"Dreamy hip hop infused R&B from Los Angeles"
Relax, unwind, groove, and give into the 'V-Funk'... In Velvet's music may best be described as a fusion of R&B, Neo-Soul, Jazz, Disco, and hip-hop. In Velvet is a duo consisting of Izzy Loya (Vocals/Guitar/Bass/Keyboard) & Dimitri Smith (Vocals/Piano/Synthesizer/Keyboard), two long-time friends who enjoy creating music together.
The duo has been writing songs throughout the past few years, officially releasing their music in January of 2018. The 'V-Funk' caught on quick... their first single "Poise" began getting radio play the same month it was released. In Velvet's music has been played multiple times on Los Angeles' NPR affiliate, 89.9FM KCRW. In Velvet has now been heard throughout the USA and in several different countries, including Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Brazil, Germany, and Sweden.
In Velvet's music has also been heard on TV. Their second single "Make It Right" was featured on season 9 of the CBS crime drama 'NCIS: Los Angeles'. "Poise" was also featured on KTLA-TV 5.
In Velvet is constantly creating music; always searching for unique sounds and never content... let's groove, shall we?
