"Val Nebbia has a beautiful and powerful voice -- she can belt it out with bravado but even more impressive is her ability to get ultra-quet and bring a room to an intense hush." Her music is fascinating, her poetry dense and startling.

Biography

When singer Valerie Nebbia opens up her heart and her voice it's hard to breathe. Her voice is bigger than the most enormous venue and when she sings, she tells everyone's story. She explains the doubts and fears and hopes we wonder if anyone else has felt.
The Annapolis, Maryland native climbed over her three brothers' hockey sticks, GI Joes, and Nintendo controllers to reach for her father’s guitar and to speak the truth about home and good cooking but also about the blood and grit that is life.

Surrounded by the sounds of CCR, Simon & Garfunkel, Talking Heads, Brit-pop, and Neil Young, Valerie blended these influences with a healthy dose of Patty Griffin to form her own sound. The Calvin College graduate has emerged as a literate songwriter possessing introspective, gospel/spiritual, sad-girl/strong-woman, honest, gutsy, vulnerable artistry.
Can she sing? Yeah! This is a voice with power, finesse, and a blues edge that pulls at the proverbial heart strings until they almost break. But don't get too distracted by the voice of this angel. Valerie Nebbia has something to say.
