VersaEmerge was founded by Blake Harnage and former drummer Anthony Martone, the two high school students, who parted from their previous band MFV. Sierra Kusterbeck, who joined the band in 2007, had to audition for her incorporation in the band, when she was just 16 year old. Although, back at that time, she lied that she was 18, so that she could get a chance for the audition. After some initial hesitation, Blake Harnage, the guitarist, convinced the other band members to appoint the teenager as a singer in VersaEmerge. The name VersaEmerge is derived from the word “Versa”, which means opposite, and “Emerge” means rise up. That itself shows the non-conformist nature of its music in the form of Alternative, Experimental and early Post Hard-core rock. Many other exciting details of the band and the singer, will be revealed in the show this week.
