The Vernons are a couple of Australian dudes who like jamming out to bluesy rock n’ rock. “Shake n Roll” was released off their debut EP, Volume I, in the US on September 6th, 2013 produced by multi award winning engineer Yanto Browning. The song then went on to inspire a T-Mobile commercial. They are already back in the studio recording Volume II expected to be released in July. Watch the video below!
This 4-piece rock n’ rock band consists of Jonny Nyst (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), James Nikiforides (Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals), Hugh Tait (Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Elliot Gooch (Drums/Backing Vocals). Since 2011, the guys have been working to take music from the vinyl age and transition it into a new sound without losing any flavor. There are traces of influences such as Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, and Jack White running through the veins of their songs.
With a relentless work ethic, the Vernonshave a dominance of their live performance that has developed a cult crowd following of belligerence and debauchery that has ultimately labeled them as one of Australia’s most exciting young blues-rock outfits today. Hit single, “Standing In Line” will catch your attention by the first guitar riff, causing you to dance along with the catchy beat throughout the whole three-minute track. “White Wine” airs more on the relaxed side, which will leave the listener hanging on to each lyric that comes out of Nyst’s mouth, showcasing his smooth and irresistible vocals.
Sculpting their sound from belligerent nights out, hung-over days in, and their parents old vinyl records, lead-singer Nyst tells us, “Volume I is our first EP, but in just 4 songs it basically tells the story of our lives over the past 2 years. Whether they were written just to have fun and party, or to remember meeting a pretty girl at one of our shows, or something much more deep and meaningful, each song is directly related to our journey, working together every day on the road. Obviously, there are good times and there are bad times, and this EP basically captures all those emotions, and tells the tale of a hard working bunch of rock ‘n’ rollers.”
