Valkyrians is a Philly-based band that has established a reputation of a band hard to categorize, but with a memorable sound. Their foundation in the alt-rock category is tainted by Cris Valkyria’s soft, but potent vocal work with melodic folk and world undertones, and the incredibly counter-intuitive and octave-challenging harmonies provided by Valkyria and multi-instrumentalist/co-songwriter Lou Paglione will render you with a discombobulated, yet balanced and melodic impression.  Valkyrian’s solid, but raw sound picture is vaguely reminiscent of the prime time of musical history, but the mixology of classic roots coupled with the cross-genre flirtations and melodic harmonies, will ultimately leave a novel and interesting residue. She is also often seen as a duo with Lou Paglione; either performing original Cris Valkyria songs, or as a part of a children songs project: Cris & Lou (crisandlou.com)!  As mentioned above, Valkyrians consists of Lou Paglione who is a tremendously versatile multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.  His former musical merits ranges from playing with bands opening up for acts like The Hooters and Cinderella, to playing the accordion on the Al Alberts Showcase television program as a young, prodigious 6 year old Italian immigrant. And to complete the band is lead guitarist Mark Harris who is a sought after session player and working musician around the Tri-State area. A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, bass and keyboards, Mark has studied music most of his life, including formal training while attending college.
