“By managing all aspects of our artists’ careers, we are able to effectively grow our clients’ profiles from the inside out and properly position them for long term success. This is the Velvet Hammer philosophy.”

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, Avenged Sevenfold, Daron Malakian and Scars On Broadway, Jonathan Davis, Jerry Cantrell, Blaqk Audio, and Corella.

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