Behind the Music
A Story Steeped in Sound
Valentina is a London-based, Soviet-born singer-songwriter/pianist originally from Odessa on the Black Sea. She is currently working on her third album, after independently releasing her first two albums Love is.. and Love is Love. Valentina loves to mix genres and to cross musical as well as cultural borders. This shines through in “Soulchild”, “Let me show you”, "Reflections", “For every kiss” and “You can’t plan love” (the latter is in production). Her latest single “Do you ever” was produced by an award winning Brazilian producer Rodrigo Campello . This was followed by three more singles: "Beneath the Scars", "Somebody" and "Unicorns at Heart". Whilst her songs strive to break down convention, lyrical and musical expectations, borders and rules, she always stays true to her Russo-Ukrainian, James Bondesque roots. Her music is the stuff of films and takes you on a journey. Be ready to escape. Valentina is a regular on the London gigging scene having played at some of the top songwriters’ favourite venues including the Cobden Club, the Luxe, the Old Queens Head, Soho Pizzeria, the AAA, the Water Rats, the 15 Minute Club, Raffles Chelsea, the 100 Club, Sessions 58, the Cellar@ Finborough Arms, The Good Ship, The 229 Club, Nottinghill Arts Club, the Troubadour and the O2 Academy, amongst others.
