VerleeRose - Wildy's World Artist Of The Month; May, 2009

Wildy’s World Artist Of The Month, May 2009: VerleeRose

VerleeRose have a lot of tongues wagging, but it’s nothing compared to what may be coming down the road. Fifteen year old Keira Verlee and fourteen year old Ellie Rose have been tabbed the next Tegan and Sara and even the next Indigo Girls, but the original voice they display as songwriters sets them apart from being clones of either duo. The ladies of VerleeRose met as sixth graders in their Seattle middle school, bonding over come experiences of voice and piano lessons. They were thrown together to write and perform a song for their middle school graduation in 2008 and received an enthusiastic response they couldn’t ignore.

VerleeRose is Wildy’s World’s Artist Of The Month for May, 2009 because they remind us what music is supposed to be all about. Listen to their debut album, These Moments, and you’ll hear all of the joy of making music that every musician starts out with. There’s a great deal of talent in these two young ladies, and These Moments is just the start. VerleeRose was given this platform because they show the early earmarks of greatness, and I would not be at all surprised if twenty years from now, or even ten, VerleeRose will be a name that everyone knows.

We will be reviewing their debut release, These Moments this month, and perhaps even chatting with VerleeRose to give our readers a chance to get to know them. In the mean time, be sure to check out their MySpace page to learn a bit more. (Photo by Adam Forslund)
