Indie Rock with a unique jazzy, bluesy, singer-songwriter twist
Sizzling & New: It’s the Bev Wasserman Band’s fresh Indie Rock from Fort Collins, Colorado.
Taking inspiration from the beautiful mountains surrounding them, incubated in the hopping musical environment of Colorado’s Front Range, the Bev Wasserman Band shares their unique style of Indie Rock with a jazzy, bluesy, singer-songwriter twist, blasting out powerful vocals and inspiring instrumentals on natural overdrive.
The Old Red Truck—born in 1954—now with faded red paint, dings and scratches from a life well lived. It stands out… just like the Indie Rock of the Bev Wasserman Band.
And when you hear Bev’s soul-iced voice laying out harmonic words like sounds from an undiscovered world, coupled with the growl of Bruce’s upright bass, the howl of his blues harp in a gutsy weathered wooden porch jam session, tied together with Chris’s inspired, perfectly picked strings—almost jumping off the guitar—then it all starts to make sense. Everything. The why of the music, the long-lost yet found harp lines, the indescribably delicious vocals and resonant tomes of tones. And the roar of a one-of-a-kind, big old red truck.
Bev has always had a voice that stood out from the crowd. As a child, she sang in choirs at school and in church. Early in her career she was the lead singer for the bands, Touches of Love and Fully Committed, among others.
She was the lead vocalist for noted Denver-based Jazz Sax player Laura Newman with her band AOA in the early 1990‘s and worked with numerous other bands through Pro-Entertainment Events, in Colorado.
“My aunt was an opera singer for the New York Met,” she says, noting that music runs in her family. “And my grandmother, Jewell Belle, toured St. Louis, Chicago and Detroit regularly as a singer and pianist in Big Bands. Her voice was big. To me, she was like a better version of Ella Fitzgerald… she was that good.”
Bev’s voice stands alone—in a class by itself—a fitting tribute to her venerable musical heritage. Her rendition of songs, powerfully driven from a place deep within her soul, lifts her audiences, elevating senses, bringing cascading light beams to the music of The Bev Wasserman Band.
