Welcome to the official website for Valerie Day
Dynamic and self assured, Valerie Day has a voice that is evocative of another time, yet refreshingly modern. Gifted singer, skilled percussionist, in-demand session player and passionate advocate for arts education, Valerie is an artist of rare talent and dedication. First appearing on the world's stage in the 80's with the Pop/R&B band NU SHOOZ, she has since performed and recorded with a wide spectrum of artists ranging from the Oregon Symphony Pops to pianist Tom Grant, guitarist Dan Balmer, pianist Darrell Grant, celebrated jazz artist David Frishberg, and many others.
Valerie's most recent CD is one she's released with her husband John and their band NU SHOOZ. The group that first won the hearts and minds of the world with ‘I Can’t Wait’ is back with a collection of songs from the tape vaults. Kung Pao Kitchen represents a return to the slamming bass lines and punchy hooks of its predecessor ‘Poolside' and captures the group at the height of their groove. Kung Pao Kitchen is a time capsule from the days when the Shooz ruled dance floors from Cleveland to Cape Town.
