VELVET STARLINGS
Velvet Starlings is a 60s infused garage rock ‘n’ roll band hailing from Los Angeles and the beach cities of Southern California.
 
Velvet Starlings is becoming a staple in the blossoming neo psychedelic garage rock scene on the West Coast, with several tours under their belt, internationally and across the country.  The band was founded by young lead singer, guitarist & organ player Christian Gisborne who is known for his dynamic live stage performance, concert attendance record and impressive Lego collection. Velvet Starlings is rounded out by drummer Foster Poling and bassist Hudson Polling. In 2019, the group met in line outside of a Cage The Elephant show - and with their shared love of The Who & Sponge Bob, they decided to jam in a “beach fuzz psych garage” direction with a big cheeky nod to the UK invasion.
 
During the fall of 2020, Christian Gisborne produced, engineered and mixed Velvet Starlings’ debut LP, titled Technicolour Shakedown, which reflects a variety of rock n roll influences, from Thee Oh Sees, Artic Monkeys to early Jack White. The LP drops in June, with the first single, “Back Of The Train” out on April 9, 2021, and two follow up singles, “Technicolour Shakedown” and “She Said (She Said)”. 
 
Velvet Starlings’ previous EPs have received high marks globally, with each hitting #5 on FMQB Specialty Radio Charts, #1 on KROQ Local’s Only, BBC in the UK and many international radio stations online and terrestrial.  Velvet Starlings is set to play Canadian Music Week in 2021 and has been featured in many international and domestic festivals, including Summerfest in Milwaukee. Christian Gisborne and Velvet Starlings are endorsed by Ernie Ball.
