ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer, New Zealand

Forming in March of 2010, “VALVE”, the 4 piece rock outfit, has a commercial rock sound indicative of their influences such as: Stone Temple Pilots / Pearl Jam / Alice in chains…to name a few.

With Dale on vocals and bass; Mike on rhythm guitar; Shane on drums; and Jase on lead guitar, this bunch of 30 + year olds, comprises a mix of experience. From members having 15 plus years experience in the local music scene, to a member who has thrust himself into the scene with just over a years experience of picking up and learning his instrument.

In the short 8 months they have been together, they have already compiled a song list of 15 plus tracks, with more currently being massaged into what will hopefully be contributions to a future single or album. Their demo track “Beside me”, was recently mixed and mastered, by the late Ian Morris, and is the band’s first submission to NZONAIR for new artist funding to help take them to the next level.

VALVE, are motivated to achieve all that they dreamed of in their younger heyday, by pushing themselves and their sound out into the public arena by any means possible. From curtain raising the provincial rugby team at Mclean Park, to opening for NZ icons “Hello Sailor” at the local Cabana Bar. VALVE have even submitting an application as a potential opening act for the upcoming Bon Jovi tour, in December.
 Keep an ear out for these guys, as they have their sights set on becoming a known band name, …not just locally, but also at a national level.
