Velvet Engine

Velvet Engine, the brainchild of Latina Northamptonian San-D Godoy, emerged enthusiastically into our lives and our hearts at the start of 2008. After numerous positive reviews, tours and radio airplay, she introduced occasional band members and in 2012, released her long-awaited debut release ‘Glimpse Of The Sun’, a collection of songs which have been described as”Yearning Pop Folk, with a sprightly butreflective soul”.

Now having released her 2nd EP ‘This Old Hat’, we can expect great things from this new breed of heart-warming pop folk music and Velvet Engine will be sure to drive it in the right direction with her catalogue of honest yet timid and catchy songs.

“Honest and heartfelt (if sometimes a little melancholy), Velvet Engine exude soft and soulful femininity. A pleasant reprise from the days tribulations, these are the perfect sounds to cup-of-tea to. True-life lyrics float effortlessly on hair raising vocals, delicate guitarmanship and “glittering glockenspiels”. This is sweet, smile inducing folky goodness…this is real poetry”. – Hoxton Amp
