Valentina : Soul, latin, pop
Power vocals, R&B/soul, Loopstation, Go.
Originally from Santiago, Chile, with a stint in Squamish, Valentina currently resides in Burnaby, B.C. where she works tirelessly on her vocals that blow the roof off every single venue she plays in the city. A trained musician with a passion for soul, Valentina works her piano, tambourine and loop pedal (in a pair of 5 inch heels no less) to deliver a set of originals that has your heart aching for more and your feet dancing through all her upbeat soul/R&B covers. This fierce female brings vocals that are unbeknownst to any other act out of Vancouver and beyond so be sure to check out one of her shows if you feel the need to catch the next big thing! Currently working on her upcoming EP, Valentina will be everywhere soon so come catch her in her early stages to say you were there when it all began.

Poets are then assigned a song from whatever album we are doing to create a new piece of work for the show.The performance includes the band playing the songs with the poets reading their poems in response to the songs in between the songs.
Albums in the past include Black Sabbath-Paranoid, No Doubt-Tragic Kingdom, RUSH-Moving Pictures, The White Stripes-Elephant, Barenaked Ladies-Gordon, Prince-Purple Rain, Beastie Boys-Licensed to Ill, Led Zeppelin-Led Zeppelin IV and several others
