music resume


I compose music and perform in a lounge-pop band called Vermouth led by myself and my music partner Steve McDonald.

We released our debut album, RetroFuture Pop Exotica in 2013 which includes a host of talented multi-instrumentalists performing songs featuring sea anemones, go go dancers, iguanas and various tales of idiosyncratic friends. It is an intricate composition of vocal harmonies, atmospheric guitars, vibraphone, keyboards, trumpet, trombone, baritone sax, bass, melodica, percussion, drums, jungle calls and found sound including crickets, running water, birds and tide pools.

Vermouth is:
Justine Kragen -Vocals, Guitar, & Bass
Steve McDonald- Guitar and Bass

Currently performing live with:
Douglas Freyre- Bass, Accordion
Christine Cheung- Trombone
Anjilla Piazza- Drums
Chris Schell- Trumpet
Erika Tai- Backing Vocals
