(July 15, 2020) In the early days of SoulTracks, we had a major thing going for R&B band Soulive, and that love has continued to this day. And Soulive co-founder Alan Evans had a side project that was also something special. His alter ego, Crushed Velvet & the Velveteers, released a concept album back in 2011, but then stayed on the sidelines for nearly a decade.

Evans brings the act out of retirement this year, with a series of singles, including the new soulful ballad, “As Far As We Know.” It has a strong early 70s vibe to it that should appeal to both The Memphis and Chicago soul crowds. We just love it.

We’re proud to present the World Premiere of “As Far As We Know.” Check it out below and welcome Crushed Velvet to SoulTracks!
