Behind the artist name VALENCÉ is Sophia Valencé Carrhage, 22, who has flourished in several creative constellations since her time at Rytmus Music Gymnasium – not least as the front singer in the folk/pop band called Tiny Little Shoes. Later on, she found an urge to learn more about the production process and has studied Music Production in the last two years time. During her studies, the visions and ideas of her solo project arose. The name VALENCÉ is Sophia’s mid name and refers to a positive and negative emotional charge, which is clearly reflected in the artists music and magical voice.
After the debut summer of 2018, we’ve already seen VALENCÉ participating in the Swedish radio show ‘P3 Osignat’, where she managed to stay as one of the top 10 tracks 5 weeks in a row with her contribution ‘Lights’ – the last track of her EP. Sophia is also a member of the women’s and non-binary’s creative collective Oda Studios – created in a belief to make the music industry more equal. We’ve also seen her perform as one of the live acts at Rookiefestivalen 2018 in Hultsfred, alongside artists like Maja Francis and Diskopunk. More performances is about to drop. Stay tuned!
Love and light,
