About Valerie

Valerie Toledo, known by her artist name VALERIE, is a newcomer in the world of indie music hailing from the vibrant city of Miami, Florida. With her debut studio album, WITHIN THE CONFINES OF YOU, set to make waves in the music scene on October 13, 2023, Valerie embarks on a journey that blends personal experiences, faith, and the intricacies of the human psyche into a mesmerizing sonic and visual landscape. A singer-songwriter since childhood, she brings an unfiltered, creative authenticity to her craft, embracing the label of an “amateur” with open arms, and positioning her as a fresh and exciting talent. Valerie's approach to music is nothing short of cinematic and conceptual. Drawing inspiration from a diverse spectrum of artists such as Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Grimes, Fleetwood Mac, John Mayer, Lorde, and Hayley Williams, she carves her own unique path in the industry. Her lack of formal musical training is, in her eyes, a boon to her creativity, allowing her to defy conventions and experiment freely with sound and narrative.

About “WITHIN THE CONFINES OF YOU”

We all have confines others suggest for us, but only we can make them into Real places. Sometimes, the things that happen to us stay inside us for so long that they begin to take form and change over time. They take over our minds and we get stuck there. I didn’t mind living in that place — it helped me make this record. For me, my great loves and heartbreaks took the form of the open ocean, a ship, a storm, a war, a different era, dreams, novels, and an imagined future, coalescing into an asylum I lived in voluntarily. This record is about those places I got stuck in, how I gripped the keys to my own confines. But it’s also about how I broke out. WITHIN THE CONFINES OF YOU, Valerie's debut album, will be out on October 13, 2023.
