Velvet Hammer


Velvet Hammer has created a modern-day standard for independent music companies. This innovative and dedicated outfit handles all of the multifaceted components of its clients’ careers, including A&R, production, marketing, branding, touring, etc…

Velvet Hammer strives for continued, long-term success – an approach that embodies the strength in elasticity, rather than a quick fix philosophy. The company’s focus is premised on worldwide, timeless brand-relevance, rather than just radio and record cycle presence.

Our management roster is home to Grammy-winning bands, and includes AFI, System Of A Down, Deftones, Alice In Chains, Korn, The Smashing Pumpkins, Code Orange, Crosses, Scars On Broadway, Jonathan Davis, William Patrick Corgan, Angels & Airwaves and Blaqk Audio.

In addition to artist management, Velvet Hammer has also signed, and released records for several artists, including OneRepublicPoison The Well and others.
