Country:United States
Info:David Veira also known as Gauge gives a positive spin on real-life situations, this has gained him both street credibility and industry attention.

Being a native of Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York there is no doubt that his hip-hop roots run deep. His lyrical and rhyming skills were seasoned by his Trinidadian heritage as well as legendary schoolyard battles on his home turf.

Gauge's unique flavor sparked the attention of media such as but not limited to "On Deck Demo Reviews" and "Rap Pages" in addition to a feature in The Source’s Unsigned Hype column.

Open Mic
Noticed at an open mic event by Maestro Fresh Wes, (the legendary Canadian MC) Gauge later toured with him throughout the United States and Canada.

This opportunity led to performances with the Fugees, GangStarr, Wu-Tang Clan, and Coolio. His work ethic and fan base enabled him to attain these achievements without being signed to a major record label.

His stage appearances were preceded by the secular release of "Cranium" (1996), an underground release through Maestro Records that sold over 9000 units. The single’s success included 13 weeks of airplay on Hot 97, in addition to Gauge’s recognition as one of the highest selling underground artist.

Another highlight of his career included a European tour in countries such as Germany, England and Switzerland. He enjoyed even more success through the MTV circuit by performing with Trinidad’s Soca Monarch winner Bunji Garlin at the International Concert in New Orleans and by hosting an episode of "Sucker Free Sunday".

Shamellion Rebellion
Gauge, also a member of the renaissance group Shamellion Rebellion, has performed throughout New York. The Shamellion Rebellion is critically acclaimed for having one of the greatest stage shows in the Tri-State area.

Great loss
On February 16th, 2004 Gauge lost his mother Credo Veiro, who past away due to a fatal car accident. Ten percent of Mental Link Inc's proceeds will be donated to the Credo Veiro Memorial Foundation, a non-proit organisation, which will contribute towards scholarship assistance, medical supplies for hospitals in desperate need, education and assistance for autistic children and other good causes.

His debut album entitled, "December Thirty-First Nineteen Ninety-Nine," is released on the Mental Link, Inc. Label in 2006.
