This album is dedicated to women, and the female spirit, all the world over. The world needs your wisdom, strength and compassion more than ever before if we are to survive as a species. Step up and speak your truth. Men: Sit down, shut up, get out of the way and take notes. You had your chance. Look where that got us.
Velourium is a cross between "velour" and "museum": so, a place you can go and see (hear) beautiful, soft things. That is this record.
Although some parts aren't so soft! This CD ranges from party dance-floor bangers to moody down-tempo introspective soothers, so prepare for a wild ride.
I made this album across the span of several years with various female singers under drastically different circumstances. Some are old friends, some new, and one I cast in an space rock opera! I give great thanks to each of them for contributing their talents and voices to this project.
Enjoy. And celebrate the women in your life. They are our strength.
