Love is Freedom... (hard not to share this #Wednesdaywisdom from @banksy - found via @be_artist_be_art) #letitgo
I may be a little late in the game but just saw Kendra Morris for the 1st time and I'm totally into it #soexcited
Well, this is about the daintiest you'll ever see me 💁🏻
Watch my interview with AFTV host @michaelinge, get some #behindthemusic gossip and see my Pixie performance (with Kathy Comperatore on background vocals). Just came out on The Artists Forum!
Yes, that's an #abletonpush I'm playing and a #keithmcmillen #softstep2 I'm stomping on. It's also the 1st time I ever live looped! Link in bio... Subscribe to my YouTube channel too! YouTube.com/valerieorth ❤
So happy I got off my ass and left my apartment to see this dope band @magnacarda from Austin TX tonight here in BK. (See my story for video of the show)
Off. The. Hook. #soreal #badass #inspiration
Happy #nationalpetday 🐶🐶
These are my mom's #havanese and my friend's #blacklab (in 2nd pic) and until we get our own, @freddynyce and me are your NYC dogsitters ❤ #openforbusiness ☎️
For a year now, I've been posting for Female Frequency, finding new female-identified producers to highlight every #MusicMonday, which has been super inspiring for me. I wanted to share today's #musicdiscovery here, too- the fact that SAMA' sustains her music in an occupied territory blows me away.
Also I'm now sharing the tasks of highlighting badass women on Mondays with @krithimusic - so head on over to @femalefrequency and check out producers you've probably never heard of and who are well worth listening to and supporting!

#Repost @femalefrequency: SAMA' is badass. Born in Jordan, raised in Ramallah (West Bank), she is Palestine's 1st female DJ and producer. In a beautiful article in @noisey, which you need to read, SAMA' (formally known as DJ Skywalker) says "I always challenged perceived notions of traditional gender roles." She also talks about the unique energy in Palestine and the affect the occupation and bombings have on nightlife - "People will go out and dance like it's the last party for months"- as it can be. So go read that article and listen to SAMA on SoundCloud at sama_saad. #amazing #musicmonday #musicdiscovery by @valerieorth
Hiking upstate yesterday. It was the first day I've taken off in I don't know how long - at least a couple months. I HIGHLY recommend it!
