"Musicain Review on "The Velvet Sessions""

There's nothing like a smooth ride on a great groove with "bang your
head through the windshield" energy. Vinyl Contrast has a blend of
rhythm and energy that is reminiscent of vintage Chilli Peppers.

-Darin Steckler, founder of musical act "Miss Lonely" - Darin Steckler


The Velvet Sessions EP to be released March 2009

Radio Airplay on National Campus Radio throughout Canada in the near future.



Some describe Vinyl Contrast's musical fusion as innovative and revolutionary as Dave Matthews Band or vintage Red Hot Chili Peppers. The quartet joined together in the summer of 2008 and their extensive knowledge from a variety of musical genres have allowed them to bring a new sound to their musical creations. Founders, Matt and RĂ©mi have been writing and playing together for 7 years. The two are on a musical wavelength that are shared by only a few but joined with Alex and Karlan, the band creates a musical explosion. Karlan has had a lifetime background in musical theater which landed him the lead role of Pseudolus in his high school's recreation of the musical "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Alex has had extensive music theory and ear training and has been apart of many local jazz bands over the last 6 years, along with many years on guitar and bass.

After a few short months together, the band wrote, recorded and released a debut four song disc titled "The Velvet Sessions". With this first recording under their belt, they show no sign of slowing down. The band is currently planning a national campus radio campaign as well as a viral marketing campaign in the U.S to expand outside their northern boarders into a whole new world. Along with this, VC is also working on a follow up to "The Velvet Sessions" with a six track EP that is planned for commercial release in the fall of 2009. With the unyielding work ethic that the band shows, it has lead to many contacts with many major professionals from many aspects of the music industry. Linda Dawe of Music Solutions Inc. describes the band for having "an acid funk/retro rock sound with epic songs." The band also has worldwide online distribution through Bullseye Records Canada

The band strives to create something that sounds different from modern day music. They write about real life situations and every word of lyric is the honest truth. The subject matter of everyday life inspires the band to create music that many people can relate to. Always playing whenever possible, Vinyl Contrast is always improving, racing to be the best band they can be. They are definitely a band that has the aggression to be an audible force within this endless changing industry.
