Emotionally charged...and passionate...

...Valkir.

A genre of music that is best described as Instrumental/Soundtrack/Rock, Valkir creates memorable, melodically driven songs on lush soundscapes crafted from the heart and soul.

The music is a world class offering, whose only hope is to share the beauty of great music, backed by the finest musicians in the world.

Valkir states:

"Music is a passion for me, something that comes from deep within my soul. I am blessed to have an outlet for my creativity and have people who support my musical vision."

Valkir has an extensive live performance and recording background...performing over 1000 shows in the midwest area opening for many Major acts such as Survivor, Kansas, Foghat, The Outfield, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Jim Belushi, Three Dog Night, Lovin' Spoonful, James Young from Styx, and many others. He also has worked as a recording engineer in various recording studios in the Chicago area including work for a major publishing house that did work for Chrysalis Records and CBS. In 1999, he decided take an extended leave from live performances to gain insight on to new directions.

In 2004, he met pianist Steve Hawker, and began recording what is now becoming this solo debut cd. As time progressed, he met jazz guitarist, Daniel Lombardi, and ambient/electronica composer, Amir Baghiri, and the fusion of all these elements are coming together to create an incredible mix of unforgettable emotion and passion. The cd is planned on being released in Spring 2007 with a tour to follow. The live show will be an unforgettable event. More special guest musicians are planned for the cd and will be announced very soon!
