Hailing from the Marin County, Keeley Valentino graces Hollywood with her own sultry and subtle nature. With a soft innocence like that of Colbie Caillat, and a sexiness that mirrors that of Nora Jones, Keeley contributes to the acoustic world with a fresh and dynamic style all her own.

She has been writing and singing for longer than she can remember, but became serious about pursuing a career as a professional musician when she was an undergrad at Vanderbilt University. She enrolled in a songwriting class, where she met Stan Sonu, who would later collaborate with Valentino on her first album release in 2006 entitled , “Mechanics of Leaving” produced by Matt Mangano. She is inspired by the musical stylings of Patty Griffin, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, Beth Nielson Chapman, and Lori McKenna. Her poetic lyrics are inspired by her life experience… “It’s stuff that I’ve gone through or seen someone else go through… relationships of all kinds.” The paper is a canvas and her pen is the instrument that draws a picture of her sometimes complicated life, complete with relationships, successful and not so successful, moving away from home to pursue her dream and a myriad of other ups and downs that are all reflected throughout her lyrics.

Although she is proud to have had opportunities to perform in various places across the country, she was most honored to have been asked to play at an awareness benefit for Darfur at the Bluebird Cafe (, as well as a benefit for 'Watoto Wenye Nguvu', a Kenyan outreach nonprofit. (

She moved back to California in 2008 to further her career in the music industry by enrolling in the rigorous, vocal program at the Musicians Institute of Hollywood; a year and a half long program that builds and strengthens the student’s fundamental, raw talents. She is beginning to slide into the native musical hot spots in Hollywood. While at school, she has also been fortunate enough to assemble a band of amazing talent from fellow classmates and they have become quite active in performing.
***She just returned back from Nashville where she began recording her second album with producer Matt Mangano, to be released sometime in late 08, early 09. Stay tuned for updates and tour dates!
