For the past decade Veivers has been developing a very personal and clearly identifiable compositional style. His passion for both the classical and flamenco worlds of music, song, and dance have resulted in compositions that stylistically draw inspiration from greats as diverse as Manolo Sanlucar, Steve Reich, and Manuel de Falla while retaining a clearly individual lilt. Deeply rhythmical, harmonically adventurous, and unashamedly lyrical, the architecture of Veivers' compositions reflects his ability to seamlessly join the rigorous research of a topic with the emotive goal and direction of a lyric or melody. Departures is a reflection on the people, places, and projects that have been pivotal in Veivers’ development as a musician and composer over the past 20 years.

Veivers is a musician, teacher, director and composer of the highest calibre - touring, recording, composing, and arranging extensively for solo projects, his groups Flamenco Fire and The Saruzu Quartet as well as for great Australian artistic institutions such as The Sydney Theatre Company and Woodford Folk Festival. He was also recently engaged to compose for the Sunshine Coast’s premiere green arts event – Floating Land – with his work “Stillness and the Moving” recorded for promotional ads and performed by a community based orchestra at the opening and closing ceremonies.
