Velvet Water was formed sitting in Bass player, Collin Wallaces back yard in good old Ruckerville KY. With other members Jason Howard on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Wes Faulkner vocals and lead guitar, and Snook Hansel on mandolin. After playing together on and off in a number of other bands across all genres of music, the guys in Velvet Water decided it was time to go back to the roots of their good old Kentucky home. Being from Kentucky with it's rich tradition in bluegrass and porch pick'n music is a big honor. VW has an interesting history touring around with some great bands. Goose Creek Symphony has to be one of the most well known bands the guys in VW ever had the honor to play with. Charlie Gearhart from GCS once labled them as acoustic goose.
