The Greek “Jule Vera” translates to “young truth”, which is a most appropriate name for the hottest, new, young, alternative rock band that has taken major cities in North America by storm and will soon be rocking their sound throughout Europe.
Jule Vera includes Trinity natives, Kyle Horvath, 22, who drives the rhythmic beat as percussionist, and brother, Alex, 23, who serves as tour manager for the group; as well as Alabamans, Jake Roland, 19, who leads with his talented guitar skills; William Stacey, 22, who maintains deep undertones on his bass guitar; and lead singer, Ansley Newman, 19, the youngest member and only female, who keeps their growing fan base coming back for more of her lead vocals and smooth, alto-rich sound.
Alternative Press touted Jule Vera as one of the “top 100 bands to watch,” and AP reviewer, Matt Crane, posted glowing comments on their website about the energy and dynamics of one of AP’s “Top 10 videos of 2015, so far.”
Trinity businessman, Barry Horvath, of Advisors Mortgage and Financial Group and Dynamic Title, and proud Dad of Kyle & Alex, had this to say: “It’s exciting to see this band take off and watch them grow; (Jake, Ansley & Will) were introduced to Kyle in October 2014, and by January this year, they were signing new contracts with producers Pure Noise Records in California, tours started falling into place, and they began receiving lots of national press. It’s very cool to see!”
Jule Vera is not like most rock bands. They are respectful of their craft and their audience. They are down to earth and they appreciate their fans, without whom they would not have risen so quickly in this highly-competitive industry. They are simply the grown-up, ambitious, hard-working kids next door, living their collective musical dreams and seeing them to fruition.
Jule Vera regularly returns to New Port Richey/Trinity to participate in and support fundraising events. Our local stars recently performed at the West Pasco Business Association’s River Lights Boat Parade on December 5, and at “How the Grinch Saved Christmas” at Spartan Manor, December 12 as well as this year’s Winterfest celebration, December 13.
