Biography

There are multiple artists who have used the name Blue Velvet:

1. A rock band from Volendam, The Netherlands
2. An industrial band from Japan
3. An indie rock band from Austin, Texas
4. A Japanese duo

1. Blue Velvet, named after the cultfilm from David Lynch, was formed in 2004 in the classic way:
six friends from school decided to form a band. Their average age back then was about 16 years old and their repertoire contained covers from artists like Pearl Jam, The Black Crowes and Talking Heads. While playing these covers in bars and clubs in Volendam they slowly added songs of their own. Nowadays Blue Velvet built their own repertoire with songs of their own. They released their first album, called PUSH!, on the 18th of June 2011. Blue Velvet are: Jan de Witte (vocals/guitar), Nick Schilder (guitar/vocals), Peter Steur (keyboards), Kees Mol (guitar), Ramon Tol (drums), and Erik Veerman (bass guitar).

2. Blue Velvet was born in 1999 from the meeting between Dohg (electro voice, guitar and programming) and Andy Head (electro guitar). The basic philosophy of those musicians was to take inspirations from the industrial music already in commerce like Ministry, NIN, Einsturzende Neubauten, ecc… but with new characteristics.
