Introducing Velvet Negroni

Meet Velvet Negroni – experimental R&B vocalist and songwriter, based in Minneapolis. His debut album NEON BROWN is out 30 August on 4AD. Listen to first single ‘CONFETTI’ here.

Velvet Negroni is the alter-ego of creative polymath Jeremy Nutzman. Raised in an outer suburb of the Twin Cities, Jeremy – a black kid adopted into a white evangelical Christian family – split his formative years between classical piano lessons and late night jam sessions. It’s a duality that permeates every corner of his music. He thrives in the cross section between R&B and indie rock.

He has toured with close friend Bon Iver, accumulated writing credits for Kanye West and Kid Cudi, and is now ready strike out on his solo debut.
