Velocity Records has officially reactivated in partnership with Equal Vision Records with an invigorating roster of artists. Originally founded in 2009 by Sound Talent Group partner and music booking agent Dave Shapiro, Velocity has consistently discovered unsigned artists and endorsed them mutually on the booking and recording side, catapulting them to rapid success.
 
“I started my career in music almost 20 years ago at Equal Vision Records," says Shapiro. "It's an honor to see it come full circle and work with EVR in continuing to grow Velocity Records. I feel like I’ve finally come back home and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together with two more decades of experience, knowledge, and relationships.”
 
The future is now. Dave Shapiro and his partners at Sound Talent Group, Tim Borror and Matt Andersen, are kicking off this new chapter of Velocity Records with a powerful lineup of artists including And So I Watch You From Afar, Dead American, D.R.U.G.S., EVE 6, Glasslands, Nate Bergman, No Devotion, Secrets, Serpents of Shiva (ft.
