Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf
is a new band on the American Indie Rock/funk scene. Their ‘in your face, badass’ sound has been described as ‘if the 70’s band Chicago and Led Zeppelin had a baby with Janis Joplin, you would get Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf.’ Wowing audiences in NYC and Austin TX at the 2016 SXSW Festival, this 8 piece powerhouse of a band chose Detroit Michigan’s iconic United Sound Studio, home to Earth, Wind and Fire, George Clinton and Parliament Funkhadelic to record their debut album, BAD GET SOME with a street date release set for Sept. 15th 2017 on Isotopia Records.
Miss Velvet may be tall, thin and blond, but her epic voice thrills with the unlikely sound of James Brown, Steven Tyler, and Joe Cocker with the soulfulness of Janice and Etta James, taking the listener on a journey back to the days of psychedelic rock and funk.
Their preview 3 track EP entitled DARE, released Mar.22nd on Isotopia Records, marked their European debut at the Tallinn Music Week in Estonia with rave reviews from Guitar Magazine and Cult Factory.
Owning the stage this summer with their NYC summer residency at Rockwood Music Hall, (June, July and August 2017) Miss Velvet’s incendiary stage presence and electrifying vocals will take her and The Blue Wolf back to Estonia for the Jogevatreff Festival July 28 and the Auguusti Bluus Festival Aug. 5.
Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf head out to the Hamptons Labor Day Weekend for their first appearance at Stephen’s Talk house, Sun. Sept. 3rd. Mon. Sept. 4th they open up for legendary Charles Bradley on the Surflodge Summer Concert Series.
With the release of BAD GET SOME on Sept. 15th, Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf will return again to Europe, The Baltics and The UK, touring with Elephants of Neptune Oct. and Nov. 2017.
“On stage Miss Velvet slithers around with the mystical presence of Jim Morrison, belting notes with impassioned intensity over the burst of drums, brass, and chords. A bohemian goddess with cascading locks and sensually powerful vocals, Miss Velvet exudes freedom in the most enchanting way. Starting moody and mellow in Velvet Door, the record's opening track, Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf slowly increase the intensity with each soulful jam. The last single, Like You Do -- a thunderous track with bluesy rock rhythms and empowered lyrics-- will leave you begging for more” (FROM CULT FACTORY)
“Miss Velvet’s voice sounds perfectly fit for the stage…An era-defying character” (CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND)
"The popular US funk-soul-rock band Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf enchanted especially with fantastically diverse vocals - the Janis Joplin comparison is not entirely off the mark. Energetic, radio-friendly songs meet old school rock sound.” (GUITAR MAGAZINE TALLINN MUSIC WEEK)
“Miss Velvet treated the audience to one of those incendiary moments that promises all in attendance they are on the ground floor of the next big thing. A new thing that is the spark of something wonderful and long lasting” (THE EXAMINER)
