Velle Weitman

Velle (rhymes with Bell) has powerful and unique sound that is bold and imaginative with influences that span the last 75 years of contemporary popular music. Her music has been described as retro, roots and soul. A bold songstress from the Central Kootenay in British Columbia (Creston, BC), Velle has toured internationally with previous acts. She captivates the audience with her unique voice – silky and velvety, raspy and sultry. With unbridled energy, she commands and transports the audience to the jazz clubs of New York and the back alleys of New Orleans. This exciting new groove feels like your favourite old jeans yet challenges the ears with its sonic depth, emotional sensitivity and arrangements by the amazingly talented producer Adrian Dolan. Backed by a nine piece show band, she showcases an eclectic mix of internationally recognized and professional musicians.
