Deena Jakoub and Brandon Brown, originally from Dallas, found new inspiration in Nashville, where drummer, Kyle Levy, and guitarist, Trevor Hinesley, joined to complete the group. VERIDIA officially formed in 2013. Their unique fusion of alternative rock and electronic elements quickly attracted major label attention. In their short time together, VERIDIA has already played Suburbia and Gulfport music festivals, opened for Red and Demon Hunter on their recent tour, and will be appearing at Voodoo Fest in October. The band has also been tapped to play the 2014-2015 Winter Jam tour.
VERIDIA released their debut EP, Inseparable, with Word Entertainment in February 2014. Recorded with producers Ian Eskelin, Matt Bronleewe and Stephen Keech, Inseparable included the #1 hit, “We Are The Brave,” and the current single, “Disconnected.” “We Are The Brave” was widely heard during broadcasts of NCAA softball games and the College World Series. VERIDIA is currently nominated for a Dove Award for “Rock Song of the Year” for “We Are The Brave”
