Dichotomies

by Velocity Duo

The Velocity Duo is a cutting edge, spontaneously composed vocal/bass duo featuring Lauren Lee, vocals, and Charley Sabatino, bass. The duo's debut album, Dichotomies (available here or here), is a set of inviting, lyricless stories that encourage the listener to "choose their own adventure". From New York Music Daily:

"These short, improvised vignettes transcend the question of whether or not this is jazz or indie classical or whatever mix of genres it might be: it's just good, fun music."

 

Videos of live performances can be found on Youtube. You can also follow us on Facebook and Soundcloud

If you are a musician, or if you know any musicians, you know that creating an album is hard work, long hours, and a lot of money. My trio's journey with "The Consciousness Test" has been a good one so far: the tracks are done, reviews and a tour are in the works, but the work isn't done yet. Two of the biggest hurdles still face us: marketing and promoting the album and funding the creation of the merchandise. 

We are currently asking for monetary assistance in getting over these two hurdles. All contributions starting at $1 will receive a digital download of "The Consciousness Test"; other perks are listed below. 10% of the funds raised will be given directly to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
