CRUSHED VELVET & THE VELVETEERS · AS FAR AS WE KNOW (feat. Brother GoodLove) -SINGLE-

Label:  Vintage League Music

July 17, 2020

Crushed Velvet & the Velveteers is the alter ego of US multi-instrumentalist and producer Alan Evans (Soulive / Ae3) who is back with another taste from his upcoming full-length on Vintage League Music with new single "As Far As We Know feat. Brother GoodLove".  

 "As Far As We Know" is a soul song dripping with emotion and power on which Evans plays bass, drums and guitar: “I originally wrote the music back in May 2019 with another VLM project in mind, but I knew I wanted to have Stephane (Brother GoodLove) singing on it from the beginning", he states. "The original working title for the song was "Az Far As We Know” as a nod to Aztec Sun.  I didn’t realize that Stephane would turn that into such beautiful and powerful lyrics".

 Born in Montreal to Cameroonian parents, Brother GoodLove was raised in a multicultural household and community where music featured prominently. Now residing in Washington D.C, he draws from a wide palette of musical traditions, from African-American to African, Caribbean, Latin American and European. His music is an exploration of his identity and sense of self, an expression of his personal views, a reflection on the world around him and a contribution to the future he believes in. 

 "As Far As We Know feat. Brother GoodLove" is the second single to be released from Crushed Velvet & The Velveteers upcoming album

 "As Far As We Know" es una canción de soul llena de emoción y poder en la que Evans toca el bajo, la batería y la guitarra: "Originalmente escribí la música en mayo de 2019 con otro proyecto de VLM en mente, pero sabía que quería tener Stephane (Brother GoodLove) cantando desde el principio", afirma." El título del trabajo original de la canción era "Az Far As We Know" como un guiño a Aztec Sun. No me di cuenta de que Stephane convertiría eso en letras tan hermosas y poderosas ".

Ahora reside en Washington D.C y se inspira en una amplia gama de tradiciones musicales, desde afroamericanas hasta africanas, caribeñas, latinoamericanas y europeas.
