“The song, ‘Farther Away’ (from her forthcoming EP) has a very haunting, cinematic quality that flows evenly throughout. It sounds open and vast, reminiscent of her Nevada desert upbringing.” - KCRW
“Americana meets shoegaze” – Consequence of Sound
“…heady dose of 90s shoegaze feelings and indie rock stylings. Valdez weaves a tale of love and loss through driving melodies and cathartic lyrics” – Indie Shuffle
Sam Valdez is a fusion of shoe-gaze and vintage Americana indie folk. Embodying the best of both genres, Valdez has created dreamy, yet haunting atmospheric soundscapes that resonate with her listeners. Valdez grew up at the edge of the Nevada desert, in Las Vegas and credits the desert as a major influence in her writing and composing. The vastness and solitude of desert life is apparent throughout her writing, with cinematic resonance and euphoric arrangements.
After performing in numerous bands, she found the essence of her solo sound and decided to run with it, indulging in her own creative process and ultimately developing a sound that is true to her own. As a classically trained violinist, Valdez has a sense of musical maturity within her songs, adding technicalities that bring her to the forefront of her genre.
