The New Velvet

Well Happy Thursday everyone!

The weekend is here and I think it’s time for some tunes!

Normally, I’m not a huge music fan.  That’s not to say that I don’t like music, I just don’t normally like music for the sake of music. I tend to like music that speaks to me.

Jimmy Buffett, of course, is my favorite. He sings about drinking margaritas and enjoying the good life. That speaks to me.

Reggae is a genre that I tend to like more than most, because it takes me away to some of the best times in my life. One modern Reggae artist, Mishka, rarely falls off the “Recently Played” list on my iTunes.
80’s Rock... Oh Hell Yeah!

Some country music really gets my toes tapping, but I do hate that soggy, poor me, my dog died and the woman left and I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT!

Life is rough enough, I certainly don’t need reminded of it when I listen to music!

I like happy music, something I can sing along with. Musical talent, not just noise!

Pop Rock is more often than not, like fingernails on the chalkboard to me. That’s why I feel so compelled to share with you all my newest music find.

The New Velvet is a band consisting of four friends, who've been playing and performing together since high school. That speaks to me! Who didn’t want to be in a band in high school?
Their self-titled album, released in September 2011, has already received attention from popular industry websites such as, Sonicscoop, Gobbler, and

The band is now setting up shows around the US, and solidifying their presence in the music industry.

Their 4 part harmony and musical talent is pretty well demonstrated in the video Bigger Than Love.

Their music is available on iTunes, so it’s pretty easy to check them out!

They are also on FaceBook at
Or on Twitter at @TheNewVelvet

Give it a listen and let me know what you think of these guys.
