Dina Valenz drops EP
Band/Artist: Dina Valenz
Album/EP: Miles and Miles
Intro: Dina Valenz is a singer/Songwriter that hails from Los Angels area. She’s been making quite a name for herself regionally and nationally. She has received critical acclaim for her amazing songwriting. “Miles and Miles” is her latest 4 track release and the result though far from a self-indulgent ego trip, rather a moving and elegiac artistic statement from start to finish. This is not your overly predictable Ramon Noodle Pop Rock ale artist, no Valenz goes much deeper than that. In-fact Velenz could even be classed as a 4 genera artist: Alternative Rock, Pop, Americana and even contemporary Singer/Songwriter. Valenz has way too much precision and clarity to live in the shadows of overly-predictable Pop Rock. Indeed this is clearly evident in songs like the title track, “My Favorite Pair of Jeans” and “Skinny Bitch” which methodically ups the ante to a very respectable level of catchy musical expression and craftsmanship that transcends typical pigeonholing. The music is also commercially viable with a fresh sound and an entertaining vibe that makes a real connection with the listener. All pieces within this album hold the attentions span of the listener perfectly. In a nutshell this is Alanis Morissette meets Jewel. The 5 song line-up comes fully loaded and appeals to many listeners with a wide variety of musical styles.

Conclusion: I would imagine in time we will hear more from this amazing artists in the near future. No doubt Dina Valenz has carved a marketable niche for herself thus far setting himself up for more marketable success down the road. I would not be surprised to hear his music featured in a major Motion Picture or TV Series one day. But for now I can honestly say this is one artist that clearly gives you a clairvoyant snapshot that is highly original, uplifting and dare I say brilliantly catchy in scope.
Final Rating: 3/5 Stars
