They just released their newest CD “Sinfonia” and of course we already got the signed copy! (Thanks Coco!)
If you haven’t heard about it yet from our social media appearances – we’re finally going to play our first real gig this saturday!
We’re going to perform at the Local Bar in Vienna. Check out everything about it via the link to the FB event: Velvetree & FIller’s End – LIVE – FB event
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Today marks another small milestone for a young duo like us!
We sent out our first physical CD order to a costumer from abroad! It’s a tiny dream, that someone from another part in the world is interested in the music that we make. I couldn’t really believe my eyes at first when the order came in and immediately a happy dance around the apartment was in order!
Today it’s my turn to tell you a few things about Velvetree’s bass-queen Mia!
Writing music together was rather a spontaneous “yeah, we should do that” kind of idea and we started out without a concept or anything at all! Before meeting Mia, I had never heard anybody play the bass like she does. The way she uses flageolets and arranges the melody in powerful as well as soft patterns, has the power to spark the most amazing sceneries in my head. I’m simply grateful for being able to write music with her.
One of the things that I value most about Mia is that she doesn’t only talk about plans, she puts them into action. So, we tried writing music together – and tadah – we went on to form Velvetree, write songs, have our photos taken and bring out our first own EP! Mia is also a very skilled graphic designer, she designed our EP’s beautiful booklet. She came up with the idea of using a double-gate fold, which now perfectly introduces everyone to our booklet. It’s great to have such a driving force like Mia as a partner in this project!
Let me tell you something about our wonderful singer: Alex!
Can you imagine the feeling of meeting someone you immediatly click with on several levels? That was the case with Alex. The closer we grew the more commonalities we discovered, which ultimately lead to this project – Velvetree.
I think that Alex’ input is what was missing in my music all along. It didn’t feel whole, but now it definitely does. Thanks to her.
The talent she displays,, when she comes up with vocals and lyrics, is absolutely astounding! I can never imagine vocals to an instrumental, but when I first hear her approach I find myself wondering: “How could it be anything but that? It’s perfect!”
And did you know that the name “Velvetree” was also her idea? In fact, Alex is responsible for the whole aesthetic concept of this project with nature being such a major theme.
I’m very grateful to have met and to be working with such an amazing person as Alex.
Woohoo! What a thing to say.
After lots of work we can finally share our first piece of music with all of you. Naturally, we had to celebrate that! So, last Sunday, 25th of March, we gathered with a couple of friends to enjoy tea and cakes at Café Little Britain in Vienna!
Are you ready to travel back in time with us? Here’s your chance…
Today marks the two-year-anniversary of our very first live performance at Bass und Bässer in Weiz! Back then we hadn’t even decided on a name yet! It’s incredible how time flies…
Therefore, we’d like to take a look back at Velvetree’s 2017 – it was an eventful year indeed!
