VEER is a Maryland-based alternative rock band whose roots are planted firmly in the soil of the mid-Atlantic music scene.
Comprised of members from Kelly Bell Band, Nellie Blide, and Public Eye, VEER’s music owes its origin to the post-grunge, alternative rock movement of the mid- and late ’90s. Songs like “Come Clean,” “Power Drive,” and “Douse” have quickly come to signify their brand of original, hard-hitting, rhythm-driven alt-rock, layered with enigmatic lyrics. “Lyrically, the songs are about nothing and everything all at once,” says frontman Ronald Malfi.
The backbone of the band consists of bassist Christian Mathis and drummer Jon Malfi, whose cohesion forms a steady pulsing groove at the heart of each song. Hook-laden choruses, driving guitar riffs (augmented by lead guitarist Ryan Fowler’s blistering solos), and energetic live performances have quickly earned the band a place among the mid-Atlantic’s elite.
