As you can see, my sister has completed my new web design! I LOVE IT! And I hope you do too... some cool things about this new design... easier navigation, fans can contact me directly with questions and comments, fans have multiple options for purchasing my albums and other merch, and there are tons of new cool pics to look through. Feel free to let me know what you think. Enjoy!
I just completed a new photo shoot with Stiver Photography! I am extrememely happy with the new pics and I can't wait to share them with you all :) ...but you will have to wait for the new web design to see them. My talented younger sister will be working on this in the next month or so with her recent graduation from Penn State University with a degree in graphic design. Keep checking back for the new design!! I hope to reveal it in early September.
I mentioned this about a year ago, and it is finally in the works!
Source Q Boutique is going to be exclusively representing 'Naive' for tv/film licensing! They have placed songs on tv shows such as Ugly Betty, Life Unexpected, House, Cold Case, Saving Grace, and Californication. This could be a huge opportunity for my music to get some national exposure. Very exciting!!
I just got my first radio airplay royalty check :)
Much like when I got a check for 'From the Heart' being used on The Today Show last March, I had no idea this had happened, but its definitely a very nice surprise. So, if you are a musician with original music, and you are not a member of a performing rights organization like ASCAP, then you need to join! I never would've seen that money or even known i was owed money if I hadn't been a member.
Check out our new songs!
I am excited to announce that VNB just finished our first demo! We are really proud of what we came up with... 2 new songs and one old one revamped.
Ordinary Celebrity sort of makes fun of how people try to become famous through the internet, reality tv, etc. We are most proud of this one!
Holding on to Hope was inspired by the National Vigil of Hope organization to give hope to those searching for missing loved ones. We've gotten the most compliments on this one so far.
Naive was re-recorded for music publishing purposes, so you may be hearing it on tv/film sometime in the future!
Let us know what you think :)

My single "Naive" has been offered a deal by a publishing company out of Arizona! This is unofficial until a contract is signed, but when it goes through, "Naive" will be pitched to tv and film projects. This publishing company has placed songs on ABC, NBC, and CBS hit shows such as Ugly Betty, so this is definitely a HUGE opportunity!! It could be the jump start into the industry that I've been looking for :) I will keep you posted on updates.
I recently joined a local rock/punkrock/pop cover band that performs in eastern/central PA called Pulse as a vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist! The band's members include Derek Mauldin: lead guitar/vox, Jon Rossi: drums/back-up vox, and Mike Taylor: bass guitar/back-up vox. Jon Rossi is endorsed by Silver Fox Drumsticks . You can check out Pulse's gig schedule on Myspace .
Derek and Jon will also be joining Keith and I for the newly formed Valerie Nicole Band! Check out our schedule here or on myspace.
We are all very excited about both projects and hope that you will support both! :)
It's official... I'm teaming up with Canadian American Records to promote "Misunderstood" and "Livin in the Moment" to over 3,000 Indie Radio stations worldwide starting this June! This could put me on the Indie Billboard Charts and be huge for my exposure :)
