LIVE IN PARIS
New York recording artist Valerie Ghent kicks off 2020 with a concert in Paris! In a beautiful venue literally right next to the Eiffel Tower, in the same Paris arrondisement where her mother grew up as a child, Valerie will perform original soul/blues songs from her recent albums Velours, The French Sessions and Day to Day Dream, with Pierre Sibille, Jerome Buigues, Danielle Mendez, plus special guest Tri Nguyen on dan tranh (Vietnamese zither) for intimate ballads in duo from their upcoming new album.
Powerhouse recording artist VALERIE GHENT wows audiences with her emotive, evocative voice, piano chops to match, and “soul-stirring, uplifting songs full of vitality and joy.” A native New Yorker with a bluesy, funky piano style and a stunning 3 1/2 octave range, it’s no surprise she has toured with music legends Ashford & Simpson and Debbie Harry (Blondie) and performed/worked with artists as diverse as Dr. Maya Angelou, Nina Simone, Sir Cliff Richard, Roberta Flack, Iggy Pop & Billy Preston. Working closely with R&B royalty Ashford & Simpson for over two decades, Valerie learned from the best of the best. An outstanding live performer, Valerie has released 5 solo albums and had a smash #1 hit song with Love Enough for a Lifetime. Soultracks awarded her album Velours one of the Top 50 Albums of 2016. Valerie also regularly tours and records in France where her 2018 single, Feelin Alright, hit #1 on Jazz Radio France. valerieghent.com
