Pennsylvania, United States
Indie Pop / Singer/Songwriter
Valerie grew up in rural Birdsboro, PA, but always had her sights set on bigger and better things. She was always involved in some sort of music group growing up, whether it was band, chorus, church choir, community choir, jazz band, a capella groups, solo performance, or coffeehouses and open mics. You could safely say that music is a huge passion of hers.
She has formal training in music theory, ear training, sight singing, and composing from her studies and degree from Elizabethtown College '05. She was even awarded the Theodore Presser Sholarship for "outstanding achievment as a music major" her junior year! Not only does Valerie Nicole sing, but she also writes her own original material, and plays acoustic guitar and keyboard. Flute was actually her instrument of study at Etown, so you might not be surprised to hear some flute mixed into her upcoming full-length cd.
Valerie Nicole's sound could be described as sweet and soulful, yet powerful. Her songs are typically a pop/rock mix, but there is a hint of soul in some of her original songs. You can check out her event schedule, purchase her cd, sign her guestbook, and more at www.valerienicole.net
