Biography

We are Velvet Elvis from Rochester NY. Our heavy driving riffs and spaced out overtones of feedback and echo laden guitars, paired with powerful soaring vocal lines will blow your mind. Our strong aspirations to progress as a band allows us to write songs with a familiar goove, while continuously improving and perfecting our musical style. We are currently seeking to expand our horizons through recording a full length album and booking a tour of New York and neighboring states in summer 2010. Our debut EP was recorded in our practice space and released through our own self distribution. We intend to make our full length album a powerful statement of who we are, where we come from, and where our band is headed in future. Velvet Elvis is committed to being a unique and progressive recording artist, while performing live with an unrelenting, unapologetic, and distinctly heavy groove.
