About Velvet Blue

Velvet Blue

is the recording and performing moniker for songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Derek Schanche (two-time ASCAP Award Winner for CBS-TV show "Rules of Engagement" theme song "How Many Ways" by Senor Happy and Boston Music Award Nominee for Best Debut Album).

His brand new single release "Fun Ctrl" is provocative and haunting.

What started out as a t-shirt and jeans home demo written by Derek Schanche and recorded in Garageband by Patrick Emswiler, this new song was taken to The Cave to record drums and feedback guitar with Danny Naim (Beyoncé, Rihanna).

It was then mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies).

"Fun Ctrl" also features Pete Donnelly (The Figgs, Graham Parker) on bass guitar and Kelly King on drums.

Produced by Derek Schanche and Co-produced by Patrick Emswiler.
