Crush Velvet

Crush Velvet

Both born in New York with two very different backgrounds, Carrie Lynn and Diane Bostick brought their creative influences together to form Crush Velvet. With two distinct vocals, both share in vocal harmonies, creative writing and musical composition. In addition with two great musicians at their side, and sometimes a host of many friends from the local folk clubs, Crush Velvet weaves their way through Peter, Paul, and Mary sounds with an Indigo Girls modern vibe. Both Carrie Lynn and Diane Bostick share many afternoons crafting their original songs which range from the gutsy blueness of "High End of the Low", the solemn "And I Whispered", to their witty and catchy "Wholly Socks". (Everyone experiences a favorite pair of wholly socks). Lots of "pun" intended there. With Rob Koppleman adding a country flavor with his banjo picking and Nick Jason adding a smooth low end with his bass, spirited recorder playing and playful mandolin sounds, Crush Velvet becomes an acoustic 60´s throw back band. This is not a folk act where the audience sits back. You will be one of the folks singing along and having fun. While some of their songs may hang shadows they also play upbeat and thought provoking themes as well. Crush Velvet are like the name, smooth to the touch and intense to the heart.

Diane is a one time winner of the Bud Lite Comedy Competition in NY, was able to fuse her years of vocal training and songwriting in a new South Florida venue in 1997. The comic sense stayed and the passion for writing remains in force in a new music expression, Crush Velvet. Working alongside Carrie Lynn, she hopes to get a higher musical ranking than once being the third place winner in a Kentucky Fried Chicken songwriting competition which sent it´s first place winner to Nashville. Performed at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles and the Improve in New York City. Diane specializes in singing and writing, theatrical and comedy performances.

Carrie Lynn grew up surrounded by acoustic folk and artistic players. At an early age played piano, guitar, danced and studied art. Writing many poems and stories daydreamed of creating music. Miami, Florida became the great inspiration. Spending ample time learning about the music recording industry, Carrie searched for the perfect sounds and vocals from a wide variety of local performers and has been seen performing at many events and venues.

Influences like Neil Young, Stevie Nicks, and Bonnie Raitt. Rock and Roll was just a stepping stone away. The appreciation for obscure and unusual songs became the focus. Carrie plays guitar, harmonica, percussion, and specializes in vocal harmonies.
