The Velveteers are an American Rock outfit from Boulder, Colorado
that is the epiphany of punk with the aggressive sound and grungy wisdom.
that transcends through the Siren like power of Demi Demitro’s (frontwomen/lead guitar) voice. Through fuzzed out guitar riffs and thunderous drums they lure their audience with vibes that come right out of a classic horror flick. In 2016 at just a year old and not even an ounce of music released, The Velveteers embarked on their first tour supporting Los Angeles duo Deap Vally, playing sold out theaters across the UK. Since then The Velveteers self-released their first six-song EP in February of 2018 and have been touring around the USA and will be returning to the UK in October.
Soul, sass and sparks collide to create one of the most exciting female singers of our generation. Blending rock ‘n’ roll and blues influences with a hypnotic brood and incredible musical talent; Emme Woods has curated a truly bespoke 60s sound that bangs the drum for everything that’s great about the Scottish music scene right now. Simply put, Emme Woods is an original. Emme Woods is feminine + ballsy, grungy + angelic, sultry + brazen and all the while with a strong grasp of the lonely-hearts club.
Previously performing under the moniker “Five Cousins”, Freakwave built up a considerable following in Glasgow, this much was made clear when their maiden display as Freakwave at Celtic Connections sold out in January. Prepare to be whisked away by some intoxicating vocal performances, which, backed by some woozy instrumentals.
