Biography

Versa is a name of at least four acts:

[1] A band formed in 2007 by Matt Dolmage, Kevin Grady, Hollas Longton, Ben Rancourt, Anthony Theocharis, and Janelle Wrona. The band released their self-titled debut in 2007, and began to develop a following around Victoria. Janelle left Versa at the end of 2008 to pursue other interests, and since then the band moved to a core/satellite structure.

Core members Matt, Ben, and Anthony continue to write, record and perform full time as Versa. Hollas continues to contribute material to the group while he pursues a Masters in Composition at the Conservatory of Music in The Hague, Holland, while Kevin continues to contribute part-time to the band as he pursues a career as an orchestral percussionist. Other satellite members include John Russell and Liam McKeracher on drums and Nick Huston on keyboards and trombone. Versa also receives live and studio contributions from Laine Longton (cello), Ajay Bhattacharyya (drums), Scott Lougheed (drums/sound), and Colin McTaggart (guitar).

Versa’s consistent core and fluctuating supporting band mean our powerful live shows are never the same, as songs undergo (sometimes dramatic) reinterpretations to suit the instruments available.
