Hailed as “one of the revolutions of music this year”, independent artist Tilly Valentine has a string of triumphant self-releases and eagerly awaited new tracks.
The Oxfordshire-born artist made the move to London when she was the tender age of 16 to enrol in the esteemed BRIT School. Adjusting to her new life away from her loved ones, she reached out to producers over SoundCloud and collaborated from across the globe. Her early journey also involved performing backing vocals for Mimi Webb, Grace Davies and choir vocals for Rod Stewart and Sam Smith at Wembley Arena, alongside projects with DJ Fresh, Lewis Watson and iiola (formerly Shannon Saunders).
Since then, the independent artist has made waves while "truly developing her own sound" (Wonderland), garnering millions of streams and soothing the ears of tastemakers across BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, BBC 6 Music, The Hot List, Jazz FM. Since the premiere of her debut single on 1Xtra, Jamz Supernova has supported Valentine’s new releases, alongside The BBC Introducing Mixtape and Radio 6 championing her “beautiful pop music”, alongside most recently being BBC Radio 1’s Tip of the Week.
Valentine’s diverse soundscape drifts between mellow and soulful works to playful pop tracks, classed as "the type of quirky you can pair with a coffee or party”. With features on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Riffs & Run, Jazz UK and many more, her angelic voice attracted attention with her edbl collaboration on their multi-million streamed love song, ‘Table for Two’, securing plays in stores across the world.
Being recognised for her often conversational lyrics, Valentine is no stranger to the stage having performed at her hometown venues, O2 Academy in Oxford and Truck Festival, as well as London’s prestigious Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, The Jazz Cafe and many more.
Walking a tightrope between new discovery and mass appeal, Nightshift Magazine describes Tilly Valentine’s music as “ready for the big, wide world of pop and what a treat it is for all those that like to rest upon its shores”.
