After a smattering of catchy indie feel-good singles, including ‘Losing My Mind’, an up-tempo, foot stomping rock n’ roll gem that received great reactions from alternative radio and television (Kerrang!, Arrow, Total Rock, XFM, Ex-tube’s Extreme Sports and E4’s School Of Performing Arts), this trio have created a buzz of interest from all who’ve caught this great band live.

Some Velvet Morning are Des Lambert (Vocals/Guitar), Gavin Lambert (Bass) and Rob Flanagan (Drums), and formed the band after a chance meeting in London’s tin-pan alley, Denmark Street. They came to the attention of industry legend Vicki Wickham, of New York indie label RhythmBank Entertainment. Vicki, having produced seminal UK TV Show Ready, Steady Go, which launched such legendary artists as The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding and The Who onto the UK public, and latterly managed the likes of Dusty Springfield, Marc Almond and Morrissey, could be said to know her music. She fell in love with Some Velvet Morning and signed them on the spot.

In October this year the band visited the states, where they showcased material at one of the best known venues in NYC, Joe's Pub, paid tribute to John Lennon at Strawberry Fields in Central Park and played at the international music industry showcase CMJ. The tour also saw them feature on one of the most influencial US music TV shows, Fearless – a show which has introduced such talents as Hot Chip, KT Tunstall, Supergrass and Kasabian to US audiences.

Back in the UK, Some Velvet Morning tracks, ‘Let The Good Times Come My Way’ and ‘Propaganda’ have recently featured on BBC Radio 2 Bob Harris & Alex Lester shows. November saw the band appear on the station’s Janice Long show, where they performed further tracks from their debut album, Silence Will Kill You’ live. The record was produced by Rik Simpson (Kasabian / Coldplay) and Mike Pelanconi (Lilly Allen / Graham Coxon) and features Bauhaus techni-gloss artwork, which has attracted some of the trendiest pop art & imagery galleries in London, including Galleria Charlick.

'Silence Will Kill You', is pure emotion and drive. It is not about an “issue” - it is about human involvement with “issues”. It does not speak out against oppressive regimes, but focuses on the current erosion of freedoms and what that will lead to (Propaganda). It is about standing up and voicing a different perspective (The Madness of Crowds, humanism Vs religion (Godless) and the personal expression of desires and creativity, thereby avoiding insanity (Losing My Mind). Human history is steered by choices. Add your voice.
