ABOUT VELOURS: An electrifying mix of R+B, funk, pop, reggae & smooth soul, Val’s fourth solo album, Velours, was recorded in the South of France and NYC. Harkening back to old-school days of recording live with top musicians, and singing live lead vocals while recording, in this breathtaking, spell-binding performance Ghent fully unleashes her 3 and 1/2 octave vocal range, powerful keyboard chops and her distinctive voice that can hurtle into the stratosphere, whisper in your ear or fall into a low croon at will. Velours is sure to become Valerie’s most iconic album yet.
Velours releases October 21, 2016. Pre-order on iTunes & CDBaby Sept 23, 2016.
