Valerie Lighthart debuted in the music scene in the Fall 2018 with “I’ll Be Damned,” a folk/electronic track. She quickly followed up this release a few months later with her debut EP, “V.A.L.” These works were mostly produced by Immortal Girlfriend, other than “Mean To Me,” which was produced by Four Giants. In May 2019, she followed her initial EP release with her second EP, “Places.” This EP was a work written about or during her travels, calling for springtime adventures and more.
We caught up with Valerie to learn a bit more about her.
Q: Who are some of your musical influences?
A: Definitely people like Space Laces, Joyryde, Habstrakt; and, in spite of my music being kind of “dark,” I would add Fox Stevenson.
Q: What’s your favorite part about being a musician?
A: I would say my favorite part about being a musician is the moment when you play your track (that you’ve been working on for weeks) in front of an audience and they respond well to it.
Q: Who is somebody you always wanted to work with?
A: It’s a cliché, but obviously Skrillex.
Q: To date, what’s your most memorable music moment?
A: I think the most memorable moment was my first time DJing in Canada with Dirtyphonics. People went crazy with our sets an it was super fun.
Q: What does the immediate future hold for you in your artistic career?
A: For now, I have some releases signed to NCS coming out soon and I’m also currently working on some remixes and EPs. This year is going to be HARD but exciting!
