From the city streets of Central Florida, Of Valleys boasts over 20 years of combined experience in the Florida music scene. Lead by front man and lead vocalist, Joe Loffredo, his twin brother Mike Loffredo, OV prides themselves on high-energy show performances as well as lyrics that embody peoples' everyday lives.

On April 5, 2011 the band decided it was time to release their debut EP, Key to the City (produced by James Paul Wisner and Jason Aaron Adams in Orlando, FL). The band then set out to play their first show and EP Release, on the Florida Music Festival's Mainstage in Orlando, FL. In conjunction with their first live performance, Of Valleys was also selected to perform an acoustic showcase and premiere their music video for their single "Meet Me on the Dance Floor" (directed by Abyssmal Entertainment) at the Indie Film Festival as part of the huge Orlando event.

Of Valley's musical influences span from 90's alternative rock to hip/hop, all of which can be heard on their debut EP. This concept album tells a tale of weekends past - filled with excitement, love, lust, and regret. Join the band on their journey through the weekend, and experience something honest and relatable. Since their release to the public they have not slowed down.

EP/Album Biography:
"Key to the City" was written and recorded as a concept album telling a story of weekends past. Describing a weekend of ups and downs, and telling a story of love and lust that reaches from todays youth to generation next. Follow the main character and his friends on their journey from Friday (I've been waiting for this day to come-Key to the City) through the weekend. You'll find the swagger of meeting your friends after a long week featured in "Tonight, Tonight" and you can be social and dance the night away when you "Meet (them) on the Dance Floor." And if you've ever been out with your friends and found yourself thinking about the one you love then you can relate to the ballad in track 4, entitled, "As the Sun Begins to Fall" which comes next in the album line-up. The music continues to breathe life into the atmosphere with the dawn of a new morning, featuring the singles, "Alarms," and "When One Door Closes." And with the thought of the new moon rising in the air and the weekend coming to a close, a passionate reflection of thoughts are found in the last track titled, "XOXO!"
Okay, so picture this... you're downtown New York for the first time with four of your buddies. You're dressed as you always are, in jeans and a tee shirt. You're staying at a hotel way out of your price range and you're loving life. One of your friends has an idea, so you all leave the suite and head to the rooftop. When you get there you're stunned.

Someone has staged the rooftop as if it were a living room. You're stoked to see the set-up and all five of you rush over to the couch, sit down, and all without bothering to pull the cord on the lamp sitting on the end table next to the couch. After
