“…touching, melodic pool of pure placidity…”
“Valere’s pure and youthful vocal tone is the thread that pulls the listener along…evocative and refreshing…”
Elsewhere NZ (2016)
Ethereal, serene and heartfelt, Valere’s sound brings an eclectic mix of soul and synth. Valere is Shana Llorando, a songwriter and producer based in Hamilton, New Zealand, whose palate of warm new wave sounds, pop melodies and R&B beats are showcased in impeccable arrangements. Valere means ‘to be worth’. This is the heart of her message, one that speaks about finding worth in the right place and the journey of the search.
