Act Profile

Blue Velvets

Two strong melodic voicalists playing a mix of stripped-down, catchy acoustic melodies and mellow, finger-picking, groove-rich favourites (such as Corinne Bailey Rae's 'Put Your Records On' and James Taylor's 'You've Got A Friend') and current chart hits (such as Darwin Deez's 'Constellations and Florence & the Machine's 'You've Got The Love') performed with backing tracks with a full band sound.
Individually, Carrie has toured with Hot Chocolate and Seal, plus recordings for several well known artists including Brandon Flowers, Ami Nuttal, Nick Heyward, and Geraldo Pino. She sang the International Football Song 2004 Champions of the World and famed dance track 'Do What you Feel'. Tim has toured with artists as diverse as Midnight Oil and Men at Work to Rolf Harris.
