ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Black Velvet Express is releasing their debut EP Where the Stars Kiss the Moon. This EP is a collection of original alternative rock compositions including the hauntingly beautiful title track “Where the Stars Kiss the Moon” that tells the story of Michael Dane Star Traveler and his quest to bring peace to the universe through the power of music. The Cd contains a free digital copy of the story. You may also see the story at BlackVelvetExpress.com
Dane and Michael began playing together when Dane came to Baltimore to become part of a group called Voices. A concept band consisting of musicians from surrounding cities on the east coast. Both Michael and Dane with their love for music in common, began a friendship which has lasted through the years and has resulted in the collaboration on this EP. We hope that people dogs and aliens get as big a “Bang Baby” out of this release as we had making it. Join us and take a star filled journey through the “Distant Lights”

“... I love the throbbing groove and spooky slide ... It sounds as if a hybrid of 60’s San Franciso Ballroom Rock and some Pre-Punk Snarl from NYC was tossed into a Spin Cycle with 70’s London Glam ... Michael Molenda Guitar Player Magazine ...”

Real Good Listening
Different from today's sound. Real good listening! My favorite is When Heaven Comes. The story book which is available on the CD is very creative. Hollywood needs to get ahold of this for their next SCIFI movie. Especially Where The Stars Kiss The Moon track.!!!!

Where The Stars Kiss The Moon
Where The Stars Kiss The Moon is an excellent concept EP/album containing several alternative rock/pop gems.  The opening title track is a song of real beauty, a moving story about love and loss "out here in deep, dark space."  Based on the classic 1956 Sci-Fi movie Forbidden Planet, it's a perfect marriage of lyrics and music with a haunting melody you won't forget (love the eerie intro!)  It's later reprised as an acoustic version with an equally haunting sound and feel.  If you love Bowie's "Space Oddity," you should love this one, too.

 "Simple Love Song" and "When Heaven Comes" are straight-ahead rockers with blistering guitar solos, throbbing bass lines and pounding drums ("Heaven," especially, has a fierce, driving intensity) while "Distant Lights" has a darker and more pensive mood and feel to it (love the new intro and arrangement on this one, along with the eastern-flavored sitar-like solo). 

 "Lullaby Dream" is the closing track.  It's an instrumental using guitars only which shift back and forth between G and D major, with layered chordal harmonies and a clean, sparkling solo - a pretty gem of a song with an uplifting vibe - a good note to end things on.

Included on the enhanced CD is a free copy of the Sci-Fi story "Michael Dane Star Traveler."  Follow Michael as he travels from galaxy to galaxy on his quest for the Notes, and check out the fantastic drawings of Ron Komber along the way.
