I don't start threads very often but I've seen the power of ChiefsPlanet work before so I figured I'd give it a try. Originally I started this thread in the media center but after some encouragement, decided to also put it in the lounge.

Please vote for Vedera's video at the link below. Your votes determine which videos get into rotation on mtvU each week only on The Freshmen.

Let me know and there will be rep for everyone who votes. Thanks guys! I appreciate your support!

Mods - Any possibility to "sticky" this until it ends on Friday at 2 pm? Thanks.

And thanks for the casino cash. I'll distribute that too! (Although never done that but I'll figure it out)

OK, in case anyone doesn't know....My son is the bass player for Vedera. That's why I'm a huge fan. Plus I just like their music.

Their album "Stages" has been released on iTunes and the physical release will be in January. "Satisfy" is the first single from the album and I believe will be released for national radio play in late November. They are rapidly on the rise.

Thanks to everyone for your support. I'll be getting back on later to spread more rep and dole out some casino cash.

Yeah...someone made a video for this awhile back. It was a bunch of their pics mixed with some animation. Last July they went out to Santa Barbara to shoot the actual "MTV / VH1" type of video.

Youtube has a ton of the old video's but the one being voted on is the real deal.

Thanks man!

Inspector
10-28-2009, 05:09 AM
Is this your band? What's the story?

This is my son's band. He is the long haired guy playing bass in the video. So, not my band but boy, do I have a lot invested in them. Jason has been playing guitar for most of his life and has been with a few different bands. They formed Vedera in 2004 (was known as "Veda" in the beginning but had to change the name due to legal action from another band with a similar name).

Their first album with Epic records has been released on iTunes and everything is looking good. They have toured extensively and just this year alone have played with The Fray, Jason Mraz, All American Rejects, The Plain White T's, The Wallflowers and Matt Kearney. This has been a very exciting year for our family.

I've still spread too much rep around over the last 24 hours so I'l be sending some casino cash to you guys who have voted.

Thanks a bunch to everyone. And thanks from Vedera too. They know about Chiefsplanet, this thread and the support you guys have given. We really appreciate it.

Yeah, I noticed that too. The band from New York and the rap guy seem to be getting the most. I was a little surprised that they would be running against a rap band since that's such a different style.

I'd rather they were comparing the entire album instead of just the video. Their website has 12 of the 13 songs from the album (link in my sig area) and I think the collection of all those songs are incredible and would compare well against those other bands.

Of course I'm very biased so what do I know.

Thanks for the votes and support. ChiefsPlanet is the best!

I listened to some of all of the music, but I have to say your kid's group does sound better than the rest. The girl singing is locked in with that voice, I know of a few songs she could sing that would really be great.

In for a dozen or so. How is that Charlie Boy scrub winning? The song blows and it has to be the most stereotypical, hack-job of a rap video I've seen since 2003.

Yeah, I had the same thought but I always assume I'm pretty biased. Plus rap isn't really my cup of tea.

Very different style of music. Vedera is incredible where the other...well...isn't.

Thanks man! Vedera is behind but that doesn't stop me appreciating the support from ChiefsPlanet!

Voted a couple more times. How they doin?

eh....so far they are not beating the rap vid. I guess those are more popular.

Vedera's "thing" is beautiful music by gifted musicians. Seems weird that it would be up against rap but what do I know. If anyone would like to hear a larger sampling of their wares, click below on their vederamusic web site. There is a pop-out player with 12 of the songs off of their new album "Stages".

Regardless, thanks to everyone who has helped. I believe the voting is until 2pm est tomorrow.

Finally watched all 5 videos, and only 1 of those bands has the ability to make it big, IMO. It's Vedera. Odds are against all of them, but they seem to have a real professional quality that seems to have broad appeal. Hot lead singer doesn't hurt one bit.

I think the rap band must have hired a group of folks to just sit there 24 x 7 and vote for them..:D

Thanks for the encouraging words. We have high hopes for them. They are working directly with Epic records president and VP. Their producer, Mike Flynn, has worked with some very successful groups (The Fray and others) and we have a lot of faith. (Epic has their video up last I checked their website)

Their sound isn't for everyone but I think they will have a huge commercial appeal. Check out their vederamusic site (below in my sig area) to hear 12 different songs from "Stages". I have the entire album (13 songs) on a CD and am totally hooked. But, of course, I have to admit to being biased.....

They write all their songs - even though there is one song that had other writers work on it - and Kristen is the lyrics master. That girl is a mega talent not to mention her having a personality that matches her physical beauty.:clap:

Thanks again everyone for taking the time to give them a vote. I hope you get a chance to listen to their work and find a tune ot two that you enjoy. All lyrics are family friendly so no worries about the kids hearing them either!:thumb:

Yeah, he's heard that before but stuck to the longer locks. Doing the "rock star" thing I guess. It's almost as long as mine was in the 70's and 80's. I just can't figure out where he gets that from?? :D

Thanks again to everyone here. And Mods, thanks for the sticky.

I appreciate the kind words and the encouragement. I have shared with the band what you guys said and let them know that they have friends here at ChiefsPlanet.

We didn't win but it was great exposure and I was happy for the opportunity to share their sound with the greatest posters on the best website on this or probably any other planet!!!! :clap:

FYI, I just bought the MP3 Album from Amazon. Satisfy is one of my son's favorite songs. He always wants to watch the video. I think he might have a crush. Of course, he's not even 3 yet, so I don't know how that works exactly. :)

For his 3rd birthday, we are making a mix CD of his favorite songs to give to the other kids/families. I'll be putting that song on there (unless you guys have an objection). Hoping to spread the world a little. :)

Vedera is pretty good, but even my hard core friends who like alt music just can't deal with chick lead singers. I doubt any of them have a no doubt, Dresdan dolls, Paramore, Bif naked, Silversun pickups, cd. You could just put the hot chick on bass and not have it sound so pussified. I think it's just a fact that most girls like POP or Sub Pop, booty shakin music, or country, then you got the alt girls and even they don't go REALLY ALT. All that said that charlie boy was the truth
