"Miss Velvet's voice is the definition of Rock n Roll." - GEORGE CLINTON

NEW YORK - Aug. 20, 2019 - PRLog -- When it comes to music legends there's none greater than the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy Lifer George Clinton. New York rock band Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf have been touring the globe with Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic since 2017. Two years and 100 plus concerts later, Clinton teams up on record with Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf for their sophomore album Feed The Wolf (Isotopia Records) due 8/23/2019 via all digital platforms and select retailers nationwide on CD and Vinyl. The lead single "Phat Blunt ft. George Clinton" features the incendiary vocals of Miss Velvet and tight grooves of the Blue Wolf amidst a collection which Music Talkers(UK)  describes as a "sensational, soulful, electric setlist."

Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf, like the Clinton produced Red Hot Chili Peppers before them, were influenced by the seminal funk of Parliament/Funkadelic and have counted Clinton as a musical hero. That reverence led them to Detroit where they recorded their critically acclaimed debut album Bad Get Some at the legendary United Sound recording studio. While on tour with Clinton in Europe in 2018, the band took time to record tracks for what would become Feed The Wolf at Ireland's Grouse Lodge, the world-class studio and creative setting known for hosting Michael Jackson and R.E.M. When asked why he decided to join the wolf pack from New York, Clinton simply shares "Miss Velvet's voice is the definition of Rock n Roll" echoing the views of global rock critics who have drawn comparisons from Janice Joplin to Robert Plant concluding "her voice is an instrument in its own right." (Hear2Zen, Australia)

"When she (Miss Velvet) starts to sing and the tone is a perfect blend of Janis Joplin, Nina Simone and Lucinda Williams with a little Etta James thrown in." - The Examiner

Constance Hauman shares her unique perspective wearing multiple roles as Isotopia label head, record producer and MD for the band. "Our journey to Feed The Wolf has been incredibly exciting. We offer a huge dose of gratitude to George  Clinton for his wholehearted embrace of the band and agreeing to join us on this record. Our lives and our music were transformed by the Funk. Long live Dr. Funkenstein!"

Feed The Wolf (Isotopia Records) is available Friday August 23rd. Fans can pre-order the album today from iTunes and receive three tracks, including "Phat Blunt ft. George Clinton", "Nasty Freak ft.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Feb 22, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Feb 22, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Feb 22, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
