Biography

VersaEmerge, now VERSA, was formed by former drummer Anthony Martone and guitarist/vocalist Blake Harnage back when both members were in high school. Although the duo instantly experienced regional success selling out their first ever gig and gaining critical acclaim in their local music scene, it wasn’t until the band solidified their line-up—which currently includes guitarist Harnage and vocalist Sierra Kusterbeck—that things really started happening for this dedicated group of young adults.

“When Sierra first tried out for the band we didn’t know what to expect,” Harnage explains, adding that the then sixteen-year-old female vocalist lied about her age in order to land an audition. “She’s always been amazingly talented, but now she’s learning how to use that talent to its full potential.”

At the age most of us would be concerned with sneaking into R-rated movies, VersaEmerge were busy crafting an EP of original material called Perceptions that attracted the attention of Fueled By Ramen Records. In addition to listening to everything from Björk to Thrice during their free time, the band have toured with artists in nearly every genre and taken a little bit from each of these varied experiences in order to come up with something completely unique and unprecedented when it comes to their own music.

“We’ve gone on tour with everyone from dance-pop to metal bands,” Harnage explains with a laugh. “I guess people seem to think that we can play with pretty much anyone.”

    Tarjever, не, я в последнее время просто в инглише не практиковался, поэтому все сформулированное мною не смогу описать понятным им языком)

    Not some of you thinking they WANTED to "take too long" to release. They obviously had label drama. And they didn't get the FBR deal for F@0, they got it when releasing Perceptions.

    Neon is good but it will most likely not see much success. When this band got the FBR deal for Fixed at Zero they were one of the most promising bands in the scene but they got too comfortable, taking way too long between released, changing members constantly and now changing their name? I'd love to see them reach true success but unfortunately I don't think it's going to happen at this point. [5]

    Please bands, stop changing the name to each exchange member!

    garfsimmortal, а ты "смелый" парень! )))) Нарочно пишешь на русском, чтобы "засранцы" не поняли? Боишься, что они тебя в ответ обзовут, а ты и расстроишься? )))))))))))

    I would like to hear more of what they tried in 'Neon'... they were unique and they still are, BUT I also want songs as 'Whisperer' and what they released with 'Fixed at Zero' like 'You'll Never Know', 'Lost Tree', 'Mind Reader'.. it's also sad they didn't released 'Another Atmosphere'. I trust (and respect) them as musicians... but I'll never get why a band (or an artist) who offers a lesson in 'how to write lyrics' at a charge. That disappoints me. I write lyrics since I'm 7 years old. Please, write and make music, but you can't teach such things...

    Neon sucks, the new name of band sucks. Where is VersaEmerge? I'm disappointed :(
