A beautiful voice like Ayleen Valentine’s could stand alone and draw crowds, but pairing it with touching lyricism, interesting production, and precise delivery, this upcoming Berklee student is proving she’s ready to graduate to the big stage. Beginning her career with a feature on Beowülf and Sarcastic Sound’s atmospheric low-fi mix, “Close Your Eyes,” Ayleen proved to us from the start that she wanted to use her talents for something unique.
Maintaining that direction with melodies for the last of your mind, a pack of three electronically-coated acoustic singles, Ayleen began to find her voice – one of beauty, grace, and honesty. Her latest single, “i dont wanna say goodbye,” hones in on those qualities and Ayleen finds her truest creative form. The production purposefully embraces its imperfections, creating a spacey and plush feeling we can’t get enough of.
