This five-song teaser of Velarde's upcoming debut does just what it should: establish her as an artist in her own right. The frequent Quannum Projects collaborator (and wife of rapper Lyrics Born) can carry a song on her own, and does with aplomb. Much credit is due to Born's slick hip-hop-meets-R&B production, but Velarde's clear, melodic voice is supremely endearing.

At Sigmund Stern Grove (19th Ave. and Sloat Blvd., San Francisco) on July 26. 2 p.m., free
