PRESENTED BY JESSIE WHITAKER
Sam Valdez is a 23 year old indie/folk singer based in Los Angeles. After playing with several bands and outfits, she found the essence of her solo sound and decided to run with it in both music and performances. Her unique voice and singing style has set her apart in and created great expectations for music to come.
Sam grew up at the edge of the desert, in Las Vegas (NV), and credits the desert as a major influence in her writing and composing. Classically trained in violin, the instrument also makes an appearance in some of her songs. Sam has been writing her own music for the past 3 years, mostly Americana material, but over the course of these years her style has evolved, letting her new influences have a sway over her music.
Sam listens to a lot of “old school folk stuff” such as Leonard Cohen and Emmylou Harris, but nowadays she’s more influenced by grunge and indie rock. Also a lot of downtempo, indie music make it onto the mix.
Approximately one year ago Sam Valdez decided to write and perform under her own name, to change the style and create more music. Being able to indulge in her own creative process has made this period of time very fruitful, and after gathering a band of talented musicians around her, she has been performing her own material around Los Angeles for the last 6 months. Aside from her own performances, she has collaborated with many musicians and projects in LA, either with her violin\ or as backup vocals.
Sam will release her debut EP late 2017.
