…The musically advanced, classically trained violist
Sam Valdez is the new indie folk singer with her latest single “It’s Alright” now out. After receiving acclaim from her first single ‘Hours’, keen to affirm her mark with her sound, the young singer has already performed in some of the most prestigious LA venues. The musically advanced, classically trained violist, mysterious yet angelical look instantly draws attention to any onlooker – a reincarnation of 70’s chic, with an emphatic sound that induces you to fall into a world that peaks the imagination.
Being brought up close to the Nevada desert (Las Vegas) the singers upbringing cultivated much of her experience as a writer, accrediting her work to the vast landscapes and desert life. Going on to quote that “she wrote ‘It’s Alright’ in a dream-like state of mind.” A song in reverence to her time in solitude understanding the impact of the power of relationships within love, a story that goes beyond the innocent portrayal conveyed in her voice.
..unformidable western twang
‘It’s Alright’ focuses on the delusions of love, far removed from its realities. The acceptance of its complexities to derive at a deeper understanding of both what is lost and what is gained during the process – An emotional transformation into greater insights of the human connection between lovers with internal confirmation that in the end things will be alright
Sam Valdez exudes a mystical euphoric sound likened to Bat For Lashes when we first heard “what’s a girl to do” or Weyes Blood “Generation Why” a sound that is also closely comparable to the accents and tone of Lana Del Ray, yet there is slightly something about Valdez’s particular unformidable western twang that has the ability to take you back to front-woman Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane. Adding her unique twist, Sam Valdez teleports you back in time with her cinematic, relaxed, nostalgic sound not quick to be forgotten.
