We found out about the terrific San Francisco Bay artist, Valerie JanLois via our SongHunters relationship with She had asked us to review her song "Gentle Me Now" on the Broadjam website (read the original review here). Valerie JanLoisThe song, which is a superb jazzy, blues tune with a style not unlike Patsy Cline meets Ella Fitzgerald or Stella Brooks - is so well-produced, written -- and delivered, that we absolutely gave it the highest rating we could in all categories. Its sad, poignant 1940's sound really grabbed us on the first listen and never let go. We even believe that this song is SO GOOD that it could become a Jazz/Blues standard if given the right opportunity. She has some really incredible players backing her up too and that, along with her vocal make for a sweet listening experience. We hope you enjoy it too!

Valerie is an independent singer/songwriter/artist who is finding much success with her music and building quite a fanbase.

We invite you to check out her website at Her social media links are: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace - and here is her iTunes page.

Valerie is now working with The SongHunters -- and we hope to be able to place this great song in an indie film, television show or commercial someday.

  • "I am one of the top mixers and producers in the country and have had years of experience in the music and associated businesses.

    My company licenses songs and seeks songs to be licensed for films, TV and Commercials and thus I have worked with many people in the licensing industry and discovered there is a wide range and degree of service and quality when you seek songs.

    In my experience, I have found that The SongHunters exhibit a real knack at delivering the right songs and offering a wide range of music in all areas to choose from.

    Dave Hnatiuk, David Weiss and Doug Diamond are hands on and believe the quality service does not stop at sending a music file to choose from. They believe in follow-up and follow-through and are there for you as long as and to the extent that you need them.

    They not only provide great songs for your needs, but also provide you with some great solicitations for your music on their own projects. Do I recommend them? You bet I do! And that recommendation is earned, not just given!"
