Like scorpions who distinguish between light and dark to navigate by moonlight, Baby Velvet negotiates the low light of self-doubt with an innate sense of purpose. Scorpions populate her dreamscape, wilting roses portents of heartbreak, warnings, and change.
Hannah Crofts, under her new moniker Baby Velvet, is on a mission to find whether you always get what you deserve. With St Jude whispering in her ear, Crofts is welcoming a stranger into her living room, or standing on the curb with her thumb out, or fossicking for treasure in the bargain bin. Her soaring harmonies and aching lyrics are gloriously gritty and heart-wrenching but always familiar with hard-won reflections on the artist’s life.
