Sam Valdez is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, whose music is built upon the fusion of shoegaze and vintage Americana indie folk. Embodying the best of both genres, Valdez has created dreamy, yet haunting atmospheric soundscapes that resonate with her listeners.
Valdez grew up at the edge of the Nevada desert, in Las Vegas and credits the desert as a major influence in her writing and composing. The vastness and solitude of desert life is apparent throughout her writing, with cinematic resonance and euphoric arrangements.After performing in numerous bands, she found the essence of her solo sound and decided to run with it, indulging in her own creative process and ultimately developing a sound that is true to her own. As a classically trained violinist, Valdez has a sense of musical maturity within her songs, adding technicalities that bring her to the forefront of her genre.
Rodes Rollins is a psychedelic rock, Americana-inspired singer-songwriter based out of Brooklyn. Hailing from Colorado, Rollins draws much of her storytelling inspiration from western landscapes and sounds, and likes to refer to her music as “cowgirl poetry”. Rollinsreleased her debut EP Young Adult in early 2017, which quickly put her on the map as an artist to watch. Rollins' recordings feature some of the top players in the game including Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Matthew Compton of Electric Guest, Greg Rogove of Devendra Banhart, and Kane Ritchotte of Portugal, The Man. Rollins’ latest release is an A/B Side entitled Velvet, which was produced by Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, Rodrigo Amarante), and showcases Rollins’ unique sound as a genre bending and poetic songwriter.
