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.
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.
Her latest single ‘Farther Away’ was released via NPR’s KCRW and features ethereal vocals, western soundscapes, and shimmering shoegaze melodies. It grabs inspiration and sounds from Sufjan Stevens, The War On Drugs and the words of Sylvia Plath, it is no wonder that Valdez creates stunning compositions.
