Title - 'Velvet Groove'
Artist - Eric Valentine & Velvet Groove

This coming Valentine’s Day takes on greater significance for Eric Valentine who will drop his longtime-coming labor of love, Velvet Groove on his namesake day.

This collection of soul-soaked urban grooves and sophisticated contemporary jazz stylings is the first release from the drummer-multi-instrumentalist-songwriter-producer’s Velvet Groove, a creative community of musicians and recording artists spreading love and positivity through music and collaboration.

Drummer/Producer Eric Valentine's 1st single from his much anticipated project - one that features one of today's top charting artists, the sax of Keith McKelley - also brings to the fore the combined talents of: Adam Hawley (guitar); (piano); Benjamin Shepherd (bass); and Darrell Crooks on rhythm guitar.

1. 'Back to the Groove'
2. 'E. Love (Everlasting Love)'
3. 'Velvet Groove'
4. 'Back in the Day'
5. 'Mr. Z'
6. 'That Guy'
7. 'Velvet Groove Reprise'
8. 'Mi Sol'
9. 'Tis So Sweet' (for Wayman Tisdale)
10. 'Joy Inside My Tears'
11. 'Sixth Sense'
12. 'Joy Inside My Tears (Reprise)'
13. 'Reflections (Back in the Day Reprise)'

This delightful, atmospheric 13-track album brings us ten full songs and three reprises, all filled with beautiful, lush melodies and glorious R&B and soul vibes.

Inclusive of Valentine's wife on some tracks - 'E. Love' and 'Back in the Day,' each and every track is a showcase of one of the finest voices in the business today.

Featuring originals throughout, save for a stunningly delightful, and oh-so fresh take on Stevie Wonder’s brilliant 'Joy Inside My Tears,' it also comes complete with members of Wonder’s very own horn section in the mix.

Chock full of all those smooth jazz instrumental sounds mixing sweetly with Valentine's very own soulful vocals - everything that you've come to expect from the man, of course - Velvet Groove is just perfect as being the music you put on for that very special night you have planned, this upcoming February 14th.
