About the artist
The Velveteins is an indie rock band from Edmonton, Canada. The group consists of core songwriting members Spencer Morphy and Addison Hiller. Originating as a solo project by Morphy, The Velveteins group was formed in 2014 after Morphy's extended trip Down Under during which he "fell in love with the psychedelic music and lush beaches of Australia". The band's self-produced first effort, Fresh Claws EP, was released in 2014 and marked the first collaborative work by Morphy and Hiller. A second release, A Hot Second With The Velveteins, was produced and recorded by Lincoln Parish of Cage The Elephant in his home studio in Nashville, Tennessee. This release received critical acclaim locally and internationally. The band has played CMW in Toronto and has opened for high-profile indie acts such as Milo Greene, USS, and July Talk.
