The Veer Union formed in 2004, when vocalist Crispin Earl and guitarist Eric Schraeder found themselves living in adjacent rehearsal studios in downtown East Vancouver. The friends had previously pursued music in different bands; Earl contributed songs to Tommy Lee's solo album and fronted the band Everything After, while Schraeder enjoyed a short stint on Hollywood Records with 40 Foot Echo. On February 22, 2012, it was announced that bassist Marc Roots and guitarist James Fiddler left the band. Schraeder grew apart from Earl after dropped from their record label Universal Motown Records

Hard rock band ZamTrip hails from Rock Springs, Wyoming, and consists of members Kyle Zampedri, Cory Zampedri, Cody Zampedri and Samantha Newman. These four distinct, young, talented individuals share an unprecedented passion for rock and roll music. Heavily influenced by bands such as Motley Crue, Halestorm, Royal Bliss, Black Stone Cherry, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and more, ZamTrip is an energetic band with a signature sound that will leave you wanting more – guaranteed!

ZamTrip has shared the stage with the Grammy Award winning rock band Halestorm. They have also been lucky enough to play with national and international acts like Royal Bliss, Ron Keel, American Hitmen, October Rage, and The Silent Comedy. ZamTrip's ever-growing roster of shows includes incredible headliners such as Lita Ford, Vince Neil, Blue Oyster Cult, April Wine, Slaughter, Firehouse and a slew of vintage and local acts well worthy of mention. The band, with members still attending high school, released their debut album titled "Harm and Destruction" in May of 2013, and on April 7th of 2014 released two brand new singles – the low, growling "All Your Days Have Ended," and the highly anticipated local KSIT Rock 99.7 radio hit "Back Seat Love Song."

​Kyle Zampedri, the oldest of the three brothers, is the band's lead guitarist, whose blues-based background gives ZamTrip their raw, unique and uncut sound. Drummer Cory Zampedri has a crushing backbeat that drives the band steadily and precisely through their pumping, energizing live set. Cody Zampedri displays multiple talents, both as a solid, stylistic bassist who tightens up the rhythm section with his hard driving bass lines, and as a vocal backup – and sometimes lead – on many of their songs. Samantha Newman is ZamTrip's stunning lead vocalist, with her influences ranging from Lzzy Hale and Amy Lee to Pat Benetar - she is the perfect addition to the group, giving the four-piece a fresh blended sound and a gutsy edge that's crisp, clear and concise.

Success is on the rise quickly with this young band of musicians - from the local support at home with radio and press (KSIT, SweetwaterNow), to regional recognition (AMR.FM, KNRQ.DB), to even national mentions, plays and shares on social networks and underground radio - ZamTrip works hard to deliver as any professional group would. The bands they share the stage with rave to their peers; when Royal Bliss shares a clip of 'Get A Little' to pals Wayland, who are honored by the killer cover of their song enough to share worldwide on social media, the ZamTrip crew can't help but to push harder, rock louder and advance forward with their promising careers in music.

​ZamTrip's one and only goal is to spread their own special brand of rock and roll around the world, and share the music that runs in their blood with the fans.
