Ever hear of VersaEmerge? If not, you’re not alone. Before VersaEmerge appeared on the MTV show World of Jenks last night, the band was relatively unknown but this morning, VersaEmerge is the #1 search on Google.
World of Jenks premiered back in September and is a documentary series featuring filmmaker Andrew Jenks. They go around the United States and follow the lives of inspirational people showing what it’s like to live in their shoes for one week. Last night’s episode was all about the band VersaEmerge, hailing from Port St. Lucie, Florida, and the lead singer Sierra Kusterbeck. The group is on the Fueled By Ramen record label and to date, VersaEmerge has put out 3 EP’s, the latest of which dropped June 22nd and is called Fixed at Zero.
So what do they sound like? VersaEmerge sounds like a mix of Paramore/Evanescence with singer Sierra Kusterbeck sporting that rock/goth image. The band took their name from the word “versa”, which means opposite and “emerge,” which means to rise or come into view. They’re definitely being seen now and will tour this fall.
See if VersaEmerge is your cup of tea. Here’s Fixed at Zero:
