“"We have rarely heard so much authenticity. We perceive the pain, the hopes, the doubts and the suffering of the singer”
— Indie Chronical
Kristian Phillip Valentino is a solo acoustic, singer-songwriter born and raised in the Chicago suburbs and now residing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. His musical palette falls between the lines of indie folk, singer-songwriter and Americana. Fans of Gregory Alan Isakov, Iron and Wine and Jason Isbell, will feel comfortable here. His lyrics are a healing balm from the daily struggle as they wash over you with a deep reverence.
Kristian's newest album is a concept record based on the 4 seasons; Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. The plot is a love story that starts in Spring and weaves through the seasons leading to a breakup in the Winter. There are 12 songs on the full length album, 3 for each season and each season's sound is different than the last.
Kristian wrote this album in 7 days, to process a relationship that had ended. Although it ends as a sad story, it's a story that will resonate with many others and hopefully can be a healing balm of hope.
