Biography

Melancholy indie-pop outift Very Secretary was formed in Champaign-Urbana, IL in March of 1997 by singer/guitarist Dave Johnson, his bassist brother Allen, guitarist Tim Adamson and ex-Braid drummer Roy Ewing. Following the group’s 1998 debut, Best Possible Souvenir, Adamson left the line-up and was replaced by violinist Rachael Dietkus, heralding an even more lush, mournful sound first glimpsed on “Nagarkot,” Very Secretary’s contribution to Tree Records’ Postmarked Stamps singles series. The band’s sophomore LP, the lovely Standing in the Shade, appeared in mid-1999, but while touring the following spring in 2000, Very Secretary disbanded. — Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
