    Have Yourselves a Rocking Christmas

    Have Yourselves a Rocking Christmas

    Versonic is a 5-Piece Indie Rock Guitar Covers Band from Epsom UK. We play a pulsating heady mix of anthemic, crowd-pleasing and some might say singalong rock guitar covers. With the band having 5 gigs in the month of December we thought we had better get festive and include a few Christmas songs to our set. We thought long and hard about which songs our audience might like, and of course staying true to the indie rock 'bangers' vibe that Versonic is renowned for we headed down to the Versonic Music Studio and smashed out these four Christmas Crackers for your delight and delectation;

    1. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

    2. Step Into Christmas

    3. Last Christmas

    4. Merry Christmas Everybody

    We play these tracks live as part of our December shows and they have proved to be extremely popular with our audiences. You can grab yourself a personal copy on CD at Versonic gigs, or you can stream for free, but do yourselves a favour and download your very own copy for future Christmas' - or gift it to someone special for a Fiver on our Bandcamp. https://versonic1.bandcamp.com/album/have-yourselves-a-rocking-christmas-ep

    Don't be a Scrooge now!

    Happy Christmas from all at Versonic

    Lead the Way

    Lead the Way

    Delighted to welcome Rapper/Singer-Songwriter Jay Dagley as my guest on Episode 046 of the Feeling Versonic Podcast 'Lead the Way'. 

    Jay, from Leicestershire found a great passion in music from a young age. His early influences were Robbie Williams, Maroon 5 and Justin Timberlake. In 2002 Eminem released ‘Lose yourself’ which drew Jay’s attention to rap and the art of song writing.

    At 14 years old Jay started to write his own lyrics to grime instrumentals, shortly after he was given the opportunity to record music with a local singer beginning his ambition to become a recording artist.

    In 2009 a collaboration with Kev Bland, a friend and mentor, led to producing 3 acoustic albums over 5 years.

    Jay then invested in his own home studio allowing him to expand his knowledge of the recording and production of music whilst also working with a Nuneaton based producer.

    2014 sparked a collaboration with up and coming producer ‘Hive’ which began with freestyling to acoustic guitar riffs and has developed in to a long working relationship releasing numerous singles. Jay and Hive produced their first music video in 2019 launching their online presence leading to features on Hive sessions vlog.

Top podcast

There aren’t that many times in a week where I choose to spend an hour listening to one show but Feeling Versonic is exceptional... Friendly, interesting, chatty, and with great music but take that as a given.. what this podcast really delivers is insight.! I go away knowing more about songwriters and about the business side of music. What’s more it inspires me... to write, to listen and to improve, and I enjoy every minute... Jon done!!
