Velvet Starlings - If Life Ain't Getting You High

Velvet Starlings' single "If Life Ain't Getting you High" will take you into a state of nostalgia. The band fronted by Christian Gisborne a 15 year old indie rock singer, songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist based in Los Angeles mixes his youthful spirit and talent with the spirit of some of his inspirations including British Invasion staples, such as The Beatles, The Who and the Rolling Stones. "If Life Ain't Getting You High” is an anthem for the youth of today. Gisborne's interesting dance moves and character make us excited for his musical journey with Velvet Starlings.

Already making a name for himself at such a young age, Velvet Starlings has garnered attention from Los Angeles powerhouse KROQ as well as Sirius XM. His fusion of gritty garage blues coupled with Brit inspired rock has led to high profile festival bookings including SXSW/MEcon and Summerfest Milwaukee. Velvet Starlings’ long awaited self-titled EP on Sound x 3 Records / Rock N Rolla Records is set for release late 2018 which was a collaboration with producer songwriter Roger Gisborne (leader of 90s Brit Rock band Plastiscene), mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Black Keys). The band wear their influences proudly on their sleeves with second single, “Borrowed Time”, a clear tribute to the sixties British Invasion era, which has been receiving considerable airplay & review. "Sold Down The River”, the latest single, showcases Dylan-esque lyrics, soulful Hammond B3 organ, gritty guitars and raw blues inspired vocals.

Can't wait to see Velvet Starlings perform at our Hunnypot Live at The Mint party November 26th!
