VERA

  • Hawrelak Park 9330 Groat Rd NW Edmonton, AB, T6G 2B3 Canada (map)

The name VERA came about while trying to find a name for a dog. Frontman Douglas Mitchell was reading through a book on German names trying to find a name for his family's new dachshund puppy. 

It occurred to him that VERA (which means Truth/Hope in German) would make an interesting band name.  The name also brought to mind one Doug's of favorite albums:  Pink Floyd's The Wall, inwhich the singer VERA Lynn is used as a symbol for the promise of hope.  Those two words 'truth" and "hope" have become an underlying theme in much of VERA's music to date.  Oh, and the dog?  The kids eventually named her Molly.

VERA consists of guitar player and lead singer Douglas Mitchell, as well as guitarist Kyle Mosiuk, Keyboardist Brennan Cameron, bassist Paul Bergeron and drummer Brendan Lyons.  The band released their self titled debut album in January 2013 and have since been performing original music across Alberta.

VERA's music is modern in tone, but with vintage throwbacks to classicrock, pop. blues and soul music.  Their music is energetic and their shows mirror this while theyare performing live.Both on stage and on record, VERA commands attention and always delivers a reason to keep moving, keep grooving, and keep listening.
