CRUSHED VELVET & THE VELVETEERS feat. BROTHER GOODLOVE: As Far As We Know + video

CRUSHED VELVET & THE VELVETEERS feat. BROTHER GOODLOVE:  As Far As We KnowNew from Crushed Velvet & The Velveteers is the retro-soul message of latest single As Far As We Know featuring the appropriately velvety-smooth vocals of Brother Goodlove. That’ll be a message of peace and harmony, by the way – a sort of musical balm for all the divisiveness of late, if you will, reminding people of their similarities and the possibilities inherent in working together. Crushed Velvet & The Velveteers is, of course, a project of Alan Evans (a.k.a. Soulive drummer and Vintage League Music label owner) and it turns out Evans originally wrote the song with Brother Goodlove in mind for a different Vintage League project but when he heard the demo of what he now describes as, “one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written,” and the lyrics that Goodlove had penned, he decided it was going on the forthcoming CV & V LP. The video features ol’ BG having a wander round DC which frequently serves as a backdrop to his own lyrics writ large (literally) and includes footage taken during Black Lives Matter protests.
