Music in the Park Continues Tonight with Indie/Alt Band ‘Verlee for Ransom’
REMINDER: Burien’s FREE ‘Music in the Park’ series starts at 6:30 p.m. with live Indie Alt Pop from Seattle band Verlee for Ransom tonight – Thursday, Aug. 9 – at Lake Burien School Park, located at SW 148th Street and 16th Ave SW.
This is the second to the last show, so if you haven’t been to one of these free shows courtesy Burien Parks, now would be a good time to go.
Verlee for Ransom a lively, original, indie band lead by a young woman named Keira Verlee – and from what we can tell/hear, they’re definitely worth seeing (and hearing on SoKing Internet Radio)!
Here’s a bio:
Building from the standard electric guitar/bass/drums formula, the five members of Verlee for Ransom incorporate acoustic guitar & cello as well as piano, horns, organ & strings with the help of multiple keyboards/synthesizers. Infusing elements of classic rock, chamber pop, jazz, alternative, Americana, Latin, bossa nova, powerpop, alt country, ska and even doo wop… they have branded their own unique style of piano & guitar driven Indie Pop.
This may sound like a lot going on (and it is), but when anchored by the thoughtful & sincere songwriting and heartfelt vocals of 16-year old singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist, Keira Verlee… it all comes together in a very cohesive and impressive performance.
