The Creation of Velvet Compass
Velvet Compass crossed continents to find the perfect duality. Jason Doherty hails from Australia where he was born and raised with a guitar in hand until he finally hopped a few rather large ponds and planted his roots in Denver, CO. Faith Maronn was born and raised in the frigid winters of Wisconsin. The two have been collaborating since 2014 creating a funky, soulful bluesy sound no one can resist. They are currently working on their first album to be released in February 2016.
As a small boy, merely 6 years old Jason was handed a small guitar beginning his long career and love for music. He studied the guitar throughout his childhood in Melbourne, Australia at took the stage for the first time with a Jazz Big Band when he was only 14 year old and joined his first professional band at age 18. He continued to play through out the country including playing gigs throughout Victoria and New South Wales, using the money he made to put himself through law school. Jason has also taught guitar at 2 music schools with 80 students under his tutelage. His skill and technique add a level of intrigue and amazement to any trained ear. He is extremely versatile in style and has the ability to shape and mold the music he plays into a unique creation pleasing to any listener.
Faith walked away from her childhood singing in the pews of a Baptist Church and into the classical realm of Opera competing nationally in High School and College where she attended Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL. Her studies show in her technique and precision however her hearts love for blues and soul greatly overpower her classical background. Her unique tone quality and ability to capture any audience's attention is as astounding as her lyricism.
Faith and Jason have been working together since they met in 2014 creating toe tapping, funky soulful blues music. Amidst the continuous shows in Denver they are currently compiling Velvet Compass' first EP (due for release 2016).
