PRESENTED BY MATT CALDER
Velvet & Stone are a three (wo)man alt-folk band from Devon, UK. Soulful, bluesy vocals, combined with guitar, violin, and roots song-writing – Velvet and Stone provide an original take on a traditional genre, blending personal tales, local stories, and landscapes with their chilled, acoustic vibe.\u2028
Amazingly, the three band members - Lara, Kat and Holly - are all from the small village of Silverton in Devon. Holly and Lara both write, sing and play guitar, whilst Kat is a classically trained violinist, who has recently ‘converted’ to folk! The band gigged for the first time as a trio in February 2014, and have rapidly made a name for themselves.
In July 2014, they won singer-songwriter competition ‘The Song 2014′ at Gloucestershire venue The Convent, where two of their original songs – ‘Same Old Record’ and ‘The Storm’ won over the judges making them the winners of the ‘Judges Choice’ category.
The band recently had their first radio plays on BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, with very positive reviews of their record ‘Forget about the Rain’. They are currently recording their first EP, with boutique label Convent Records. This record will be released in autumn 2015, and will include a collection of their original songs, produced by musician/ producer Jack Henderson.
They will be gigging throughout the South West UK in 2015. News and updates on gigs and their EP-release can be found on their regularly-updated website, facebook, twitter, Instagram, and Soundcloud.
