Hailing from a mixed Italian-English background, Valentina moved to London aged 16 with the purpose of making music. If you think you’re yet to have heard any of her work, chances are you’re mistaken – As well as having joined Kindness on tour as part of the band and guesting on Two Door Cinema Club’s “ The World is Watching”, Joe Goddard’s version of her track ‘Gabriel’ has become one of the most enduring tracks of the past few years, dominating both the airwaves and club dance floors since its release in 2011. Check this out her track “Wolves” from her upcoming debut EP :
Hi, I’m Ben (or Sodwee if you prefer), the owner of this veteran music blog. I was born in 1985 and raised in Paris, France. It's still my hometown by the way. I’m bilingual in English and French. I'm always on the hunt for that new sound. I have amassed a substantial amount of music over the years. My library reflects my eclecticism. I've traveled and lived abroad a fair bit and an avid consumer of culture, from movies, to live concerts.
