The Story So Far
Valeryan was lead singer with the famous UK pop folk band The Settlers in 1976 and the young girl who brought the English language version of Plaisir d’Amour (My Love Loves Me) to the singles charts a little while earlier, while still at school in Surrey…… After leaving The Settlers she followed a solo career on the International cabaret circuits until the mid 80’s when choosing to “retire” from the professional music scene to bring up a family. ……. never intending to return …
As we all know never is a very long time, and after her family were grown up she started writing and singing again……

While working on vocal harmonies for White Christmas, both Valeryan and Pete were reminded of when they first worked together back in 1976 when he produced The Settlers vinyl single Whichaway Billy/Hobbit Land for Riverdale. As the Christmas tracks took shape, they both decided the time was right to re-master some of the old Settlers tracks from vinyl and to release these as The Settlers Anthology in Perfect Harmony at the same time as the White Christmas album.
