The Valence Project
If you love Daft Punk and want something unique and melodic but still close to pop music then try The Valence Project 2 – Heart Drum. Melissa’s voice will stun you. This collaborative album is the brainchild of Gregory James, seasoned guitarist and founder of Valence Records. Also on the album are Brain (the infamous drummer known from Guns N' Roses/Primus/Tom Waits); Cookie Marenco engineering and music composer; Kai Eckhardt electric bassist (John McLaughlin to Al Di Meola and beginning a world tour with his own band); Melissa Reese (incredible vocalist and lyricist recently highlghted in Rolling Stone); Emily Palen (multi-talented rock violinist who has performed with Dave Grohl); and BluCube creating astonishing effects using live sample and loop techniques. Recorded at OTR / Blue Coast Studios.
