Must. See. Live. Period.
There's a reason she's being called the "Female version of early Prince, with an addictive twist." VH1 rated her on the "Hottest Artists" list after performing a groundbreaking 10 shows for the SXSW Music Festival, and her intensely devoted fans and over 120,500 YouTube subscribers, over 12.5 million views and an average of 260,000 new views per week make it easy to see why. Spankie Valentine is the artistic manifestation of what pop / rock / and social culture, editorial fashion, brazen performance art, and bold personality become when mashed together on stage, video, and radio. She has brought creative life back to the music and entertainment industry, and she commands every stage she performs on.
Recently turning down the offer to compete on America's #1 rated singing competition show, Spankie Valentine is a completely self-trained artist who has built herself into a fully developed package. She may be young, but not only does she write her music, sing, play bass guitar, drums, and dance, but every costume worn on stage is something she designed and hand built herself to achieve an unforgettable visual masterpiece, partnered with her elaborate and undeniable "IT-Factor" for fans experiencing her show. She also edits the spectacular live video installation that plays during the show.
Her music and fashion videos on YouTube have over 12.5 Million views, averaging 1 million new views each month. She has also walked the runways for Fashion Week and appeared in magazine prints as a model for over 60 designers solidifying her name in the fashion industry. All within a year's time.
On her music, Spankie Valentine emotes a sensual, gritty vocal approach both unique and feisty, while pumping relentless bass lines on the bass guitar, synth, keytar, and various percussion instruments. The combination creates a truly distinctive, pop sound with nods to rock, and face hitting dance sound that is catchy, edgy, humorous, and witty. She has released teaser singles for "The Fashion" "Love Killer" "Sugar Daddy" and her most recent summer anthem "Girls In Shorts" along with a groundbreaking music video edited entirely by Spankie Valentine.
Take that sound to the stage and throw in a heavy dose of her infectiously charismatic stage presence, her visually stunning appearance, all self-made high fashion couture wardrobes, intricate dance choreography and theatrics, and her signature hair whipping moves (nicknamed "hair acrobatics" by a reviewer for RockSound Magazine), and you're sure to have a stellar, unforgettable experience.
In an age where the music industry struggles to find fresh, original artists capable of developing into true, entertaining, and lasting artistic icons, Spankie Valentine is turning the tables and giving hope to the weary industry.
