"Valerie Orth inspires listeners to shake off self-doubt and detractors so that they can take control of their lives and relationships.” - Consequence of Sound
"There is an honesty to Valerie Orth's music that is both brilliant and heartbreaking.”
- San Francisco Chronicle
Valerie is a prolific alt-pop songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer with a strong, feminist sense of self. Integrating live instruments with electronic sounds, her Brooklyn-by-way-of-San Francisco-influenced music is unique and authentic.
Valerie is currently working on a new album, her best work yet, due out at the end of 2019. While you’re waiting, check out her previous 2 LPs, 3 EPs, 1 compilation, and many singles, including electronic interpretations of ‘90s rock hits and a “Make Your Move” Remix EP (released on Blend.io).
Wake You, Valerie’s most recent EP, carries the upbeat production and warmth of Sylvan Esso, the unexpected rhythms and percussion of Tune-Yards, and the dark vocals and trippy-ness of Portishead. Popdust Magazine also compares Valerie’s “confident command” to St. Vincent. The significance of Wake You lies directly at her activist roots and purpose as a songwriter: inspiring her listeners to make a change.
Speaking of activism, Valerie also co-leads Beats By Girlz NYC, teaching beatmaking to girls and transgendered youth, and produces The League of Badass Women Podcast.
