NME Artists


We formed in the spring of 2005 as a result of a chance meeting of three like minded musicians at a house party. After some conversation around a conveniently placed piano Velvet was born. The three people present were long time friends Mike and Dave and guitarist Darren Jones who mentioned that he knew a bass player who would probably be keen on playing in a group. A week later the first rehearsal took place and Velvet were fully formed.We are a lively group composing and playing original material. We have played many local gigs and are begining to make a name for ourselves further afield. We have just recorded and released our 4 track EP "Walk it Like You Talk It" with the aim of pushing for gigs at larger venues and organising a UK tour. We are always happy to accept bookings for a variety of events, having in the past played pubs, clubs, festivals, and even have a few weddings booked for the summer.We would like to say a big thank you to all of you who have supported us in the past (especially those of you who come to every gig without fail, you know who you are :) ) and hope to see you, and some new faces, at a velvet gig soon.All the bestMike, Dave, Daz an

Velvet Biography

Robyn Rowan Hitchcock (born 3 March 1953) is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist. While primarily a vocalist and guitarist, he also plays harmonica, piano and bass guitar.

Coming to prominence in the late 1970s with The Soft Boys, Hitchcock afterward launched a prolific solo career. His musical and lyrical styles have been influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Syd Barrett. Hitchcock's lyrics tend to include surrealism, comedic elements, characterisations of English eccentrics, and melancholy depictions of everyday life.

He was signed to two major American labels (A&M Records, then Warner Bros.) over the course of the 1980s and '90s, but mainstream success has been limited. He has maintained a loyal cult following and has often earned strong critical reviews over a steady stream of album releases and live performances.
