Valley Queen front woman Natalie Carol leads a band reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and My Morning Jacket with lead vocals evocative of Florence Welch. Their sound brings to mind the soul and power of southern rock combined with inspired and personal lyrics. Over the past year, Valley Queen has been recording tracks for their debut, fulllength LP and have played lauded shows at an array of venues, opening for Lucero, LP, Laura Marling and The Wild Reeds, as well as headlining Pappy and Harriet’s in Joshua Tree, the Echo Park Rising Festival and Broke LA Festival in Los Angeles. Within the past year, they have also played a triumphant string of shows at the 2015 CMJ Music Marathon in NYC and SXSW in Austin. They’ve most recently played at Make Music Pasadena, Lightning in a Bottle in California and a Tiny Desk concert at the NPR offices in DC. Valley Queen headlined their first residency series at The Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles throughout July 2016 to raucous crowds for three consecutive weeks. In August of 2016, the band released the singles “In My Place” and “High Expectations” on Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records to wide acclaim.
