Sam Weber's Valentina Nevada Out May 27

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Sam Weber's sophomore album, Valentina Nevada firmly established the 23-year-old B.C. native as one of Canada's most powerful young songwriters. Using the vintage Laurel Canyon sounds of Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell as their foundation, Weber and his band guide the listener on the journey they have been on for the past two years. They are joined by the muse, Valentina, a symbol of finding meaning in the superficial, and hope amid cynicism.
After releasing his full-length debut album Shadows In The Road in 2014 - which Grayowl Point described as "Packed with emotion... there's scarcely a note out of place" - Weber and his loyal compadres Marshall Wildman, Hugh Mackie, and Esme John, chose to make Valentina Nevada without any outside opinion or influence.
The band got their inspiration from their time together on the road over the past two yeras, playing a combined 155 shows. These include performances at Canadian Music Week, BreakOut West, Tall Tree Music Fesival, Rifflandia Festival, and SunFest in Duncan BC. The band's mandate is to play anywhere and everywhere, which has brought Weber a devoted following that spans generations, made up of folks from both large cities and small towns off the usual touring grid.
Ultimately, the timeless, slow-burning beauty of Valentina Nevada is what sets Sam Weber apart from so many of his peers. As he describes the album himself, "All the songs are about the struggle, but Valentina is the only one that gets past it. When choosing a name for this record, I wanted to put Valentina forard, becase she's ahead of me in a lot of ways."
UPCOMING TOUR DATES:
May 7 - Toronto, ON (CMW @ The Burdock 11PM)
May 27 - Salt Spring Island, BC
