Coming from a hefty resumé of tours and festivals straight out of high school; Val Astaire, who began his career fronting Philadelphia based punk outfit ‘Major League’ has spent the last decade in over 60 countries and supporting the likes of such bands as Jimmy Eat World, Mayday Parade and The Starting Line as well as 2015/16’s summers on The Van’s Warped Tour.
What some say was a reckless move at first, Val disbanded Major League in 2016 to begin a solo endeavor which has since flourished into his most ambitious work yet.
Working with producer and engineer, Christopher Curran of Reclaim Music Studios, Val Astaire has taken both visually and sonically a persona he can only describe as “Salvador Dali meets Broadway to an 80’s soundtrack”, and ran with the creative freedom - everywhere from building entire rooms and directing/filming his own music videos to painting and drawing his own album art.
“I think if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing fabulously with style and character through and through. If I’m not willing to go all in then I might as well not go at all.”
Val Astaire’s debut EP “yellow” is now streaming everywhere and available for download. For inquiries and more information on Val Astaire please visit www.ValAstaire.com
