National Velvet is named after the Elizabeth Taylor movie. Six months after the formation of the band they released an independent, self-titled EP featuring the radio-played "Flesh Under Skin".
In 1989 '68 Hours' garnered them a CFNY-FM CASBY Award. In 1990 they released 'Courage'.
National Velvet played numerous times at Zaphod's on Rideau Street to sellout crowds. They've recently re-formed (not reformed!) and have sold out shows in Toronto and Hamilton. We're excited to have them back.
