‘Valeria Pozzo’s light, effortless vocals are complemented by her mastery of guitar, violin and a range of exotic stringed instruments. In combination with the talents of drummer Yusuf Ahmed and keyboardist Joseph Costi, the music takes on a jazz slant which takes her songs to a higher plane.’ - Woodburner
The music of singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Valeria Pozzo is not easily pinned down, but rather hovers around pop-folk and jazz. Much of Valeria’s writing is directly inspired by her own personal experience, with themes of family, relationships, and distance explored with a deft touch and a heartrending wisdom.
Over the years, Valeria’s boundless musical curiosity led her to perform with artists spanning a spectrum of styles such as Jazz Jamaica All Stars, ESKA, Neil Cowley, Antonio Forcione, Robert Mitchell and the NU Civilisation Orchestra. Valeria’s classical background along with her extensive collaborations with these artists seem to perfectly collide and synthesise in her own work.
Her debut single ‘My Heart’ was written, recorded and produced by Valeria during lockdown, at her home in London. The wide array of instruments, layered harmonies and strings accompany Valeria’s soothing voice to add a warm and comforting quality to this pop-folk song.
Valeria has performed at some of the most prestigious halls and venues in Italy and the UK and has sung at world renowned Abbey Road Studio, where she recorded a cover of George Harrison’s ‘Here Comes The Sun’ for Peroni Nastro Azzurro.
Valeria Pozzo is currently self-producing on her forthcoming EP, which will be released in September 2022.
