Valerie was born in Russia but it was on the small island of Cyprus that she grew up and spent her whole life. The music appears in the church, having even attended the choir. This is where she discovers what would become one of her passions: Byzantine music. Her mother, Ludmila, a training pianist, then buys a piano that stimulates a vein she did not know about.
It is already at the age of 16 that Valerie begins to compose her own songs and lyrics. This was also the age when she realized that her true purpose in music was to convey emotions, bringing to the surface feelings and thoughts that we thought we were asleep or did not know how to express. Valerie could thus comfort us, as if giving strength through what she sings.
In the school years she became the leader and vocalist of the band Slime Rock, recreating on stage the great Rock hits of the 80's and 90's. However, it was only in 2016 that I would bet on a solo project, something that was yours and yours alone. Where she could express herself artistically in the whole. Thus was born "Beyond The Heavens Light", project where it recreates acoustic versions of artists of the caliber of Placebo, Madrugada or White Buffalo, among others.
In 2018, Valerie is preparing for another important career move: her debut EP! The lyrics are her own, and the songs were composed in Cyprus and produced in Portugal, at Rhodes Studios, right in the center of Lisbon.
The first sample of his talent was "You" then "Mother" and the debut EP, "Beyond the Heavens Light". And now? Now comes a cover, "Without You I'm Nothing", another strong theme based on a catchy rhythm guitar.
