Veltlite is the artist name of a debut alt Americana- musician from Spring City, Pennsylvania. Heavily influenced by a family history whose roots in America are tied to Amish Christian beliefs and some family members joining a cult as chronicled by his cousin in her non-fiction trilogy “Growing Up in an Amish Jewish Cult,” published in 2007. He also takes notes from modern composers and a strong attachment to the tales of American Southern literature.
Veltlite recorded most of this debut EP including the track at his home studio. Doing it this way took over two years to complete where every single element of the recordings went through a deliberate and painstaking process to bring you the uncommon and powerful new sound he has created.
Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering Veltlite’s “The Devil All the Time. This is what he had to say about it:
“‘The Devil All the Time’ was inspired by a novel of the same name by Grit Lit Author Donald Ray Pollock. Patience is key: The child like innocent quality of the music box that introduces the song turns dark as the lyrics and melodies develop and morph, weaving together a sense of shame, loss and finally, an acceptance of fate. ‘He’s everywhere all the time.'”
