Valerie Orth on SoundBetter

Valerie is a pro singer and songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer who records remotely, or in-person in NYC.

I've been singing and performing since I was 5 years old. A bit later, I started writing and playing guitar, and for over 10 years, I've been writing and performing with my electro alt-pop band. I have written, played, sung and produced for genres across the board - from folk to electronic, reggae and ska to trip-hop, rock to children's music.

I'm an extremely dedicated and fast worker. For example, for a top line (melody, lyrics and recording), I can turn around the song within a day. I have a home studio with great gear that I have access to 24/7.

Most importantly, I love making music, and I make sure whatever I put out there is awesome.
