Heartland Soul is Red Velvet’s long-awaited second album. Red Velvet is singer Deirdre Murphy, songwriter Les Ray and their band of talented multi-instrumentalists from very diverse musical backgrounds: Gene Thunderbolt from classical, blues and rock, Mike Udin from folk, pop and rock and rock drummer Colin R Smith.
Red Velvet perform the songs of the outsiders, the outlaws and the dispossessed from the folk tradition that these times demand (the “red” part), along with a selection of songs of the heart with a jazzy, edgy, bluesy feel (the “velvet” part). The result is a passionate and sensual set.
