Valere is Auckland based songwriter and producer Shana Llorando, whose palate of warm new wave sounds, R&B melodies and intricate rhythms mesh into arrangements that are both ‘kinetic, yet warmly intimate’ (Adam Burns, NZ Musician Magazine). Valere means ‘to be worth’. This is the heart of her music and message; finding one’s worth in the right place and the journey of the search.
