VELVET ARMOUR is the fifth solo album from Ton Scherpenzeel, which is the successor to his previous solo endeavor, ‘The Lion’s Dream’ (2013).


Although mostly recognized as leader/composer/keyboardist of world renowned Prog rock band Kayak, Ton has also earned his place in the Netherlands theatre scene as a composer/musician, and has produced numerous albums in addition to his own projects.


“My musical heart is firmly rooted in folk, renaissance, baroque, and- of course- prog rock music,” says Ton. “Although the folky and classical elements have always been present in the music of Kayak, I couldn’t do a project like this with Kayak. 'The Lion's Dream’ and ‘Velvet Armour’ are almost inseparable from me as a person. That’s also why I have decided to do the vocals myself. I do not really see myself as a singer, but my voice reflects my music in its purest form. It’s as close to me as you’re gonna get. My music can perhaps best be described as an old soul in a new age. I am also not a purist when it comes to the use of certain instruments- they didn’t have a grand piano back in the 1500’s but if it sounds right, I’ll use it. But more often than not it’s fiddle, flute, harpsichord, or lute, or (baroque) guitar because they give the music that distinct, timeless atmosphere.”

VELVET ARMOUR, will catapult the listenter back in time to the essence of the Medieval Reniassance era. With a perfect blend of Baroque Folk and Progressive Rock ballads, the album offers a little somethnig for everyone. Pre-order today and enjoy 'My Heart Never Changed' whlle you wait for the October/2021 release of the album.
