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.
