SLV is the musical project of singer-songwriter Sandra Lilia Velásquez.
After recording three studio albums and touring extensively with her band Pistolera, her solo debut EP, Dig Deeper, was released on February 12, 2013 on her own Luchadora label. The four song recording was produced by ten-time Grammy nominee and legendary bassist Meshell Ndegeocello, who plays bass on three of the songs and co-wrote one. She debuted her band at the famed Joe’s Pub in February of 2013 of which music site Feast Of Music hailed, “SLV transported the audience to a different time and place… her energy blanketed the audience… Leaving the deepest impression was SLV’s absolute authenticity.” After a successful east coast tour she is set to tour the west coast in October of 2013. SLV’s second music video for the song “Painted Pictures” recently premiered on USA TODAY. She has also been featured on NPR and WNYC. Her band is currently a trio with a laptop and fans can expect what the New York Music Daily boasts in their live review, “[SLV] channeled minute fractions of the spectrum between boudoir seduction and full-blown angst and every emotion in between.
