Gavin Bradley is an award winning Canadian Songwriter and Producer based in Toronto, and who has worked with Nelly Furtado, Tori Amos and Velvet Code himself. This is a reunion of sorts for Velvet, as it has been over 12 years since they have collaborated on material.
"I'm extremely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Gavin again, as it is an opportunity for us to sit together in the studio and truly collaborate," says Mr. Code. "I look forward to hearing what comes of our work together after all these years. Truly a magical opportunity!"
Velvet Code's debut single, "Break The Silence" is set for worldwide release on Kobalt/AWAL later this summer.
Velvet Code was in Los Angeles this week at the famous Westlake Studios where MIchael Jackson's "Bad" was created, mixing parts of "Break The Silence" with legendary mixer Robi Banerji, Producer Rob Bryton, and Westlake engineer Scott Kelly.
Having worked with Rob and Robi before, Velvet was thrilled to be reconnecting two people he calls dear friends, on his first single in five years.
"Since this song is the most honest discovery I've made of me, it made sense to bring in my friend and esteemed colleagues, Rob and Robi into the project. They are all heart. Scott is a young talented engineer who had great ideas as well, so I am glad we were all able to collaborate."

David Cash, a talented video director, who recently joined Moov Marketing Group as Director of Video, has joined the Velvet Code team for the launch of "Break The Silence". Velvet tapped David to curate, direct and produce the video which will debut a few weeks after the single drops in August.
"We are uber-excited to have Cash as part of our team. His creativity and trend awareness will help bring out the meaning behind "Break The Silence", says Velvet. "I look forward to working with David and his team!"
