Velvet & Stone are an indie-folk band from Devon, UK. They combine rich vocals, acoustic guitar, keys and violin, to give an original take on a traditional genre. Drawing upon personal stories, melancholy tales and rugged landscapes, they create a serene and haunting sound that is difficult to forget.

Their debut record The Storm was released in April 2016 and has received critical acclaim and airplay across the UK and internationally. With glowing accolades for their live shows, the band have quickly built upon this success, playing at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Sidmouth Folk Festival, Somersault Festival, and Balcony TV, and they regularly gig across venues in their native South West.

In 2017, with a critically lauded performance at Celtic Connections already under their belt, the band are set for an exciting year. Founding band members Lara Snowdon (vocals and guitar), and Kathryn Tremlett (violin and piano), are joined by Roger Styles on guitar and vocals. The band released their new single ‘Raise Your Ghosts‘ on 17th August 2017, followed by their ‘Embers EP‘ on 13th October!
