Their styles honed by their experiences as founding members of various bay area bands, Marlies de Veer (guitar/vocals) and Amy Beasley (bass/vocals) of Blue House combine a rocker’s attitude with a folkier acoustic/electric approach to give them a unique sound. A vital part of that sound is their close-knit harmonies. Brian Loud joined the band a few years ago on guitar and vocals. Blue House performs throughout the bay area playing an eclectic mix of both original and cover material.
Amy Beasley is a talented singer, bass guitarist and songwriter who was born in Corning, New York and threw away a promising career as a cartoon couch potato (in her early childhood) to begin her career on piano, then moved to the guitar when she was big enough to hold one.
Marlies de Veer – singer, guitarist and songwriter was born into Dutch citizenship on the island of Borneo and now is a proud citizen of the United States. She started playing guitar at the age of 11 and performing with Beasley when they were in high school together.
Brian Loud – singer, guitarist and songwriter who is originally from Tennessee, brings his smooth vocals, distinguished guitar work and sense of humor to Blue House shows.
