They met in a place that sounds perfect for the birthplace of a band – Blue Springs. Kristen May, daughter of a drummer, grew up in this suburb of Kansas City, as did Brian Little (who is now Kristen May’s husband), Drew Little (who has always been Brian Little’s younger brother), and Jason Douglas (their high school friend). They are Vedera, they’ve been around for more than five years, and they are currently on tour.

Here’s one of their songs, Satisfy
The lyrics of Satisfy:

If there was a way to try and make it back
Back to where we started from
Could I find a way to try and make you stay
Would I know what could be done?

I don’t want to deny my heart its chance to feel
I don’t want to deny my soul something real

Is there anything left in this world that will satisfy me?
Is there anything left in this world that will satisfy you tonight?

We were sailing on
I could see the world below
Never thought of coming down
Expectations fell
It seemed as though our will was no match for the trouble found

So take my hand and i wont look back
Though I’ve lived tossed along these waves
I will stay
