Bio: Valerie Markell|
Valerie Markell is a gifted vocalist, songwriter and guitarist.
With an Indie/folk style that is often laced with symbolic themes, she creates a rich and passionate emotional tapestry through her evocative and powerful velvet voice.
The love of music and the music of love has woven itself through the very life of this song-stress who has been singing for most of her life. A Northwest Native, Val makes her home on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington.
The songs that Valerie sings, whether originals or renditions of other’s songs, often bring about a response from the listener which is at once deeply emotional and personally relatable. She speaks to the heart of the matter – and to the hearts of those listening.
Currently, Valerie has one CD completed – Spring Thaw, Live! She is beginning to work on a second CD project, which will primarily include original works.
Val has performed at numerous local venues including Tizley’s Euro Pub in Poulsbo, The Global Bean Coffee Traders in Silverdale, Kingston Farmers Market, Poulsbo Art Festival, Columbia City Theater in Seattle, Boston Harbor Marina in Olympia, Pegasus Coffee House on Bainbridge Island, and The Mandolin Café in Tacoma, just to name a few.
