Velvetblohm has been making waves in the music industry over the past few months with their unique shows and debut single.

Now this duo, which consists of the extremely gifted musicians Jan Blohm and Ryno Velvet, is back on everyone’s lips with their second release.

KAAP, a delicate contemporary rock song written by the artists themselves, mostly deals with a holiday romance and the sentiment that goes with it when it has to come to an end. 

“The characters in KAAP share feelings of sadness and longing they are experiencing because of the distance between them, but also wish each other well,” they explain. “We wanted to approach the song from a storytelling perspective and that was the inspiration behind it – an uncomplicated story of disappointment, but also renewal.”

Just like with their previous release, Tussen Die Lyne which still features on several music charts, this captivating song was also produced by Tertius Human. 

Although Blohm and Velvet toured together in 2006 and 2009, they only came up with the idea of launching an official Velvetblohm act at the end of 2021. With the help of Vonk Musiek’s Kobie Koen, what started out as a unique way of sharing their biggest hits with fans grew into an opportunity to record and release new material.

The duo looks forward to sharing more of their music with fans and plans on releasing their debut album soon.

When Jan is not on stage, he enjoys painting and sculpting. He is also the owner of Jan Blohm Art Gallery and Blohmhuis Theatre, as well as an online shop situated in Strand.

“Blohmhuis hosts intimate shows for visitors and artists, and it is such a privilege to realize this dream. I look forward to seeing it grow,” he says.

When he is not singing, Ryno is also a talented graphic designer, photographer and producer. 

Hy shares: “This year, I have written and produced a lot of music. In addition to collaborating with Jan, I have also started working on a rock album with Fred den Hartog, Middelvinger and Albert Frost and am writing songs for various other artists.”

KAAP builds on the successful foundation established by these versatile men and makes you look forward to what they have planned for the future.

“The song is a relatable, bittersweet story that leaves something to the imagination – it is a recipe that not only entertains listeners, but also makes them think,” they conclude.
