Listen to the musical offerings of The Veer Union. The Canadian rockers were formed in 2004 by lead singer Crispin Earl (pictured above) and guitarist Eric Schreaeder. Their camp say: “Originally from Port Alberni on Vancouver Island, the two longtime friends and neighbors had a common bond. “We had played in bands together and we were both living out of our rehearsal studios in downtown East Vancouver,” recalls Crispin. Living for their music was to become the thing that held the UNION together. Crispin, who was the vocalist for the popular local band called Everything After, was gaining national attention as a songwriter with credits on Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee’s solo CD ‘Tommyland: The Ride’. Eric was working on projects of his own. The two wrote music together for months and found their styles extremely compatible.”Get into that compatible sound below. The 4-piece are set to release new material early 2016.
