The music of songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Valeria Pozzo is born out of her love for storytelling within an intimate and nuanced palette. It brings together melodies inspired by folk, rich harmonic movements and intricate yet tasteful grooves informed by jazz. Pozzo is a classically trained violinist who feels comfortable crossing genres, taking influence from Joni Mitchell to Jeff Buckley and Emiliana Torrini to Becca Stevens.
Valeria’s boundless musical curiosity led her to perform with artists spanning a spectrum of styles such as Jazz Jamaica, ESKA, Sam Ryder, Neil Cowley, Antonio Forcione, Robert Mitchell, Coke Studio Pakistan and Southbank Sinfonia. Valeria has performed at many prestigious venues and 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’s classical background, along with her extensive collaborations with a variety of artists, seem to perfectly synthesise in her own work.
Her debut single ‘My Heart’ was written, recorded and produced by Valeria during lockdown at her home in London. 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 heart-rending wisdom.
Her self-produced EP ‘Circles’ due to be released in April 2023, was written from a place of vulnerability; a response to the fact that, sometimes, we are exposed and open but not met in the way we hope. The songs move through cycles of stability and turmoil. They represent a quest for connection, acceptance and belonging; an attempt to resolve something that is broken.
“My Heart, the debut single from Valeria Pozzo, talks to all those who have ever been quiet, scared or on their own. And she does it in such an intricately layered and powerfully sensitive way that you can’t help but gain strength and succour just from listening. We’re eagerly awaiting the EP.” - ArtsCulture
“Valeria Pozzo has released her debut single, ‘My Heart’. All the layered instruments you can hear were played by the string-obsessed London songwriter, which is an impressive feat and demonstrates her huge talent and potential. Pozzo’s classical influences are clear and yet this also sounds fresh. Check it out. She is currently working on producing an EP, which will be one to watch out for.” - Americana UK
“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.”
