Crushed Velvet & the Velveteers is the alter ego of US multi-instrumentalist and producer Alan Evans (Soulive / Ae3) who is back with another taste from his upcoming full-length on Vintage League Music with new single “As Far As We Know feat. Brother GoodLove”.
“As Far As We Know” is a soul song dripping with emotion and power on which Evans plays bass, drums and guitar: “I originally wrote the music back in May 2019 with another VLM project in mind, but I knew I wanted to have Stephane (Brother GoodLove) singing on it from the beginning”, he states.“The original working title for the song was “Az Far As We Know” as a nod to Aztec Sun. I didn’t realize that Stephane would turn that into such beautiful and powerful lyrics”.
Born in Montreal to Cameroonian parents, Brother GoodLove was raised in a multicultural household and community where music featured prominently. Now residing in Washington D.C, he draws from a wide palette of musical traditions, from African-American to African, Caribbean, Latin American and European. His music is an exploration of his identity and sense of self, an expression of his personal views, a reflection on the world around him and a contribution to the future he believes in.
“As Far As We Know feat. Brother GoodLove” is the second single to be released from Crushed Velvet & The Velveteers upcoming album, and follows up from first single “Good Thang feat. Kim Dawson” released in June.
