Fresh from Byron Bay Bluesfest on Monday, Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf mesmerised Melbourne’s Forum on Wednesday with their brand of sultry NY grit, fused with funky baselines and epic horns.
Miss Velvet’s vocals are raw power, often compared to Robert Plant’s iconic vocal range and for good reason, her voice is an instrument in its own right. Each band member had a chance to shine in solos throughout the set & continued to keep the crowd under their spell.
The range and fusion of sounds embraced by the group is impressive, taking you on an atmospheric musical journey with a sense of performance and showmanship that kept the crowd on its toes for the whole set.
Miss Velvet & the Blue Wolf, we don’t know you very well yet in Australia but we should. Looking forward to the next time you rock Melbourne’s socks off!
