George Clinton sparks a Phat Blunt with Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf
Feed The Wolf, the sophomore release by the New York rockers features multiple collaborations with the legendary Dr. Funkenstein (8.23.19)
"Miss Velvet's voice is the definition of Rock n Roll." - GEORGE CLINTON
By: Isotopia Records
Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf, like the Clinton produced Red Hot Chili Peppers before them, were influenced by the seminal funk of Parliament/Funkadelic and have counted Clinton as a musical hero. That reverence led them to Detroit where they recorded their critically acclaimed debut album Bad Get Some at the legendary United Sound recording studio. While on tour with Clinton in Europe in 2018, the band took time to record tracks for what would become Feed The Wolf at Ireland's Grouse Lodge, the world-class studio and creative setting known for hosting Michael Jackson and R.E.M. When asked why he decided to join the wolf pack from New York, Clinton simply shares "Miss Velvet's voice is the definition of Rock n Roll" echoing the views of global rock critics who have drawn comparisons from Janice Joplin to Robert Plant concluding "her voice is an instrument in its own right." (Hear2Zen, Australia)
"When she (Miss Velvet) starts to sing and the tone is a perfect blend of Janis Joplin, Nina Simone and Lucinda Williams with a little Etta James thrown in." - The Examiner
Constance Hauman shares her unique perspective wearing multiple roles as Isotopia label head, record producer and MD for the band. "Our journey to Feed The Wolf has been incredibly exciting. We offer a huge dose of gratitude to George Clinton for his wholehearted embrace of the band and agreeing to join us on this record. Our lives and our music were transformed by the Funk. Long live Dr. Funkenstein!"
