Valkyrians is a Philly-based band that has established a reputation of a band hard to categorize, but with a memorable sound. Their foundation in the alt-rock category is tainted by Cris Valkyria’s soft, but potent vocal work with melodic folk and world undertones.  The incredibly counter-intuitive and octave-challenging harmonies provided by Valkyria and multi-instrumentalist/co-songwriter Lou Paglione will render you with a discombobulated, yet balanced and melodic impression.  Valkyrian’s solid, but raw sound picture is vaguely reminiscent of the prime time of musical history, but the mixology of classic roots coupled with the cross-genre flirtations and melodic harmonies, will ultimately leave a novel and interesting residue.  The debut album Scent of Breathlessness is hardly a quickly recorded demo. Cris Valkyria started some of the tracks on this album with Tyler Music Group in Nashville over 6 years ago, before meeting her musical soulmate Lou Paglione a few years later and forming a band with him and Mark Harris. Later, Joe Dessereau joined in with rhythmical contribution.  Currently, they are active on the music scene in the tri-state area. For more information, visit www.crisvalkyria.com
