versaemergeHello blogosphere. Just chiming in with the latest addition to the Fueled By Ramen label: VersaEmerge. Fighting out of Port St. Lucie, FL they seem like another female-fronted teenage pop-punk outfit…but are they? I noticed a few things while browsing their myspace page. In one of their videos, I saw that they showed their two vocalists with a vocal coach during a lesson. That really impressed me, showing that they’re serious about getting better and are willing to take the steps to do so (including practicing in what appeared to be a storage unit). Another video has an acoustic performance of their track “The Authors.” Frontwoman Sierra Kusterbeck officially plants herself on my musical radar with her bazooka of a voice. I guess those lessons really paid off. Check out the video for yourself–>

However, it’ll be interesting to see if VersaEmerge can distinguish themselves from labelmates Paramore and Hey Monday, in addition to bands like Flyleaf, Evanescence, and paltry Kelsey and the Chaos. They’re young, but with the Kusterbeck’s pipes and some fine instrumentation, I think they can.


Correction: Hey Monday is not on Fueled By Ramen as I referenced in this post. However, Paramore is still on FBR, contrary to Rob’s comment. It’s all explained in this email from Adam over at Fueled By Ramen:

Paramore is on Fueled By Ramen but the Atlantic Records team helps work with them.

Decaydance is a separate label from FBR. We have some bands in common with them and others that are only on FBR. Decaydance also has bands that are only on Decaydance.

versa emerge are not label mates with either paramore (atlantic records) or hey monday (decaydance/columbia). and i think your blog is pretty paltry.
