Oshawa quartet Verra City Waves bring their blues-infused sound to the Elmdale Tavern Friday, Nov 2.
The band started as a duo, made up of singer Kiera Amyot and vocalist/guitarist Keith Dean, before recently adding Kiera’s bro Conor on bass and drummer Tervor Dewit. The addition of Conor and Tervor has given the band’s vibe a harder edge, Conor says. He admits he never expected to be in a band with his sister.
"We always got along,” he says. “It’s kind of a big surprise that we ended up doing it. I’ve always been serious about music, while Kiera sings for fun."
There is a definite sense of fun to Verra City Waves’ music mixed in with rock and alternative influences.
The band will release a new EP titled Buried in the Sand (listen to the title track below) in the near future.
Kingston readers can catch the band at the Toucan on Saturday, Nov 3.
