Lush, dreamy, soulful, nutritious, and pop. These are the five words that the guys of The New Velvet would say define their music start to finish. Friends since High School, Dustin, Robby, Sheep, and Ben have been collaborating together, ultimately forming The New Velvet, one of the most popular up and coming bands ready to take over the airwaves. With thousands of fans worldwide, also known as ‘velveters,’ awaiting to see what they have in store next, this young but not amateur group has been touring nationwide, having shared the bill with artists such as the likes of; J.Cole, Natasha Bedingfield, and Plain White T’s just to name a few.
The bands recent collaborations with YouTube sensations Esmee Denters, Savannah Outen, and Alyssa Bernal have already drawn in millions of views. Not only has TNV created YouTube videos with other artists, but they have also released numerous videos, from an array of covers songs to original material of their own.
Even though some of their musical inspirations are John Mayer, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Maroon 5, Third Eye Blind, and Coldplay, TNV has collectively created music, which is a pleasant combination of all of those genres in one. Currently they are hard at work in the studio, looking to release either a single, EP, or album in the near future. In the mean time, they are going to continue to create more videos, while touring and performing, so be sure to look out for them in a city near you.
Having performed both internationally and domestically, from Ukraine for a special performance at a private Ecko Unlimited event, to performing at the Bamboozle Festival at the Meadowlands, TNV has just started to become a staple in the music industry.
