– Blue Velvet is at the crossroad of two distinct worlds, the unlikely marriage between a smooth classical voice and a raw electric guitar.
Blue Velvet is at the crossroad of two distinct worlds, the unlikely marriage between a smooth classical voice and a raw electric guitar.
The emphasis is on the melody, with minimalist ballads floating in-between jazz and pop that makes for a timeless soundscape.
The repertoire includes standards of the 50's (Cry Me A River, I've got a crush on you, Lullaby of Birdland, I'm through with love, Summertime, etc ...), music from movies (Bagdad Cafe , Kill Bill, Bond movies ...), bossa nova and pop songs rearranged (Roxanne, Toxic, Wonderwall, Call me ...). The link between all these titles is the universal theme of LOVE !
The result is a clever mix of eclecticism, spleen and obsolete romanticism, a music for lovers, a music for late night ambiance, a music for the soul !
