"Valerie Jay & The Americanos have got it all: a strikingly beautiful singer with fab stage presence, strong material, and a kick-ass country band to dress her up." - Grapevine Culture.
Statuesque songbird Valerie Jay was born and raised in Hull, county of Yorkshire, England. Backed by the Americanos, an impressive line up of Bay Area talent, this band is constantly breaking new ground. Musical director/co-writer/bass guitarist Rob McCloskey makes his mark with innovative song arrangements, and drummer Ken Owen adds a rock solid bottom end with impeccable tempos and dynamics. Lead guitarist/pedal steel player Jeff Hanson effortlessly lends another dimension with his slick guitar pickin’. Rounding out the band is former Spinal Tap keyboard player (!) David Kaffinetti (Viv Savage).
