Today on August 23rd, Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf release their sophomore LP on Isotopia Records, Feed The Wolf, featuring Parliament Funkadelic founder and 2019 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, George Clinton.
Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf are a dynamic 8-piece New York-based band that brings a vital and original dimension to the contemporary indie rock/funk scene. Fronted by the genre-defying powerhouse lead vocalist Miss Velvet and featuring a rhythm and brass section comprised of some of America’s leading studio musicians, the band has been garnering rave reviews for their highly accomplished musicianship and on-stage flair.
Feed The Wolf was produced by Constance Hauman and Nick Carbone and features eight new songs which were written and arranged by the band. The first single from the album, Phat Blunt, will be accompanied by a video created by celebrated director, Gabriel Hart, known professionally as VIDEOGOD.
Feed The Wolf is the follow-up album to the band’s highly acclaimed debut of 2015, Bad Get Some. The Huffington Post said “Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf are cap-a-pie prodigiously talented. The melodies are phenomenal, the rhythms are combustible and Miss Velvet’s voice contradicts the non-existence of the phlogiston.”
The band has performed over 100 concerts opening for George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic (2018-2019). The iconic worldwide tour has seen them play before audiences across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
“All I can say is, ‘Yowza!’ Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf are cap-a-pie prodigiously talented. The melodies are phenomenal, the rhythms are combustible and Miss Velvet’s voice contradicts the nonexistence of the phlogiston. BAD GET SOME and DARE blew me away.”
“Miss Velvet’s voice sounds perfectly fit for the stage… .an era-defying character.”
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“Miss Velvet’s performance was so multifaceted: unleashed, yet controlled. She evoked the rock ’n’ roll spirit of Janis Joplin, the whimsy of an Age of Aquarius gal, and
the steadfast power vocals of Aretha Franklin.”
“Launching a funk rock and roll attack, Miss Velvet grabbed the audience’s attention immediately with her raspy vocals and energy…Miss Velvet simmered the crowd, they’re one to look out for.”
