singer songwriter producer
Valentine is a singer-songwriter-producer who has created a library of 45 pop singles with a sound all his own. Blending pop/rock electric guitar, pop/jazz/blues piano, driving/walking electric bass, moody pedal steel guitar, country fiddle, and jazz drums, Valentine creates a fun, sexy, sentimental, driving, swinging sound with lots to move to. Big Band style horn lines played by piano, steel and fiddle keep pace with bouncy jazz drumming and driving quarter-notes-only bass lines, while plentiful virtuoso riffs, fills and solos keep things constantly spicy. With perceptive lyrics to think about on a variety of subjects, and all the musical details shining beautifully through the mixes, Valentine has succeeded in creating a treasure chest of satisfying songs. Press play and be smitten.
