers of Engine Room believed in the bright future of the group and sent the girls overseas to the USA. Several American labels contested for the right to work with The Veronicas. Eventually, they signed a contract with Warner Bros Music Group.
