“Regardless of where the music business leads them, the family that is Genevieve will strive to be sincere to their sound and each other. “I just want us to make honest music,” Urmenita said. “As long as we’re improving and staying creative and staying honest to ourselves musically, I think all the extra concerts and fan base all comes as a side effect of being who we are.””

“Although they won last year’s contest and opened for the Ying Yang Twins during Springfest 2010, guitarist Jacob Leon said the competition looks good this year and Genevieve has been practicing every night since returning from Spring Break. Vocalist Olivia Thomas said besides singing and practicing every day, she has been listening to Kanye West daily to prepare.”

“Opening the show was local group Genevieve, who have gained a huge support and following at WSU over the last year. It made sense that they would open and warm up the crowd. Getting them pumped and excited for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.”

“Musical differences aside, Genevieve is a tight-knit group, constantly one-upping each other and taking equal shares in co-parenting their adopted Chihuahua-pug mix music puppy ZigZag. Genevieve's hobby is playing any generation of Nintendo's "Super Smash Bros." series, showing their Nintendo prowess as '90s kids.”
