Hello! I'm Valerie, a musician, educator, neuroscience and psychology geek, mother, and creative explorer living in Bellingham, WA. My journey as a musician has taken me from smokey little clubs to packed arenas, from performing in obscurity to making hit records in the 80s with a band called Nu Shooz. Now, I’m on a mission to help vocalists create a sustainable life in music.
One of the ways I do that is by interviewing singers on my podcast, Living A Vocal Life. On the show, you'll hear from vocalists of all genres, in different stages of their careers, including singers who’ve been on the Billboard charts and those who are teaching the next generation. What do they have in common? They're all performers with amazing stories to tell and experiences to share.
If you like what you hear, please consider supporting the podcast here! Each interview takes me about 20 hours to produce. Knowing I have listeners who are enjoying the show enough to "buy me a cup of coffee" means the world. Thanks!
