From the Promoter
The Velveteins are a rock n' roll band consisting of members Spencer Morphy (vocals/guitar), Addison Hiller (percussion) and Dean Kheroufi originally from Edmonton, Canada. Their latest work " A Hot Second With The Velveteins" was produced by Lincoln Parish and described as "a collision of the Kinks and the Libertines, rollicking garage, moody surf and pop classicism with a rough edge" (EXCLAIM!). Their distinctive style of heavy guitar pop has translated into raucous and energetic shows opening for larger acts such as July Talk, Elephant Stone, Milo Greene and Michael Rault and appearing across Canada, America, and the UK.
Formed by front man Spencer Morphy, The Velveteins were officially realized in the summer of 2014, after his return from time vagabonding around Australia. The band recorded and self released an EP and soon caught the ear of ex-member of Cage The Elephant, Lincoln Parish. They flew down to Nashville and cut "A Hot Second with The Velveteins" and inked a deal with the Canadian expansion of UK Label Fierce Panda in early 2016. The band followed the release with a 30-date tour across three countries which included stops at The Great Escape, London, Toronto, and Los Angeles. The video for single "Hanging From The Ceiling" was also featured on heavy rotation on Much Music. Set to release their debut LP in early 2017, The Velveteins have already proven to be gaining momentum with their vibrant captivating records and thrilling live performances.
Cayley Thomas is a singer and guitarist from Edmonton, Alberta. She just got back the inaugural Singer/Songwriter Residency at The Banff Centre and is excited to share these new songs with you.
This mellow, ethereal psych-rock envelops the listener in a warm embrace and creates an intoxicating sway. A relatively new group of dreamy minstrels that we're sure will age quite nicely.
