Conceived in the San Francisco Bay Area and realized in Philadelphia, indie rockers The Vernes are “part of the welcomed migration of talented, young artists continuing to flow into our City of Brotherly Love.” Their songs are often happy in tone though somber in content, combining singer/guitarist Matthew Gragg’s unique vocal style and introspective lyrics with touches of fuzz guitar, synth, and drum machines. The four piece, also consisting of Fabian Mera, Cole Berggren, and Pat Degan, offer a contrast between tightly produced recordings and dynamic live performances. Their first album, a collection of homemade EPs and singles, was released in March of 2017. Their debut studio album, “Maybe I’ll Feel Better When I’m Dead” was recorded and produced by Joe Michelini (American Trappist, River City Extension) at Berlin Studios in South Jersey.
