Hey, I’m Valerie! Thanks for checking out my page!
So, I grew up in a small town on the South Shore of Massachusetts and have been playing music all my life. I grew up singing, performing, and playing guitar from a young age. However, singing is my true passion. I was in bands/chorus’ in high school and in college I majored in Classical Vocal Performance. Yes, that means opera. (That surprises a lot of people. Ha!)
I enjoy all genres of music and believe that live music is one of the truer forms of therapy. However, being a writer and storyteller at heart, I knew my niche was country music. I love the raw, gritty, storyteller style and I found that I always try to bring that same style into my writing and in turn, my original music. Some of my big inspirations are Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Tyler Childers, and Taylor Swift. I just finished recording my debut original album titled "Hurt & Healing" set to drop on all platforms Sept. 30th 2022! Make sure to pre-save on Spotify!
One of my favorite music moments was getting the opportunity to sing the American and Canadian National Anthems at Gillette Stadium for the Revolution game in front of 30,000 people! (#BucketList)
Outside of the music world you can usually find me horseback riding, traveling, going on bike rides, or being with friends! I’m a big fan of summer and sundresses, neat hats, and a good old fashioned! I also believe life is too short not to laugh, be weird, and have fun!
With that said, I will be booking more and more shows as time goes on so make sure to keep an eye out. In the meantime, follow me on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date with gigs and to get announcements about my upcoming album!
