Velvet & Stone are an indie-folk band from Devon, UK. They combine rich vocals, acoustic guitar, keys and violin, to give an original take on a traditional genre. Drawing upon personal stories, melancholy Celtic tales and landscapes, they create a serene, and haunting sound that is difficult to forget.
Their debut record – The Storm – was released in April 2016 and has received critical acclaim and airplay across the UK and internationally. With glowing accolades for their live shows, the band have quickly built upon this success playing at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Sidmouth Folk Festival, WonderFields, Somersault, Balcony TV, and regularly gigging across their native South West.
In 2017, with a performance at Celtic Connections already under their belt, the band are set for an exciting year ahead. Fronted by Lara Snowdon on vocals and guitar, and Kathryn Tremlett on violin and piano, the band are looking forward to returning to the studio to record a second EP in April 2017. Keep an eye on this website, and their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud and YouTube for the latest updates. The Storm EP is available on iTunes , Spotify, Amazon Music and Google Music.
