“Les Nuits Blanches”: Time shifts, sleepless nights, dancing till dawn, creativity at night are all part of Valeries world. She performs the ‘ Soundtrack ‘ of her sleepless ‚White Nights‘ in various languages – French, English, German and Russian. Songs of her multi-cultural childhood and very personal compositions shape this sensual and entertaining album. Official Release (CD/digital/Vinyl): October 2013

The album has been recorded in Vienna and Montpellier in 2012. It consists of songs that Valerie has collected over the passed ten years, with childhood memories from Moscow (“Spakoni Notschi”), spying on your bed partner´s Freudian dreams (“I spy on you”), wandering in the middle of the night in the streets of Paris (“Metropolis”) and longing just for a good night´s sleep (“Le sommeil”). The style can simply be described as “Chansons jazz nocturnes”.
