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 chosing 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……
Chance Meeting in Hereford
In 2010, with many original songs penned, a chance meeting with Pete Goodall resulted in an ongoing music partnership and a new musical career, with a new recording contract providing an outlet for her songwriting.
Recent Album Releases
Since that meeting Valeryan has mainly been working in the studio with Pete and so far the results are three live download albums on I-TUNES, all produced by Pete and distributed by One Media at Pinewood Studios. ROLLING ROAD was released in September 2012; WHITE CHRISTMAS – feat. Thunderclap went live in October 2013, and REFLECTIONS – was released in March 2014.
Recent Single Releases
So far four singles have been released – a cover of Who Knows Where The Time Goes (2011); Moving Shadows (2012); As The Nights Draw In (2014) and White Christmas (2014). As The Nights Draw In was originally recorded as a practical joke, but has now had over 8,000 plays on YOU TUBE worldwide!
New Album Due
New album JULY 14 due to go live imminently – includes Summer Festival Blues, The Kat Song and Carpe Diem (Massa Lubrense Spirit) ……. plus 9 more originals …
While working on vocal harmonies for the Christmas songs, 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 the Riverdale label. 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.
Sample tracks from all four albums, Rolling Road, White Christmas, The Settlers Anthology and Reflections can be heard on this website, either on the site or by links to their respective I-TUNES page. There are links to YOU TUBE and I-TUNES for As The Nights Draw In and White Christmas (single) plus YOU TUBE link to Summer Festival Blues …
