Veloura was formed in the summer of 2007 by Matt Fugazzie and Burak Saro Tirtir, two friends that had previously performed together in the popular local band idiot Proof. Matt was also coming off a stint with Actiondale, a short-lived but very well-received Rock/Pop/Punk act. The two were drawn back together by a shared desire to write, record, and perform new and revamped material. Armed with an arsenal of incredibly catchy tunes with easy to sing along with melodies, the band began recording a mix of acoustic and full band songs and booking local shows in order to perform them. With a sound that can be described as a mix of simplistic Green Day-esque chord progressions, infectious blink-182-like hooks, and rapid-fire Third Eye Blind-type lyrics and voice lines that quickly get stuck in your head, Veloura has everything necessary to become one of the world's most popular bands. While having a very inviting style that fans have an easy time getting into, they hardly are another rip-off or carbon copy of the bands they have been likened to. Veloura has a uniqueness to them that can only be attributed to Matt's thick-toned, heartfelt vocals and unorthodox way of playing the guitar, as well as Burak's versatility and mastery of so many instruments and music genres, added to the pair's chemistry while performing together. Veloura's live show is notable for being a tight-sounding and energetic performance mixed with fun, easy-going banter that keeps the crowd into the band's every move from start to finish. This band has the magic that only comes around once in a blue moon, and with their hard work and determination, nothing is going to stop them from reaching whatever heights they desire.
