    Valley Shine ... Folk/Pop/Americana

    in Indie Music

    Tonight Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Jenna and Sam of the fantastic Folk/Pop/Americana band Valley Shine to the Show! 



    www.valleyshineband.com


    Valley Shine was distilled from a love of whiskey, cats and bluegrass music. In early 2014, Jenna Blake was in search of a writing partner with an appreciation for folk music who shared her passion for songwriting. Hailing from Louisville, KY, Jenna was influenced by traditional bluegrass music and roots rock like CCR, CSNY and Joni Mitchell. By a sheer stroke of luck, Jenna discovered Sam Sobelman and the two met up to see if there was any musical chemistry. After a couple of writing sessions influenced by whisky, laughs and some banjo pluckin', they quickly discovered their songwriting styles were a perfect match.
