View On Black


A Verse Unsung is an electrifying and aggressive rock group of four young guys from Minneapolis. They have just finished their first EP and are making a name for themselves in the Minneapolis rock scene. The band started a year ago when Jake and Dan began hanging out and writing songs on acoustic, a year later they have a full line up and over 15 songs written.


For their first EP they decided they wouldn’t settle for just any recording studio or producer. They ended up meeting Grammy winning producer Steve Hodge and local producer Colt Leeb and things clicked. Colt and Steve showed up to few practices and helped the band establish 5 solid songs to record. They recorded “The Autumn EP" this fall in Master Mix Studio’s less than a year after the band started. “This stuff has turned out REALLY GOOD” said Steve Hodge on the last night of recording A Verse Unsung’s EP. Hodge is known for his work as an engineer under Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis at the now extinct Flyte Tyme Studios in Edina. Hodge has previously worked on more than 40 No. 1Billboard hits mostly in the Pop and R&B charts. He won a Grammy Award in 2001 for his remix of Janet Jackson’s “All for you”. He now works out of Master Mix Studio’s in Minneapolis, where he and Colt recorded A Verse Unsung.


AVU has now released their first EP and sold 500 copies within the first month. They have been playing shows all around the Midwest, and are planning a 2 week spring tour and a full summer tour. The band has also started production on their next batch of songs with producers Steve Hodge and Colt Leeb. They have decided to record another 5 songs, and will be releasing them sometime this summer. They will also be featured in the March edition of Access Magazine as “Best new artist”. The Buzz continues to grow about A Verse Unsung from their fiercely aggressive performances to their hard hitting CD so next time they come through your town check out their show and pick up a copy of there new CD!
