Velvet Tones was conceived in the Fall of 2013, by front woman Carrie Brzezinski and bass player Erik Lindenmoyer. The two met in the summer of 2012, when Carrie was asked to join Erik’s previous band, The Nameless Few (also a Shorebets act). When the group disbanded the summer of 2013 due to members retiring, Carrie and Erik decided to proceed forward with their love of playing live. Carrie had always had a love of writing and performing original music as well. With Erik at the helm behind the scenes, the two are now writing and recording their own music collectively, with an EP currently in the works.
Both Carrie and Erik have strong rock influences but each bring another side to the table. Erik’s love of reggae and Carrie’s love of dance and singer/songwriting creates a unique sound with a smooth groove.
