“This album represents the best work of Valerie's beautiful healing music releases since 2014. Peaceful Music with a Groove is designed to relax, empower and heal body, mind and soul," says Suzanne Doucet of Only New Age Music.
Mixing soft meditative grooves with Eastern instruments, acoustic and electric guitars and bits of global fusion, reviewers have described Valerie's music with the following phrases: "Calming, refreshing, and energizing all at the same time; the sound is a fusion of Indian with new age/folk, a dash of blues, and even a bit of rock; overall chic and semi-exotic blend of acoustic, meditation and world beat styles of music. Elements of both Eastern and Western acoustic music are seamlessly woven into a sonic tapestry of organic resonance. This is meditation music that knows how to rock softly.”
Valerie played guitars, bass, piano, synth; and she was joined by friends:
Tom Rossi on bansuri flute, kora (African harp) and percussion; and sitar,
Daniel Perl on tabla,
Stevin McNamara on sitar,
Simon Vegas on beats.
The music is infused with prayers for peace and love, and all live performances are heart-opening gatherings to help uplift our world.
When people ask "What does New Age Music mean to you," Valerie says that in contrast to most musical entertainment, New Age Music is offered by the artist as a tool for upliftment. Infused with intentions for peace, wellness, personal and spiritual growth, the music is meant to help access a sense of inner Oneness to connect with our higher selves.
Being a multi-genre artist, and loving to play funky electric guitar, Valerie's music starts with peaceful grooves, then builds in layers while incorporating various world instruments and rhythms. Through this doorway, we can journey through many different states of being.
Some tracks are ambient (STILL) and serve as a backdrop for meditation or table work. Other tracks have a bit more energy (CHILL) and are great for Yoga and other moving meditations. All contain an essence of love, diversity and creative energy to help spread the message of peace throughout our world. (THRILL).
