What We Do


Music is the gateway to the bridge of the soul. It is one of the few things in life that can remove barriers and join people of all backgrounds together. What we offer is a place where your heart and ears are joined together. We are here to make bliss the sound of your image. Our clients have a need for phenomenal musical composition for use on a wide range of demographics and purposes. We have the ability to tap into the soul of what's needed for each project; we do this through detailed fulfillment of customers wants and desires. "The voice must mediate between the heart and mind". 

Music in itself is behavioral; if you are feeling sadness a particular song that reminds you of a pleasant time can be played and it will cheer you up. In the same breath a song could make you feel sad. This is the wonderful thing about music it taps directly into us and can cause behavioral changes. Velvet Box Studio can push the boundaries of your actions through our rhythmic creations.

"Music does not lie. If there is something to be changed in the world. Then it can only happen through music."”

— Jim Hendrix
