Biography

Kirstyn Folvig & Ryan Velvetine were born in one of the worlds periodic changes between day and night, maybe thousands of miles apart and maybe in different headspaces all together. They spent the next fifteen years trying to be who they wanted to be and dealing with everyone elses lies in their own ways. Though, not exactly being the greatest exponents of the truth themselves, they got their share of bruises and cracked ribs. Ryan picked up a guitar and a typewriter and Kirst’ started singing. So one day the sun went down, night began to rise in the usual way, and fate met them underneath the soft white stars, as fate sometimes does, and isn’t is just grand when it does? After months of meditation and heavy drinking, The Velvet Fringes were born.

Folvig & Velvetine’s songs generally dwell on one or a combination of six subjects: heartbreak in relationships that leads to murder, outdated modes of transportation, animals that can talk, winter, blood, and howls of anguish disguised as common hello’s. This list changes every time you ask them about it, but the heartbreak is always there. The sexual tension between characters in your average Velvet Fringes song could split the atom if the power could be harnessed, but it can’t, so forget it. Now you know what we know. Go forth and sin no more.

The month ahead of us will see the release of The Velvet Fringes debut self-released record. Called Poughkeepsie (Poe-Kips-Ee) and containing ten songs, the LP is set to be the toast of the currently under-fed acoustic scene, uniting indie-lovers and south-west vampires alike. The tracks you’ll hear are;
